SmartStart 7.71

Looking at the new Smartstart 7.71 I see that it has an option to install WIndows from a network share. However it does not seem to work for me.

The Smartstart install lets me browse to the i386 directory containing the files... but when I click continute it reports invalid entry.

For example I have the files in a share called Win2003. My path is /mount/win2003/i386

Within Smartstart I can see all the needed files and directories. But it will not let me continue. I am missing something simple?

Re: SmartStart 7.71

For SmartStart to see your Windows 2003 files, you need pass the path to the ROOT of the CD-ROM. In your case it should be /mount/win2003. SmartStart is looking for some files that are at the root of the CD-ROM.

How do I get smartstart loading from a USB to load a license key automatically for an ISA install of Windows 2003 Standard-SP1?
The key to success is persistence
