You can !!!

Pay attention to the AutoPartition settings under [Data], and FileSystem, Repartition, and ExtendOEMPartition settings under [unattended]

See below:

[Data]

AutoPartition=1

MsDosInitiated="0"

UnattendedInstall="Yes"

AutomaticUpdates=Yes

[unattended]

UnattendMode=FullUnattended

OemSkipEula=Yes

OemPreinstall=Yes

TargetPath=\WINDOWS

NoWaitAfterGUIMode=1

FileSystem-ConvertNTFS

Repartition=No

ExtendOemPartition=0

DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore

nondriversigningpolicy=Ignore

Hibernation=no

; OemPnPDriversPath=PnPdrvrs\000_cpq_arry;PnPdrvrs\001_cpq_LAN;PnPdrvrs\002_cpq_PSP

WaitForReboot="No"

Some notes.

Shouldn't AutoPartition be on 'Yes'? Otherwise only the first partition is formatted. I think he means the whole drive becomes one partition.

And what does "ExtendOemPartition=0" do? I don't use it, and it works. :)

@ tguy-

I have those exact same settings, short of the repartition settting, which I have set to Yes... and mine doesnt do a full ntfs format. It only does the quick one... I was under the impression it wasnt possible to set this for an unattended install....

Can we kick some life back into this thread please... I'm trying to attain similarly what LanfreeDJ is asking, that is to format C: to NTFS (irrelevant of whether Windows exist or not) without damaging any other partitions on the drive, all without manual intervention.

@LanfreeDJ... Did tguy's example work for you?

@tguy... "FileSystem-ConvertNTFS"... should that read "FileSystem=ConvertNTFS"?

@Nanaki... "Shouldn't AutoPartition be on 'Yes'"... should that read "Shouldn't Repartition be on 'Yes'"?

@durex... I also read elswhere in the forum that this can't be attained with a basic uA and that perhaps this is the one step that should be manualy processed to avoid undesirable results... but it would be nice to have it confirmed.

Cheers all.

Hey there,

I use the Filesystem=ConvertNTFS flag in my WINNT.SIF and it does a quick conversion of my FAT32 C: drive to NTFS during the install without wiping the volume. I do that manually first, and I have a D: FAT32 drive that all my installers are copied to beforehand.

Is that what you're trying to accomplish?
