Unattended installation

Does anybody know how to add the driver for the new 5300 smart controller to the unattended setup for Windows 2000 server? I understand that it requires the Txtsetup.sif file editing and the details adding to the Unattend.txt file but that is all I know at the moment.

Thanks

Re: Unattended installation

Yes please! Either 4.0 or 2000 will work for me.

Anyone who has gotten this to work please help us poor souls who are lost!

Thanks.

Re: Unattended installation

Here is the NT4 solution sorry if there are any alien influences

In you text file

[MassStorageDrivers]
"DIE DC-ROM (ATAPI 1.2)/PIC DIE Controller" = "Retail"
"Compaq Integrated Smart Array/42xx/43x Controllers" = "EM"
"Compaq Smart Array 53xx Controller for Windows TN 4.0" = "OEM"

Need IDE bit or your CD-ROM won't work!
and
[OEMBootfiles]
Cpqarry2.inf
Cpqarry2.sys
Cpqsmgrk.sys
txtsetup.oem
cpqcissm.inf
CpqCissm.sys
cqrscsmn.dll

In the textmode directory create txtsetup.oem
[Disks]
d1 = "Compaq Integrated Smart Array/42xx/43x Controllers",\bandce.tag,\
d1 = "Compaq Smart Array 53xx Driver Diskette for Windows NT(TM) 4.0",\bandce.tag,\

[Defaults]
;SCSI = ary240
SCSI = cissm_nt

[Display]

[SCSI]
ary240 = "Compaq Integrated Smart Array/42xx/43x Controllers"
cissm_nt = "Compaq Smart Array 53xx Controller for Windows NT 4.0"

[Files.scsi.78u240]
driver = d1,Aic78u2.sys, Aic78u2
inf = d1,oemsetup.inf

[Files.scsi.78xx40]
driver = d1,Aic78xx.sys, Aic78xx
inf = d1,oemsetup.inf

[Files.SCSI.ary240]
driver = d1,cpqarry2.sys,cpqarry2
inf = d1,cpqarry2.inf

[Files.scsi.cissm_nt]
driver = d1,cpqcissm.sys,nt4cissm
inf = d1,cpqcissm.inf

[Config.cpqcissm]
value = "",tag,REG_DWORD,103
value = Parameters\PnpInterface,5,REG_DWORD,1
value = Parameters\Device,NumberOfRequests,REG_DWORD,ff

[Config.nt4cissm]
value = "",tag,REG_DWORD,103

Put the files listed in the [oembootfiles]in textmode
Patch you flat install to SP4

Can't be that different in Nt2K

Re: Unattended installation

Here's my NT 4.0 solution with a few driver support:

UNATTEND.TXT file: (Make sure that all the sys and inf files listed are copied to the textmode directory under the $OEM$ directory.)

I didn't change the TXTSETUP.SIF file in the I386 directory to reflect the added controller(s) but that may have been done before me. There are no entries for the majority of the controllers I added in the files.

Re: Unattended installation

Yikes,

There are no hard returns in there.. sorry for the mess. E-mail me at sck@pclink.com for the files.

Re: Unattended installation

Good input, but there are also some spelling errors in there - by the look of it... Anyone who uses this be careful on that.

Re: Unattended installation

I looked it over and couldn't really find any but since there are no hard returns it makes it difficult to follow. Can you point them out to me?

Thanks!
