HI

Should I create a custom DVD of Windows 7 (all editions) to force the creation of three partitions: a boot partition, a system partition (C) and a data partition (D) to automatically save the users directories in D:\Users\<Name-user-account>.

The boot partition must be set to 100MB. Instead, the size of the other two partitions must be set directly by the person who will install Windows 7.

So, how do I create this DVD?

THANKS

BYE

I'd likely start with some type of script to automate the DiskPart.exe utility, which reads a text file.

What is the advantage to having three different partitions? We have done it for people by request but prefer to use an external data drive. Just curious if we should consider splitting our install into various partitions.

I actually prefer separate drives: system on one, data on the other, back-ups on a third. I've never trusted software RAID enough to commit my data to it, nor been able to afford a decent hardware RAID controller. Of course, in corporate land, user data will be on a backed-up server, anyway so there's no requirement for data/system separation.
