I've gotten an assignment to create an unattended Winxp install from a floppy boot. I've found lots of information about how do it from the cd or network, but nothing about booting from a floppy and installing from an unmodified winxp cd.

I've created the unattended.txt (also tried winnt.sys) and winnt.bat, but booting doesn't work.

Anyone know what I must do to succeed?

What do you mean 'booting does not work'?

Are you using a DOS boot disk with CD drivers?

You may want to visit www.bootdisk.com - and look at the item "Windows XP Fresh Install Bootdisk" Not sure I agree with paying for the disk items so you could make you own DOS boot Disk it's up to you....

Be aware that you may be limited to the size of your XP system drive due to the boot environment you use. What's wrong with WinPE or BartsPE?
