    I was wondering if anyone could help me with an unattended installation.

    I went thru the setup manager and setup a fully automated xp pro installation. I then renamed the unattend.txt file to winnt.sif i also renamed the bat file to winnt.bat
    here is a copy of what the bat looks like:

    @rem SetupMgrTag
    @echo off

    rem
    rem This is a SAMPLE batch script generated by Setup Manager.
    rem If this script is moved from the location where it was generated, it may have to be modified.
    rem

    set AnswerFile=.\winnt.sif
    set SetupFiles=.\i386

    ..\i386\winnt32 /s:%SetupFiles% /unattend:%AnswerFile% /copysource:lang


    I restarted the computer with the floppy in the floppy drive and the xp pro cd in the cdrom drive. The boot sequence is set to read the cd then the floppy then the hard drive. It then prompts me to boot from cd and so I do. It then reads the floppy disk for a second before it prompts for installation of raid drivers but the installation never automates. Ive tried about everything i can think of and it will not work. Any ideas?
