ACU unattended install & windows 7

Hi all: Just getting going on our first test machine with Windows 7 64-bit. Learning as I go. On of the first things I have come across is that there does not seem to be a way to make an unattended install file like with the Novell client for XP. It also appears, based on a few TIDs, that the Novell client for Win7 CANNOT be totally unattended due to a Microsoft requirement of accepting a signed driver.

If the above is true, I am curious how people do re-imaging and unattended setups of Win 7 machines?

Thanks, Chris.

Chris sounds like they 'said':

So my response to Chris's comment is...

Oh, but it is possible to do these things. Check out this:

http://www.novell.com/documentation/windows_client/pdfdoc/windows_client
_admin/windows_client_admin.pdf

Check the section on advanced installation options. Nciman.exe still
works, to create a response file.

Kicker is editing the install.ini file once you've exploded the client
into a folder. Then from a dos prompt, run acu.exe /? to see the
options available.

Thanks Steve. And I read another of your threads which helps me out on the elevated command prompt for accepting Novell as a Trusted Publisher.
