  • Windows XP SP1 under RIS

    I have a Windows 2000 Server with SP3, which I use to install client by using RIS.

    Till now, I installed Windows 2000 Professional with SP3 on the clients.
    Since some of my client computers have Linux installed, I added the Repartition=Yes under the [Unattended] section in the SIF file, so the installation would repartition the main drive of the client computer and installed windows.

    Recently I created a Windows XP with SP! distribution and added it to the RIS server. again, so automate the reparitioning procedure, i added the Repartition=Yes line to the SIF file, but this time, it doesn't help.
    When I try on install the XP by RIS on Linux-Installed computers, the installation doesn't repartition the disk, and waits for me to handle the partitioning phase.

    Why this worked on Win2k installations and not on WinXP installations as well?

      Yes I have, but that didn't help either.
      also, UseWholeDiskSpace isn't for RIPrep images only?

      BTW, mine isn't...
