Hi guys.
I have created a winnt.sif file on a 3.5" floppy diskette to be used in conjunction with the Windows xp Professional CD to perform an unattended installation of Windows.

It runs well, but I would like to create 2 partitions on the hard-disk - C and D - and format these as NTFS.

Any ideas how I can achieve this?

If you like to make multiple partitions on your hard drive you will need to make a minor change to the answer file. In the [Data] section have a look at AutoPartition. With the current setting at one it will automatically choose a partition to install to. This will take away your option to make partitions. If you would rather create your own partitions set the 1 to 0 or to let windows make 2 partitions set to 2
