"Press any key to setup" is gone?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I've just made a unattended XP CD. When I boot my computer with it, the "Press any key to setup" is missing, instead of that, it automatically format my hard disk, and setup the window XP.

I thought it was a good thing, but when the computer reboot during the setup, it automatically format my hard disk again....

Is there something wrong with my code (show as below)? I want the "Press any key to setup" back, how do I do it?

Maybe your bootsector got corrupted somehow, just extract it again from your original windowsxp cd (use isobuster) and try again, I see notyhing wrong on your winnt.sif

PS If i don't recall wrong aaronxp posted it somewhere here in the forums

bootfix.bin is a file that causes youe pc to give higher priority to booting from the HD so that it won't boot from the cd every time the installation restarts your pc. this file basically eliminated the hassle of removing the cd before the installation restarts the first time. so after the first restart your hardisk already has a boot information in it's boot section and your pc boots from the hardisk and not the cdrom

On Your Hard disk you should have your unnatended project folder called "XPCD" or something like that. In that folder should be your "I386" and "$OEM$" folders amongst others.

In the "I386" folder should be a file called bootfix.bin, if that file is missing then your cd will not show the "press any key to boot from the cd" message.
