Vista autounattend.xml

By mpunderw ·
I'm trying to configure an unattended install of Vista. I've created the basic autounattend.xml that Microsoft helps you build in their Windows Vista Deployment Step by Step Guide (http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista/en/library/88f80cb7-d44f-47f7-a10d-e23dd53bc3fa1033.mspx?mfr=true), and it works fine. But I wanted to do a couple of "advanced" things I can't figure out.

First I have a post install script I want to run after Vista is installed. I've gone about this a couple of ways including RunSynchronous and creating a Configuration set and neither way works. I know in XP you can put a folder in $OEM$\$1 and it will be copied the root of the C drive. I've read you can create an $OEM$ folder in the Autounattend_Files folder the Configuration set makes, but it's not copying anything over. I could run my scripts from the network, but I really wanna copy the scripts to the C and run them from there.

Second I want setup to format and use the ENTIRE C. I've read some things about setting a size for the C then extending it to include the rest of it, but that doesn't seem to work for me. A lot of people have said it's not possible but I don't believe that.
