I am in process of creating a totally automated install of Windows
2000 server. I have run into problems doing the install with two
different motherboards (Intel SE7501HG2 and SE7501BR2) as noted below.
I started with the first server, ...HG2, and got tired of beating my
head on it, so I went over to another system (SE7501BR2) that has a
different RAID controller, a320raid.sys driver. I have the exact same
issue. I've found that the issue is from two lines in my winnt.sif
file; OEMPreInstall=Yes and OEMPnPDriversPath="???". It also happens
when I use the OEMFilesPath= "???" line.
Issue: When these lines are in the script, I get an error while in
TextMode during the Windows 2000 unattended install: Error, Cannot
copy file raidsrc.sys ... esc to skip, ...
I pressed esc and then I get the BSOD with an error stating
Inaccessiable boot device.
Now the gottcha here is that the exact same thing happens to a
different system with a different raid controller.
The first system is an intel motherboard (SE7501HG2)with a PCI SCSI
RAID 5 Contoller (SRCZCR)(raidsrc.sys).
The second system is an intel motherboard (SE7501BR2) with the built
in RAID Controller (a320raid.sys).
Now, before you get to the "if it hurts, don't do it" line, let me
explain what happens.
I remove both lines, OemPreInstall=yes and OEMPnPDriversPath="???",
1. TimeZone is set incorrectly
2. None of my $OEM$/$1 directory structures are copied to the servers
hard drive, therefore none of my GUIRunOnce lines work.
3. The [Components], [Networking], [NetAdapters], [Identification],
[Params.Adapter1]... (ie all adapter configuration) is ignored.

FYI, This script works perfectly on a "non raid" server.

My guts are telling me that the issue may be in Intel's oemsetup.inf
or their txtsetup.oem...maybe the overwrite of a OEMPnPDriverPath ...
Any Ideas thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
