I have been exploring the developer tools in XP trying for a semi-automated install CD.
I downloaded the latest "Windows XP Service Pack 2 Deployment Tools" and followed the bouncing ball although nowhere (that I could see) did it explain how to run unattended from a CD, and where to but the answer files.
I:\i386\winnt32 /s:%SetupFiles% /unattend:%AnswerFile% /copysource:lang
Obviously if running of CD using a drive letter aint going to work so I tried replacing occurrences of the drive letter with %CDROM% which I remember (correctly I hope) from back in the good old days of DOS.
I also read that on a CD, unatended.bat & unattended.txt had to be called winnt.bat and winnt.sif, so just to be on the safe side I included those as well.
I put all those files in the root of the CD but to my dismay, when I ran the install the answer file didn't kick in.
I was rather sad as I had spent a few hours slipstreaming SP2 and critical updates and messing on with the deployment tools.
Anyone got any ideas about what I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance
