History

#1 Updated by Ohad Levy over 8 years ago

a few options to achieve this:

  1. boot a WINPE instance which in turn starts the normal windows explorer, this is probably the safest way.
  2. boot a floppy disk (using memdisk) which loads network, map network shares and starts the unattended setup - this works well for winXP, not sure if it still works on newer versions of windows.

I'm going to close this old ticket now, but if there's anything else I've missed, do re-open it with more detail.
