Preparing a disk for an unattended install of Vista

Written by on Tuesday, January 1, 2008 10:31 - 0 Comments

Here’s a tip for preparing a disk for an unattended install of Windows Vista.

Before you can install Vista onto a bare-metal system, you must prepare the disk by creating a partition. To do this, you must configure the following answer file component:

Microsoft-Windows-SetupDiskConfigurationDiskCreatePartitionsCreatePartition

The setting you normally configure for this component is called Size, which you use to specify the size in GB of the partition you are creating. However, if you don’t know the size of your disk, or if you want to create as large a partition as possible, use the Extend setting instead. By configuring this setting as True, Windows Setup will create a partition that fills the entire disk. ')}
