I. Introduction

    The push installation of Windows* XP is achieved by setting the 
    options in the Unattend.txt file.

II. Setting up an Install Directory on the File Server
    The server must be setup with a distribution folder that holds the required 
    Windows XP files and which clients can reach when connecting via TCP/IP or IPX. 
    For illustration purposes, the examples in this readme use the network share 

    To prepare the distribution folder:

      	1. Copy the \I386 folder from the Windows XP CD to Z:\PUSHXP.
    	   Use Explorer, Winfile or XCOPY in order to maintain the same 
           directory structure as on the CD.
        2. Copy Unattend.txt from the Intel media (found in \PUSH\XP)
           into the shared directory Z:\PUSHXP\i386. Make sure that Unattend.txt 
           includes your customizations.

	3. Create the driver install directory structure and copy the driver files to it.

           Make folders beneath the new \i386 as follows:
           From the files provided with the Intel adapter run (from the makedisk directory):
		"makedisk Z:\PUSHXP\i386\$OEM$\$1\Drivers\Net\E100B XP"
           Alternative: run "makedisk\makedisk a:\ XP" where a: is the floppy and then 
           copy the contents of the floppy into Z:\PUSHXP\i386\$OEM$\$1\Drivers\Net\e100b 

           Note: The PUSHCOPY.BAT file provided with the drivers in the \PUSH directory
                 will copy the appropriate files for the installation.
                 Example: "d:\PUSH\pushcopy Z:\PUSHXP XP"
                 The above command will create the $OEM$ directory structure and copy all the
                 necessary files to install the driver and PROSetII.  However, PROSetII will
                 not be installed unless the line:
;    Command1="c:\drivers\net\e100b\proset2\setup /s"
                 is uncommented from unattend.txt.

III. Deployment Methods
    1. Make sure that you have a copy of a network bootable MS-DOS floppy that will 
       connect to the Z:\PUSHXP\i386 directory and use it to boot the destination
       system (the one you want to push install to) and connect to this shared 
       network directory.

    2. Run the command: (assumes prompt at \\Server\PUSHXP\i386):  
         winnt /u:z:\unattend.txt /s:z: /t:c     
              (where z: equals mapped drive)

    Important Note:
	In the above procedure, setup runs the installation in unattended mode and also 
        detects the plug and play network adapters.  All driver files are copied from the
        shared directory to the target system directories and installation of the OS and 
        Network Adapters continues without user intervention.

IV. Alternate Deployment Methods (RIS/PXE)

    For deployment suggestions using a Windows XP RIS server and PXE boot see the 
    Boot Agent User's Guide.

    To configure and install the driver set on the RIS Server see the knowledge base 
    article Q246184 on Microsoft's support site at:

    General information on how to preinstall an OEM driver set for Windows XP can be 
    found in knowledge base article Q254078

V.  Microsoft documentation for unattended installations of Windows

    For a complete description of the parameters supported in Unattend.txt
    see the DEPLOY.CHM document in the DEPLOY.CAB cabinet file on the 
    Windows XP CD.  To obtain the document, use Internet Explorer 5.0 or
    greater to open DEPLOY.CAB in the \SUPPORT\TOOLS directory on the CD.

    Other documents and utilities in the DEPLOY.CAB file provide details
    and tools for setting up a variety of unattended installation methods.

A sample Unattend.txt file for Windows* XP Professional:


;  This switch prevents the user setup dialog from running when XP
;  starts for the first time.



    ; command to install the drivers from the driver media
    Command0="c:\drivers\net\e100b\w2kupdat.exe -ic:\drivers\net\e100b\neti557x.inf"
    ; command to install PROSetII - uncomment to install PROSetII after push install
;    Command1="c:\drivers\net\e100b\proset2\setup /s"

    JoinWorkGroup = Workgroup
;  *Use the following for a domain installation
;    JoinDomain=DMI2
;    CreateComputerAccountInDomain=Yes
;    DomainAdmin=Installer
;    DomainAdminPassword=install

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
