Part: I Architecture and Installation > Unattended Installation and Sysprep

Chapter 4. Unattended Installation and Sysprep

In This Chapter

In an environment in which a large number of similar computers will need to be upgraded or have Windows XP Professional installed, it is clearly not very feasible for the network administrator to visit each workstation and perform each installation or upgrade. As you saw in the previous chapter, the installation process can take some time to perform and a lot of prompts are used by the Setup program to help you customize the way you want Windows XP installed on your computer. You can do several things to ease this process. In this chapter, you learn how to use the command line syntax for the Windows XP Setup command, and how to use a file called unattend.txt to provide automated answers to the prompts that the setup process expects. To make your job easier, you'll also learn about using the Sysprep utility to assist you in creating an unattended answer file.
