FAQ | F6 mass storage drivers from floppy AND unattended install?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I work for a compagnie where we have a big problem with a unatended install of Windows XP Proffesional..

We want that the setup looks for drivers on a floppy disk. If we dont use winnt.sif there is no problem, but if we use winnt.sif the setp dont copy the rais drivers.

Do you have a solution??

set this optoin in win.sif to "no"

UnattendedInstall="Yes"

it should then allow the use of the F6 key and allow everything else to function as per your unattended cd according to the winnt.sif file

Read section #1 of the sticky: there you can find links to some tutorials that explain you how to slipstream mass storage drivers into your UWXPCD: that way you won't have to use a floppydisk anymore at all! ;)

And last but not least --- the correct answer:

[unattended]

UnattendMode=FullUnattended

OemSkipEula=Yes

OemPreinstall=No

TargetPath=\WINDOWS

UnattendSwitch="yes"

FileSystem=*

OemPnPDriversPath="No"

BeenThereB4 is correct, that's the easiest solution in this case, since you do not seem to be using the OemPnPDriversPath! (Disabling OemPreInstall obviously disables copying the contents of the $OEM$ folder to the HDD.

I had the same problem

But me I do need to copy the OEM folder to my HDD cause I do auto install software at the end when XP boot.

Is there a solution then ?

Thank you

If you need to copy the $OEM$ directory, then the simplest solution is pointed to in post #6 above.

I can't do that cause I format a lot of PCs, and need different RAID drivers

I want to use a Floppy to get the drivers

So there is no solution to use a floppy and use the OEM folder ?

It sounds impossible to me :/

Let me know if you know another solution

Thank you

Well, what I do (But, I'm a programmer) is run a program (customized to my needs) from svcpack.inf that copies the stuff from $OEM$ to all the places that it needs to go. Best of both worlds!

Hehe that was a great idea

I'll explain you what I did !

I have some updates that I install in SVCPACK.INF

[setupHotfixesToRun]

2.exe /Q /O /N /Z

3.exe /Q /O /N /Z

4.exe /Q /O /N /Z

5.exe /Q /O /N /Z

6.exe /Q /O /N /Z

7.exe /Q /O /N /Z

8.exe /Q /O /N /Z

9.exe /Q /O /N /Z

So I made a file named COPYSOFT.CMD and I putted an XCOPY in it to copy the file I want on C:

I tested the .CMD and it works fine in windows.

So I edited my SVCPACK.INF and now it looks like this

SetupHotfixesToRun]

COPYSOFT.CMD

2.exe /Q /O /N /Z

3.exe /Q /O /N /Z

4.exe /Q /O /N /Z

5.exe /Q /O /N /Z

6.exe /Q /O /N /Z

7.exe /Q /O /N /Z

8.exe /Q /O /N /Z

9.exe /Q /O /N /Z

Problem is I tried to reinstall windows and it's like it didn't worked, no file was copied on my C:

Is SVCPACK.INF run .CMD or only .EXE ?

Do I need to put it in another part of the file ?

I'm trying something else right now, I put the XCOPY in the useraccounts.cmd file and this one I'm sure it's working at the end of installation of XP I see the dos window executing the commands in it

Well if there is a way to makes CMD works in SVCPACK.INF let me know

Thank for your idea it's a good one :)

Ok !

If I put the XCOPY in useraccounts.cmd it works #1 !

All the files was copied on the C: and in the first logon all the soft was installed !

Thanks to everybody for their help

If someone knows a way to add it to SCVPACK.INF let me know but if there is no solution, I'll stay with useraccounts.cmd

Thx again :)
