Hello coucou!

You can read some informations inside the "Unattendes Windows Setup Reference for Windows 7".

Inside components | Microsft-Windows-Setup | DiskConfiguration | Type

Extract:

Extended

Specifies that the partition is an extended partition.

An extended partition can be created only on master boot record (MBR)-based disks.

Only one extended partition can exist on a single disk. If an extended partition already exists on the disk, a second extended partition is not created. If the value for the WillShowUI setting is set to Never, an error is logged, and installation is terminated.

Extended partitions are useful if you intend to create more than four volumes on a basic MBR disk. Unlike primary partitions, you do not format an extended partition with a file system. Instead, you create one or more logical drives within the extended partition.

Logical

Specifies that the partition is a logical partition.

Windows® 7 must be installed on either a primary or a logical partition.

A logical partition is a volume that is created inside an extended partition on a basic master boot record (MBR)-based disk.

Logical partitions are similar to primary partitions. However, while only four primary partitions can exist on a single disk, the number of logical partitions that can exist on a disk is unlimited. A logical partition can be formatted and assigned a drive letter.

A logical partition must be created inside an extended partition. If an extended partition does not already exist on the disk or the specified size of the logical drive exceeds the extended partition, no partition is created.

If WillShowUI is set to Never, an error is logged, and installation is terminated.

Cheers

TNX both maxXPsoft and myselgidem.

You'll find the diagram and XML output exactly inside Unattend.chm

Installation Settings Reference/ Components/Microsoft-Windows-Setup/Disk Configuration/Disk/Create Partitions/Create Partition/Type

XML Example

BIOS-Based Systems

The following XML output for the DiskConfiguration setting shows a configuration for a BIOS-based system with six partitions, including three primary partitions, an extended partition, and two logical partitions.

I didn't take yet the decision for the 0x27. As I wrote here above #75 I never used a Recovery partition (utlity 1) before, It is really usefull?

Regarding the utlity 2 parttion its automatically created anyway and 100MB are allowed to it.

Now includes the auditSystem auditUser stuff

x64_AutoUnattend - AUDIT.xml

any ? ask

EDIT: It also shows how if you copy your Drivers folder to root of Dvd and <settings pass="offlineServicing"> and use the

        <component name="Microsoft-Windows-PnpCustomizationsNonWinPE" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<DriverPaths>
<PathAndCredentials wcm:action="add" wcm:keyValue="1">
<Path>%systemdrive%\Drivers</Path>
</PathAndCredentials>
</DriverPaths>
</component>

If you inject Drivers then remove that part

We at MDL Forum have these autounattend.xml files: Files

Hm If we want masstorage drivers (downloaded from lets say driverpacks.net) how to have the setup read from that folder without injecting? Is it that <path>%systemdrive%\Drivers\Whereever we have them</path> line above?

And how about when installing Windows 7? Does masstorage have to be installed to windows as well or is it only for setup (installed to windows by setup)? Not having drivers injected will save some space on my 7 AIO :)

Hm been looking around myself for a quick while..

Hi,

I've prepared Win7 French tested it worked like acharm.

Then I decide to prepare a Win7 English with an added French lagPack. I tested it, and at the end of the install i have a Browser Choice window (see image bellow).

How can I disable that window with Autounattend.xml?

If I recall the <DisableFirstRunWizard>true</DisableFirstRunWizard>

in xml didn't work so I started using a reg in Firstlogoncommands

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

"DisableFirstRunCustomize"=dword:00000001

I've found some help about the first run for Internet Explorer window choice (KB976002).

[solved] Windows 7 KB976002 All Versions

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/what-is-the-browser-choice-update

http://www.forum-unattend.fr/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=541

You can add this reg file inside your unattend installation:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BrowserChoice]
"Shortcut"=dword:00000000
"Enable"=dword:00000000

I hope that can help you!
