Creating an automated XP install disc

By shintorojin ·
Greetings all,

I would like to create an automated XP install disc which will automatically partition my HP Pavillion dv6000z Laptop Leaving an unpartitioned portion of the hdd for the Quickplay direct setup as well as integrating said setup program into the windows installation process.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible and how i would go about doing this?

Thanks in advance,

at the program NLite This will do most of what you want. I haven't used it in over a year, so I am not sure of the partitioning options, although that shouldn't be too hard to implement.

Hey bwilmot,
Thanks, yeah I'm using nlite for the disc but it doesn't have an option to run an outside installer within the windows installation or the partitioning bit I've been searching on google for automatic partitioning but i can't find anything that i can use specifically in this instance
If anyone maybe stumbles on a guide or something, let me know. pleeeeease

Okay so like i realise i was probably a tad vague in my question. So here goes again.

My HP pavillion dv6000z has a program called quickplay direct which installs on a seperate partition on the hard drive to be run when you use the quickplay function keys.

What I'd like to know is if anyone can explain to me how the installer automatically partitions the hard drive.
As in i leave the empty space and it uses it without my inteference?

Thanks in advance,

Basically older versions work with XP and create a lynux type partition on the last partition of the drive. It must be a primary partition. Newer versions use a stripped down version of Windows and work with Vista. Google search for quickplay direct install will shed a little more light on the subject.
