Hi all,

I'm building an unattended inst of Windows Server 2003 Standard R2 SP2.
Unfortunately R2 remains it's own install, even with the current set of SP2 R2 CDs.
Also, R2 contains long file names and I'm tied to DOS for the initial copy.
So I created an SFX archive of the R2 folder with 7-zip. I unpack the folder in the cmdlines (the $OEM$ stuff at t-12 minutes) with "R2.exe -y -oCMPNENTS" Works fine so far, but when I then try to install calling "CMPNENTS\R2\setup2.exe /q /a /p:key /sr" nothing happens.
I now tried a workaround by calling the same line as Command0 in [GuiRunOnce] of the unattend.txt, but I'd like it better to run inside the cmdlines.

Anybody gotten this to work with w2k3 server sp2?

Cheers,
Konstantin

You need to copy the R2 disc to root of CD1, more info on http://www.msfn.org

For some reason it doesn't work from inside cmdlines. However calling the setup later (first thing after setup and not from Command0 but from a batch in Command0) with cmd /c im front works like a charm.
