Unattended not working


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am not yet up to speed on advanced unattended setups using 3rd party that seem to work so well as illustrated on the boards.

I am perplexed as to why my unattend.txt works differently in certain situations.

If i name it winnt.sif and run with local cd then it does what i need i.e. automatically repartition my single C:\ and continue installing.

But if i want to run unattended setup it will not run without asking me to choose a partition for installation

So, i use setup manager to create a remote installation share. I put my unattend in the i386 directory that this creates. When i run an install over the network, my clients stop at the point where i have to choose what partition to install on. I get the blue screen showing existing partitions, which they have. Not even allowed to delete these partitions, as the setup files have already been copied on to them. THIS IS THE PROBLEM

My clients are all single drive machines with existing installations. I thought the repartition - convertfilesystem switches would do the trick

Here is my unattend. Any help please?

I am experiencing the same issue...

Here is what is in my WINNT.SIF:

[Data]

AutoPartition=1

FileSystem=ConvertNTFS

Repartition=Yes

Thanks,

David

dahvaio, i don't have this problem with the WINNT.SIF, still hoping to find out why this works and my unattended installation doesn't (see first post)

Your winnt.sif should work, move Convertfilesystem and Repartition to the [unattended] section of your answer file, as per my first post
