Need a little help troubleshooting an answer file issue.
Cannot get preinstall of oem drivers to work.
I have previously used an answerfile (winnt.sif) on a floppy disk to assist in quick installs of XP Pro. I am now in need of using the same answerfile on a machine with no floppy option.
Also, trying to add oem drivers that xp does not have (NIC, video, sound and modem).
I have success in creating a CD that incorporates an answerfile without adding oem drivers.
I can't seem to get the oem drivers to copy over or preinstall.
My winnt.sif file unattended key looks like this:
NIC; Drivers\modem; drivers\video; drivers\chipset; drivers\sound
in the I386 folder I have placed the oem drivers here:
When the machine has finished installing, none of the included drivers have been installed and they also have not been copied to the drivers folder as well. According to the below MS article I should have a folder on the root drive called Drivers and the specified subfolders NIC, Video, etc...
I have looked at the answerfile instructions, various sites on the web and have used this MS KB for guidance:
What am I missing?
