Unattended XP Pro installation and SATA drivers (normally F6)
Posted on 2004-11-12
I want to do an unattended installation of XP Pro on a standalone PC. The actual reason that I want to do this is so that I can move my Documents and Settings to another partition. I have a few questions:
1. Does anyone know of an idiot guide to doing this, or can you provide one?
2. I have 4 partitions on my hard drive. When I do an ordinary installation, it often manages to reassign the drive letter names. How can I be sure then that my Documents and Settings ends up on the right partition (D:)?
3. When I do a normal installation I have to put a floppy drive in with my SATA harddrive driver files and I press F6 right at the start of the installation. What do I do with these driver files and how do I get around the need to press F6 because with it being unattended I imagine that this is not going to be an option.
