Installing Windows XP from a network. RIS, but not Microsoft

Automatization of the installation process. Response file winnt.sif

For automatic installation I create the file winnt.sif in the catalog C:\NETBOOT\WINXP. I will use the file winnt.sif that was created in the article Creating disk of unattended installing of Windows XP, but I will add the following lines.

It's necessary to add in the section [data]

OriSrc="\\192.168.200.1\WINXP\INSTALL\I386"
OriTyp="4"

I create a new section [SetupData]. Section [SetupData] has to contain the following lines:

	
OsLoadOptions = "/noguiboot /fastdetect"
SetupSourceDevice = "\Device\LanmanRedirector\192.168.200.1\WINXP\INSTALL"

Create a new section [RemoteInstall], with the following contents

Repartition = No
UseWholeDisk = No

As a result, the response file winnt.sif will look the following way.

[data]
AutoPartition=0
MsDosInitiated=1
UnattendedInstall="Yes"
floppyless="1"
LocalSourceOnCD=1
OriSrc="\\192.168.200.1\WINXP\INSTALL\I386"
OriTyp="4"

[SetupData]
OsLoadOptions = "/noguiboot /fastdetect"
SetupSourceDevice = "\Device\LanmanRedirector\192.168.200.1\WINXP\INSTALL"

[GuiUnattended]
OemSkipWelcome = 1
OemSkipRegional = 1
TimeZone = 130
AdminPassword = "*"
AutoLogon = Yes

[Display]

[WindowsFirewall]

[WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall]

[TerminalServices]

[PCHealth]
RA_AllowToGetHelp=0

[GuiRunOnce]
"%SystemDrive%\post_install\runonce.cmd"

Well, that's it. Now we can start installing the operating system. If there are errors that appear in the process of installation, I recommend to pay attention to the following section "Troubleshooting".
