Unattended setup inside of WAIK-Image


we have here:
a) customized image of Windows 7 professional (updates and drivers included)
b) a folder with customized install of Novell client 2 sp 3

Howto best include this folder in a new Win7 DVD?

We have tested this environment
the folder structure was copied to

The setup runs with the following script in
cd %windir%\system32\oem\nwclient
xcopy *.* c:\nwclient /I /S
cd \nwclient
rd /s /q %windir%\system32\oem\nwclient
But setup runs into error and we had to start it manually after the
Windows setup was completed.
Any suggestions here?

with kindly regards

Have you looked at the autoinstall option from the documentation ?
For our Win 7 images we import the Novell Cert using certmgr.exe into localMachine Root and TrustedPublisher, else it gets stuck on do you accept this publisher to install software
We then call setup.exe with the following command line pointing at the unattend file we created with NCIMAN within Admin folder. Note 2 versions depending on OS type 32 or 64.
setup.exe /acu /NCPF:unattend.txt

When you run with the setup.exe manually, do you get any prompts on screen etc
