now that nLite has built a new slipstreamed source on E: (logical partition on 2nd HDD), can I install to the primary of the 2nd HDD (future boot drive)

the target drive D: is parltitioned and preformatted (FAT32 for now, NTFS later)

from E:\I386, I would run "winnt32 /t:d:" to direct target drive to d: (kb155197)

I think nLite sets up the unattended answerfile winnt.sif with an expectation that the target HDD is not formatted and there are no other HDDs in the system

In this case, I want to install to a second hdd in an existing 2k system.

It looks like I would need to add the following to the [unattended] section of the nLite generated winnt.sif answer file:

[Data]
AutomaticUpdates="No"
Autopartition=0
MsDosInitiated=0
UnattendedInstall="Yes"

[Unattended]
UnattendMode=FullUnattended
UnattendSwitch="Yes"
OemPreinstall="No"
OemSkipEula="Yes"
;==================
;FileSystem=*
;the above line obviously works
;but I can't find documentation on the "*" value
;other choices are ConvertNTFS|LeaveAlone

;==================
WaitForReboot="No"
NoWaitAfterTextMode=1
NoWaitAfterGUIMode=1
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
Hibernation="No"
;==================
;the above are by nLite
;the following are added
;------------------------
FileSystem=LeaveAlone
Repartition="No"
ExtendOemPartition=0

;==================
;also add for drivers to prevent overwrite of unsigned $OEM$s
OverwriteOemFilesOnUpgrade="No"


has anyone ever tried this? might be a way to test real mode drivers without burning/installing from a cd
