OS installs on F: partition only when using Avocent USB KVM
Posted on 2006-11-09
Hey Guys, this one has me stumped.
We have several scripted unattended server build methods, RIS, DVD. Both have been working flawlessly for years.
Recently we started using Avocent KVM switches. These switches have the ability to provide remote floppy/CD via the USB dongle that provides the keyboard/mouse.
The problem is the OS detects the USB virtual disks (floppy/CD) during the CD based setup and after the OS installs it is on the F: partition as opposed to the C: partition if we didn't use the Avocent KVM.
The server BIOS doesn't allow me to disable only the USB storage, it will only disable the USB ports, so I can't do that since I need that for keybaord/mouse.
Is there a way in the unattended setup to force the OS partition to be C: or prevent USB mass storage detection during the setup? Diskpart isn't much good since, the OS is already installed and it won't let me change the boot partition.
Any help would be great.
