Hi,

I want to know how to do an unattended installation on a windows xp computer that has no floppy drive and is a stand alone computer? All information deals with a computer that has a floppy.


Thanks,

What are you wishing to install? The operating system, software, drivers . . .

You don't have the CD to make the installation?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I have the cd, but what are the procedures for unatteded installation with computers that have no floppy drives. Where do you put the files if the hard drive has no OS?

Hi, you have to go into your Bios and change the boot order to cd> and then hard drive so when your PC starts to boot it will read the windows cd and then your off and running!

What do you do to edit the unattended installation? Also, do you burn a new cd with the file and installation?

Make a customized Windows Install CD with all the drivers already included. Let the install process go ahead 100% unattended, so you can get down to some real work, and leave the "click ok" job to the non-IT folks. - Version 1.0.4
