I have this winnt.sif

[Data]
AutoPartition=1
MsDosInitiated="0"
UnattendedInstall="Yes"

[Unattended]
UnattendMode=FullUnattended
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
OemSkipEula=Yes
OemPreinstall=Yes
ExtendOemPartition=8000
Repartition=No ( i have try egally with yes)


I try to create a full cdrom install, but i have only one physical disk of
80 Go
I want to install windows 2000 in a partiton of 8 Go.
I does'nt want that windows create one partion of all the disk.
So i have try to custom my winnt.sif but it doesn't work.

How can i procede ? I doesn't want that Windows ask me any question.
I want create an automatic install of windows with this custom cdrom ,
on a full new disk , or on a disk with old partition.

I have try to use diskpart , but diskpart on a script is to late, because
you can't partition the system partition where you have just finish to
install
windows.

Thanks for any idea !

You cannot specify the exact size from winnt.sif...

What you can do is to create the partition prior to launching the
install and then have Repartition=No set in winnt.sif

You'll need to use tools like Windows PE to do this (available for
customers with SA or other enterprise agreements).

Then you have Windows PE to create the partitions (using diskpart) and
then launch winnt32 with an unattended script file (you'll of course
need to add the Windows 2000 installation files to the windows pe cd
as well)
