    what i wanted to achive: full unattended install of windows xp professional with slipstreamed service pack 2, on harddiscs connected to a 3ware escalade 7000-2 raid-controller. hardware used: MB: asus tusl2-c rev. 1.04 Bios 1012 final CPU: intel celeron 1200 MHz RAM: 512 MB sd-ram NIC: 3com 905b-tx RAID: 3ware escalade 7000-2 ata-raid-controller, using softwareset 7.7.1 HDD: 2x 20 GB ibm dtla-305020 connected to 7000-2 VGA: matrox millennium g200 agp 16MB DVD: toshiba sd-1702, connected to primary master -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- software / tools used: - windows xp cd-rom (german version) - downloaded sp2 network install for german language (WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-DEU.exe, ~ 260MB) - bcd111.zip, wxp10.zip from [url="http://www.nu2.nu"]nu2.nu[/url] page, wnaspi32.dll from ahead software, needed by bcd, is linked at nu2.nu near where bcd111.zip is located. (needed for creating iso file) - setupmgr.exe from the windows xp support tools for sp2 (for creating winnt.sif) - driver files from 3ware for the 7000-2 Controller (filename win2k3.zip ~ 65 kB) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) create directory c:\bcd 2) extract first bcd111.zip to c:\bcd (make sure subfolders are correct extracted), then followed by wxp10.zip. 3) copy wnaspi32.dll to c:\bcd\bin\wnaspi32.dll. 4) copy from your original Windows XP-CD-ROM the folder "I386" including subfolders to c:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files, so that the new structure is the following: c:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files\I386. 5) to slipstream sp2 into your setup files execute [code]"WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-DEU.exe /integrate:c:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files"[/code]; wait for it to finish. 6) create the following folders: [code]c:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files> mkdir $OEM$ mkdir $OEM$\Drv mkdir $OEM$\Drv\000_3ware mkdir $OEM$\TEXTMODE mkdir I386\$OEM$[/code] 7) extract the driver files into the following folders: c:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files\$OEM$\TEXTMODE\ c:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files\$OEM$\Drv\000_3ware\ c:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files\I386\$OEM$\ 8) use setupmgr.exe to create your unattend.txt file. 9) rename the created unattend.txt to winnt.sif 10) I list my winnt.sif for reference: [code];SetupMgrTag [Data]    AutoPartition=1    MsDosInitiated="0"    UnattendedInstall="Yes"    AutomaticUpdates=yes [Unattended]    UnattendMode=FullUnattended    OemSkipEula=Yes    OemPreinstall=Yes    UnattendSwitch="yes"    TargetPath=\WINDOWS    DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore    OemPnPDriversPath="Drv\000_3ware" [GuiUnattended]    AdminPassword=*    EncryptedAdminPassword=NO    AutoLogon=Yes    AutoLogonCount=1    OEMSkipRegional=1    TimeZone=110    OemSkipWelcome=1 [UserData]    ProductKey=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX    FullName="Unattended"    OrgName="Unattended"    ComputerName=XYZ [Display]    BitsPerPel=32    Xresolution=1024    YResolution=768    Vrefresh=85 [TapiLocation]    CountryCode=49    AreaCode=0123 [RegionalSettings]    LanguageGroup=1    SystemLocale=00000407    UserLocale=00000407    InputLocale=0407:00000407 [Branding]    BrandIEUsingUnattended=Yes [URL]    Home_Page=about:blank    Search_Page=http://www.google.de [Shell]    DefaultStartPanelOff=Yes    DefaultThemesOff=Yes [Proxy]    Proxy_Enable=0    Use_Same_Proxy=1 [Identification]    JoinWorkgroup=HOME [Components]   msmsgs=off   msnexplr=off   freecell=off   hearts=off   minesweeper=off   pinball=off   solitaire=off   spider=off   zonegames=off   hypertrm=on [Networking]    InstallDefaultComponents=No [NetAdapters]    Adapter1=params.Adapter1 [params.Adapter1]    INFID=* [NetClients]    MS_MSClient=params.MS_MSClient [NetServices]    MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER [NetProtocols]    MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP [params.MS_TCPIP]    DNS=Yes    UseDomainNameDevolution=No    EnableLMHosts=Yes    AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1 [params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1]    SpecificTo=Adapter1    DHCP=Yes    WINS=No    NetBIOSOptions=0 [MassStorageDrivers]   "AMCC 3ware 7000/8000 Series ATA RAID Controller" = "OEM"   "IDE CD-ROM (ATAPI 1.2)/PCI IDE-Controller" = "RETAIL" [OemBootFiles]   TXTSETUP.OEM   oemsetup.inf   3wManage.inf   AmccDrv7.cat   3wDrv100.sys   3wFltdrv.sys[/code] [img]http://www.msfn.org/board/style_images/1/icon13.gif[/img] be sure to make no typos, especially at the [MassStorageDrivers] section. the german version has a hiphen between IDE and Controller, the english not, can be very bad, because no accessible cd-rom at the gui-setup part leads to failure. 11) two ways now: way one: put the final winnt.sif to c:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files\I386\winnt.sif and create the iso file by typing the following at prompt: [code]c:\bcd>bcd wxppro -b[/code] this iso file burned to a cd-rw can be used to install without a floppydrive. way two: put the final winnt.sif to a floppy. create the iso file by typing the following at prompt: [code]c:\bcd>bcd wxppro -b[/code] this way you can have more than one preconfigured floppies for use with that cd-rw. 12) burn the iso file to a cd-rw, i used nero burning rom for this. 13) boot search order at bios: 1. cd-rom 2. harddisc (3ware) 3. floppy be sure that floppy is behind both of the first. 14) Insert the cd-rw and floppy into their drives and go for it. you will only be prompted once for creating a partition to install to and how to format her, the rest wents completely from alone. PS: I know how to create a formatted partition with a BartPE cd, then you will not even be prompted once. Enjoy !
