Install Windows XP by using UDF

Dear,

I use Microsoft setup manager to create answer file which I used to automatically install windows XP. When I use the answer file, I boot from XP CD, and then I put the floppy disk, when the blue screen comes, I make the portioning (C & D) and then I choose NTFS as file system. After that the computer restart and its start using the answer file.

Actually Im asking for; how to make a full automatically installation. I need to specify the portioning & file system in the answer file, so when I use the answer file I will not make any other action.

Please help me on this.

Thanks

The best option for this is to make your own custom unattended windows cd. This process can be as involved or as simple as you want - you can actually make the cd (or dvd if you want) install applications, drivers, hotfixes, and more if you want. Take a look at the following link which will guide you on how to do all of this:

I hope this helps. Good luck.

An answer file cannot help you partition the drive. The best option for this would be a fully unattended custom cd like I said in my first post.
Good luck.
