win2k3 unattended results

Recommended Posts

ok, my first results on win2k3:

success !!!!!

well, almost, symantec corporate didnt install right, i will play with the switches for it, i have it in MSI file and not in the regular symantec packager, and i applied regular msi switches, but it didnt work, well, im sure ill be able to fix it.

all the rest worked great except for a fact that it took like 7 hours to install on Virtual PC, is that normal? i installed redhat at work on virtual pc, and it took hours as well, is VMWare faster by any chance?

If available please run ISScript.msi or contact your support personal for futher assistance". any ideas why im getting this message?

I had no problems installing SAV 8.1, it might be that there are different compiled client installs made by the Symantec Packager.

VirtualPC shouldn't take 7 hours. On this 1.4GHz it takes about an hour and a half, try going into the Virtual PC preferences and set this: Divide Time equally, and Run at Maximum speed.

im sick of switching from my main os onto a os on another partition to test installs :)

it installs the OS for real on emulated hardware into one Virtual PC Image file (that's what makes it slow).

It won't overwrite anything on your hard disks/partitions.

The only thing you can't test on it is your updated drivers, since it cannot emulate an Nvidia card, only an S3 gfx card or something like that.
