  1. Hi,

    is there a log that will be written when unattend.txt is applied during
    setup. my unattend.txt is not applied as expected and I want to find out
    what went wrong.

  2. Hello Gunter,

    If you start a destination computer from a product CD and the answer file
    is on a floppy disk, you must name the answer file Winnt.sif. Setup will
    then detect the answer file on the disk without user input.

    Best regards

  4. Hi Meinolf,

    i am more looking for setup log information that is written during the
    unattended setup. Is there a debug log that will be written and which I can
    use to troubleshoot the application of my unattend.txt file.

  7. Hello Gunter,

    Here it is,

    Hello Gunter,
    The primary log files should be the setupact.log or the setuplog.txt.
    The unattended file should be picked up and copied to the
    \windows\system32\$winnt$.inf during setup ( product keys, usernames and
    passwords are deleted from this file)
