Here is exactly how you do it. This is my script and it works!

Such a beautiful thing! Everything worked peachy. I have no complaint with my script at all. Create a file called WINNT.SIF. Place it into the I386 directory.

For instructions on what they all mean, SupportToolsDeploy.cab on the Windows XP CD. Thanks to IR from Europe. The file in the deploy.cab that you can reference is ref.chm. Have a nice day!

By the way, Did I say how beautiful it is????? ;)

This one partitions the disk, and upon completion goes directly to the desktop, no welcome, no config, no registration.

enjoy, but remember, this is not legal for Customer distribution, only test and corp distribution :)

I have most of this working now (thank God for CDRWs). I do have one question though. How can I make the unattended setup reformat my first partition for a clean install?

I saw the command - Repartition = Yes , but that wipes out ALL partitions on the first disk. I want to reformat C: but keep D:. Is this possible?

If not, how can I reformat, or wipe clean, my C: drive for a reinstall? I used to do it from the XP setup, but now I am trying to use the unattended setup, so that's not an option. I can't reformat from within XP before the reinstall.

Try this:
[Unattended]

Filesystem=ConvertNTFS ;Specifies whether to convert the primary partition to NTFS or to leave it alone

Granted that you want to use NTFS; this should always format inorder to convert regardless if it is previously FAT or NTFS. Well give it a try. Let me know if it works.

I've heard that on some installs, you have to change the data to this:

[UserData]
ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx


That would be changing ProductID to ProductKey

Hope that helps,

Let me just make sure I understand what I need to do:
1. Copy contents of windows xp cd onto my hard drive
2. Open notepad and paste the following into it (replacing the x's for the product key):
[UserData]
ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
3. Save it as "unattend.txt"
4. Replace the unattend.txt in the i386 directory with the one that was just created

Is that correct??

4. Replace the unattend.txt in the i386 directory with the one that was just created

You need to rename the file to winnt.sif

It will not work if the file is named unattend.txt

After seeing some of your posts, I thought you were having a bad day. But then I looked up all your posts.

You haven't said anything at all that's constructive. Why do you have to belittle everyone on the forum, when they are just trying to learn?

Didn't your mom ever teach you?

Thanks for the reply Jazkal2.....I tried what you said, but it didn't work.......I'm running Windows XP Professional w/ SP1 and here is *exactly* what I did:

1. Created a folder on my desktop named "Windows XP"
2. Copied the contents of my windows xp cd into that folder
3. Opened notepad
4. Pasted the following into notepad:
[UserData]
ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
5. Replaced the x's with my windows xp cd key
6. Saved the file as a text document to my desktop and named it "unattend"
7. Double-clicked the "My Computer" icon on my desktop, clicked on tools>>folder options>>view and then unchecked the box that said "hide extensions for known filetypes"
8. Then I clicked "apply" and then I clicked "OK"
9. I renamed "unattend.txt" to "winnt.sif"
10. I right-clicked winnt.sif and select "cut"
11. I double-clicked on the Windows XP folder on my desktop and then double-clicked the i386 folder
12. I pasted winnt.sif into that directory
13. I went back to the root of the windows xp folder on my desktop and double-clicked setup.exe
14. I clicked "Install Windows XP"
15. I selected "Upgrade (Recommended)" as the installation type and then clicked Next
16. I selected "I accept this agreement" and clicked Next
17. The next screen of the Windows XP installation was the product key screen, and the boxes where you are supposed to enter the product key were left empty :(

What did I do wrong?

cable23,

Go to your XP CD, and look in the support\tools folder for a file called deploy.cab

Use Winzip to extract it somewhere on your computer.

Go to the extracted files and run the "setupmgr.exe" file.

Go through the wizard and fill in the blanks. That will create an unattended file for you.

Then rename the generated unattend.txt file to winnt.sif
