Unattended Installation with Mass Storage Devices (SCSI RAID)

Guest

I am setting up an unattended installation of Windows 2000 Pro and the
Machine that I am running the install against has a SCSI RAID card that I am
trying to load during the Text Install. I am able to press F6 and load the
drivers from a diskette, but when running an unattended install using the
same TXTSETUP.OEM and drivers i get the following error:

File txtsetup.oem caused an unexpected error (18) at line 1041 in
D:\nt\private\ntos\boot\setup\oemdisk.c.

I have a custom 2000 install CD and have placed the drivers and txtsetup.oem
in \$oem$\textmode

My winnt.sif looks like such:

[Unattended]
OemPreinstall = Yes

Hi,

There's a few aspects to this:

1. Why do you need a RAID driver at text setup time? Does your SCSI card
have a BIOS and if so, does it correctly enum your drives and make them
available to an o/s? If not, why not?

2. The TXTSETUP and [MassStorageDrivers] thing appears to only work with
network builds, NOT CD-ROM builds. If you want to use a CD-ROM you may
need to hack your TXTSETUP.SIF file (or what ever it's called) and
that's not very easy, but certainly possible.
