Win2k unattended install with 2 HDD's

I need to create an unattended install build for machines that have two hard drives.

When the install gets to the GUI phase it can't find the CD ROM as Win2k has pushed it to E:

Is there a way of setting the CD ROM to use a single drive letter(say Z:) all the way through the build and continue to use Z: once completed.

(PS: I know how to set the drive letter manually during DOS phase and via the GUI, what I need to know is, is there a way to di it during the unattended install)

I'dalso like to fin out if there's a way to format drive with NTFS in unattended mode.

Win2k unattended install with 2 HDD's

by TWLAAAS In reply to Win2k unattended install ...

This may not be the right answer but if you unplug the the second hard drive and then install Win2K it will install. After the install on the first drive you may shut down and plug in the second drive upon booting up it should identify the second hard drive (if cmos is set to auto detect for drives) as \ and bumps your CD Rom drive letter to E. This is kind of a manual way to do it but it worked fine. Just trying to help!
