Hi,
I am very new to this forum & not familiar with the un attended installation. but i need to make one my own. so i have followed the instructions on, one of the other site & i have used "setup manager" to make my answer file. i have done it as per the instructions on that web site & here with attached the "WINNT.sif" file for your reference.
My problem is it has not allowed me to select the installation partition. i have already changed "AutoPartition=0" as instructed in this site also. but it's not stopped me to choose the installing partition.
So i add another line as instructed in this site as follows & that also not helped me. i lost all my data was on my HDD as XP setup formatted my entire HDD as one single partition.

Secondly added " FileSystem=*" & nothing was different.

Pls find my bellow "WINNT.sif" file what i have used.

Hi,
Appreciate if some one can help me on this. according to the guide here it s/b following lines to select installation partition manually.

[Data]
AutoPartition=0


[Unattended]
FileSystem=*

Which i have already done in my WINNT.sif file. but still i can't select partition manually.

Pls adv me how can i get this sorted. (As i need to have my all other data in a separate partition)

Thanks in advance.

You can see this behavior running the install from the HD that you are attempting to reload.

Can you confirm this issue occurs when running from bootable media?

And you should really look into virtualbox or virtualpc, it will save you from the whole "i lost all my data" action.

Hi,
Many thanks iamtheky, for trying to help me.

Yes i have installed it with a hot hot cd which i have burned through Nero. & next time I'll be use my extra Hdd to test my experiments.

Do i have to change anything in my ".sif" file? also will it install if i try to burn it to R/RW media?

Thanks again.

[Unattended]
FileSystem=*
UnattendMode=DefaultHide

I have UnattendMode=FullUnattended


and with FileSystem=* it still stops and waits, maybe that difference alone, but I can find no supporting documentation (cant find any to the contrary either, but it could still be very wrong)

Hi,

this should work:

[Data]
	AutoPartition=0
	MsDosInitiated=0
	UnattendedInstall=Yes

[Unattended]
	Repartition=No
	UnattendMode=FullUnattended
	OemSkipEula=Yes
	OemPreinstall=Yes
	UnattendSwitch=yes
	WaitForReboot=No

Hi,
Thanks "HOLLOW". it has worked finally with your instructions above. anyway i have add another line under "[Unattended]" as follows in addition to your above lines.


[Unattended]
Repartition=No
UnattendMode=FullUnattended
FileSystem=*

Thanks alot for spending your time for me. also thanks for "iamtheky" for trying to help me.

I'm having another question,
Is there any sequence that we need to arrange lines under one category?

Ex..

[Unattended]
Repartition=No
UnattendMode=FullUnattended
OemSkipEula=Yes

[Unattended]
UnattendMode=FullUnattended
OemSkipEula=Yes
Repartition=No

Is it make any difference? i think that we need to have a sequence for categories (First [Data]
second [Unattended] like wise)
but not for the lines under one category. pls explain.


Thanks,
Sathika.

Hi,

I think there is no sequence and it should work fine in any order.
