WinPE2.0 booted via RIS, I try to launch winxp's setup.exe but the option to install is disabled because the WinPE2.0 version supercedes that of the installation source's.
Is there a flag to XP's setup.exe to tell it to ignore the booted OS's versions and to just carry on with the installation?
This seems like there should be.

You want to run the installation from Winnt32.exe.

You also want to do an Unattended installation so you can partition and format the C: drive then install the OS to that partition.

You may want to head on over here:  http://www.msfn.org/board/Unattended-Windows-2000-X-f70.html

There are tons and tons of ideas there on how/what to do for unattended installs using the answer file.  Rather than post stuff verbatim, you can browse that site at your leisure and get some really cool ideas for your deployments.

Cheers,
NM
