Creating an Automated Install of WindowsXP

On the WindowsXP CD, in the SUPPORT\TOOLS directory, there is a file called DEPLOY.CAB.

Extract the programs DEPLOY.CHM (help file) and SETUPMGR.EXE (main program) Run SETUPMGR and answer the prompts. This will create both a unattend.bat and unattend.txt file you can use for automated installs. Note: The batch file might need some minor modification for file locations but it is fairly basic.

a lot of people know that, but thanks for putting it out here for people who don't, the thing we all need to know is how we make the disc bootable and where to place those files, and what files to replace.

Amigo,

No need to get sensitive. I told the man I was sorry, take a deep breath and fix my computer.
