Hey all,

I work for a non-profit that refurbishes old computers, and as such there are sometimes extra partitions and such on computers. I want the WINNT.sif to make one partition on the drive, then format it NTFS and install Win2k automatically. The current WINNT.sif I have doesn't seem to actually format the drive, it skips through the EULA and such properly, then says 'Formatting' but never moves from 0%, and then starts copying files. So the below sort of works, but I don't think it deletes partitions/formats right:

[Data]
Autopartition = 1
MsDosInitiated = 0
UnattendedInstall = Yes
UseWholeDisk = Yes

[Unattended]
DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore
ExtendOemPartition = 1
FileSystem=ConvertNTFS
OemPreinstall = Yes
Repartition = Yes
TargetPath=\WINDOWS
UnattendMode = FullUnattended
UnattendSwitch = Yes
OemSkipEula = Yes
WaitForReboot = No
NoWaitAfterTextMode = 1
NoWaitAfterGUIMode = 1
NonDriverSigningPolicy = Ignore

(and yes there is more below, but that all works right)

Thanks in advance...

I done this once awhile back, you have too many invalid entries.

UseWholeDisk - Valid only for RIPrep (Remote Installer Preparation) images

FileSystem=ConvertNTFS - Don't think you need that with the
Repartition = Yes >> Deletes all partitions on the first drive and reformats the drive with NTFS.

So to sum it up I think you only need these 2 entries and not the others I mentioned
Autopartition = 1
Repartition = Yes
of course with your others

This is part of my winnt.sif and it works fine, it reformats the drive and only adds one partition.

Good Luck.
