Instructions for Windows NT 4.x Unattended Install (Push) ========================================================== The main objective of the Push Installation is to get the client properly connected to the Windows NT server before the installation begins using the NDIS2 driver, and to keep the same client connected using the NDIS4 driver after the Windows NT Workstation is installed without any end user action. The main difficulty is that the list of supported adapters on the Windows NT 4.0 CD-ROM is restricted and thus special steps must be performed to update the Installation source files and modify the scripts to automate the process (for the adapters not on the list). The main steps of the process are: 1. Create a Network Installation Startup disk from the Windows NT Server and modify it for your adapter. 2. Create a shared directory for the Windows NT Workstation Installation files on the Windows NT Server. 3. Modify the UNATTEND.TXT installation script to automate the procedure and add the proper adapter installation and configuration information. The sample UNATTEND.TXT file provided below shows how to override default registry parameters for the adapter in the [E100BParameters] section. Override parameters should not be used unless the default parameters will not work properly for a specific installation. The sample parameters are commented out. 4. Integrate the adapter driver files into the Windows NT installation source files. 5. Perform the Unattended Setup booting with the prepared setup disk from the client system. The Procedure: 1. Prepare a Windows NT 4.0 server: a) Create a folder on the server's hard disk for the installation files (e.g., "NT40.INS"). Make this folder shared (e.g., with shared name "NT40.INS"). b) Create a user (e.g., "USERID" with a password "password") and granted read and view rights for the NT40.INS folder. 2. Use a CD-ROM drive at the Windows NT server and copy the i386 folder with Windows NT 4.0 installation files to the shared folder NT40.INS on this server (e.g., using the NT Explorer). 3. Create / Modify the installation answer file UNATTEND.TXT as required by your specific system and desired Windows NT configurations. Note that UNATTEND.TXT may be read-only and may need to be made write-able before editing (e.g., attrib -r unattend.txt). A sample UNATTEND.TXT file with comments is included at the end of this document. The best place to put this file is in the root of your install disk, but the real requirement is just to specify the full path to this file in the AUTOEXEC.BAT for the WINNT command (see 6b) and 6m) below). 4. Create the \E100B directory: NT40.INS\i386\$OEM$\Net\E100B. 5. Copy driver installation files: Xcopy the Intel Configuration and Drivers Disk to the proper place under Adapter Device Driver folder (NT40.INS\i386\$OEM$\Net\E100B folder on the Windows NT server). This enables the installation program to find the same file structure as on the Drivers disk. Be sure to use the /s /e switches on xcopy. 6. On the Windows NT server, prepare the Microsoft Client Installation disk using the Windows NT Network Client Administrator: a) Prepare a system diskette (e.g., DOS 6.22: format a: /s). Do not use the Windows NT system disk. b) Copy UNATTEND.TXT from \NT40.INS\i386 to the diskette as specified in 3) above (preferably to the root (a:\)). c) Use the Windows NT Administrative Tools (Common), start Network Client Administrator and choose "Make Network Installation Startup Disk". d) Set "Existing Path" to use the previously installed software for MS Client or, if it is the first time, create the shared directory on the server's hard drive, using the Windows NT 4.0 Server CD-ROM as a source (e.g., by copying from \client on the CD-ROM to c:\client). e) Choose "Network Client v3.0 for MS-DOS and Windows". f) Choose any of the Network Adapters from the list (e.g., NE2000 compatible). g) Set Computer name, User name, Domain and Network protocol when prompted. h) Select OK and wait while files are copied to the disk. i) Copy the proper ndis2 dos driver (E100B.DOS) to this disk in the \NET directory. E100B.DOS can be found in \DOS on the Intel Configuration and Driver Disk. j) Modify A:\NET\SYSTEM.INI : netcard = E100B.DOS k) Modify A:\NET\PROTOCOL.INI : drivername = E100B$ l) Add a line: CACHEFLUSH = 1 just after the "drivername = E100B$" line. m) Verify or modify A:\AUTOEXEC.BAT to have the following commands: NET USE W: \\PST\NT40.INS W:\i386\WINNT /s:W:\i386 /u:a:\unattend.txt Note that W is an example for the logical drive mapped to the share on the Windows NT server. n) Remove the invocation of setup.exe from A:\AUTOEXEC.BAT. 7) Boot up your DOS client with the disk prepared above installed. After connecting to the network: a) Input "USERID" as a User name when prompted. b) Input "password" as a password when prompted. OR c) Modify the NET START line in the AUTOEXEC.BAT to NET LOGON USERID PASSWORD /YES Sample Templates: 1) PROTOCOL.INI [network.setup] version=0x3110 netcard=ms$ne2clone,1,MS$NE2CLONE,1 transport=ms$ndishlp,MS$NDISHLP transport=ms$netbeui,MS$NETBEUI lana0=ms$ne2clone,1,ms$netbeui lana1=ms$ne2clone,1,ms$ndishlp [ms$ne2clone] drivername = E100B$ CACHEFLUSH = 1 ; CACHEFLUSH line is required ONLY IF NDIS2 does not shut down ; properly ;INTERRUPT=3 ;IOBASE=0x300 ;SlotNumber=1 [protman] drivername=PROTMAN$ PRIORITY=MS$NDISHLP [MS$NDISHLP] drivername=ndishlp$ BINDINGS=ms$ne2clone [ms$netbeui] drivername=netbeui$ SESSIONS=10 NCBS=12 BINDINGS=ms$ne2clone LANABASE=0 2.
