I forget the names, but there were a couple of utils for unattended Windows configuring and scripting I looked at and dismissed a long time ago, prob here on MSFN. But they went the XML route for simple config files (as opposed to INI files) or cooked their own wimpy scripting lang.
Back in the light .
Actually there's a pretty simple reason for that: Very few manufacturers make their drivers so they can be read easily or compatible, often times building their driver trees (all the files and infs) in such a nonstandard way that sometimes they NEED their own installer apps to get them to work. What fun, eh?
Txtmode to GUI mode is the main issue. Windows recognise the correct Silicon Image drivers for formating and copying files in txtmode but it all goes tits up after the first reboot. Windows decides it doesn't actually like the drivers anymore and tries to install some other random driver instead then BSOD. It's a known issue with the MassStorage DP. I'm happy to live without them so-long-as a have a floppy drive.
No thanx. I've already got Python in BartPE. I just need to spend a weekend and write the code !
Will look into the UBCD4WIN forum for that driver pack. BTW, have you looked into WinBuilder at all ? Jet
No, I've only ever used ERD and UBCD4Win. What's Python about?
Which tool is that?
I'll try to find a link for you.
Edit: search for "XPSetupLauncher" on this page There isn't a download or link so it must be a member contribution.
