can I install to D:

1 post in this topic

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
