    They're probably teaching you this because you can't run Windows installers until after Windows is installed, and even then your unattended installation will run in command-line mode.

    Man it's been many years since I even thought about unattended installs but isn't there a way to schedule what gets installed when??? Can't you just move the driver install to later in the process, after win is installed??

    I have a hard time believing that all the unattended installs of the world "need" dos drivers. That just doesn't make much sense.

    Yeah Coottie, you wouldnt believe the stuff they are teaching us in class....this is my 2nd year in this program. The firt semester was all DOS stuff.... like how to delete files in dos or how to create files ect.

    This year they are teaching us how to us Windows NT 4.0 and learning about pentium 1 and such...they are now teaching us Modems /shrugh

    Deus I got this from the site u gave me:

    Coottie, I think the issue is that the unattended install is pulling installation files off the network and as such the installer needs NIC drivers that are compatible with the OS it's running in. Even if it installs Windows, it may not reboot and load Windows before resuming the installation, because Windows has a way of doing all kinds of shit when you reboot that get in the way of manually installing drivers. PnP would be so much better if it had an OFF switch.

    Biskit, that's weird. I've never gotten that error before.
