i did it the manual way from Guide for MultiBoot USB-stick with boot.ini Menu except when creationg the localsource, i added
for the unattended stuff created by nLite
oh maybe i found it
but will it cause any difference? like it becomes not unattended? if so what does the [Unattended] section actually do? how can it be so "unimportant" that i can just remove it like that?
Install XP and leave stick plugged in until after the first logon screen.
1. If you use an answer file when launching WINNT32.EXE make sure you delete the whole [Unattend] section in WINNT.SIF, otherwise you won't be able to use System Restore and SETUP will not prompt on which partition to install.
2. If you use BTS mass storage DP method 2 and repair install then include the following line in \$WIN_NT$.~LS\I386\PRESETUP.CMD
DEL /F %systemroot%\system32\setupold.exe
or GUI Setup stops at start, complaining about fake setup being executed.
3. If during TEXT MODE your usb stick is listed first when SETUP searches for disks , above SATA/SCSI disks, disable in BIOS IDE channels including the ones with CDROM/DVD attached or disconnect them, this should fix the order. Do not continue install if stick is listed first, this will corrupt files and MBR on it.
my unattended section
[Unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended UnattendSwitch="Yes" OemPreinstall="Yes" OemSkipEula="Yes" FileSystem=* WaitForReboot="No" NoWaitAfterTextMode=1 NoWaitAfterGUIMode=1 DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore unused=unused
