$oem$ For Xp Sp2

Recommended Posts

I am creating a new network distribution point for unattended XPSP2. I already have distribution points for SP1 and Win2K SP4 and they work flawlessly. SP2 installs fine from the source, but nothing in the $oem$ folder gets copied to the HD. I have several folders (drivers, hotfixes, config files, etc.) in the $oem$, but non of them are on the c drive when setup completes. My $oem$ on the other 2 distrobutions is under the i386 and works, but when it didn't work on SP2, I tried moving it parrallel to the i386, still no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong?

r u sure you have specified the correct value to the OEMFilesPath entry?

as the path to the share correctly? also that the answer file is set to search for oem files... oempreinstall = yes?

It doesnt mention anything about this in the guide so I blame it  :w00t:  :whistle:

winnt.sif reference

OemPreinstall=Yes or No

This option is default to No but if you are using the $OEM$ Distribution folders then it needs to be set to Yes, so that Setup regards this installation as a distribution and copies these files over to the system drive. This occurs at the end of Text-mode Setup.

This was not seen when you read the guide? :o
