    i have used the setup manager and created the winnt.sif and this works fine except that i want to access the formatting options (like ntfs quick,fat32 etc) available in normal xp installlation.
    help :confused:

    The winnt.sif file should be a plain text file, just open it with notepad and look around for the settings you want.

    Try this under the [Data} header look for
    autopartition = 1
    and set it to
    autopartition = 0
    or add it if it is not there.

    Well I'll keep an eye out for anything that sounds like what your looking for. I don't if you tried this one or not but it still doesn't seem to really answer your question.
