You can use a text editor, such as Notepad, to manually create an answer file. An answer file consists of section headers, keys, and values for those keys. Note that you do not have to specify all possible keys in the answer file if the installation does not require them. Invalid key values might cause errors or faulty performance after Setup. Listing 2-4 displays an example of a manually created answer file.

Winnt.sif is the name for an answer file that is used for performing an unattended clean installation from a CD. To create a Winnt.sif file, use Setup Manager and rename the Unattend.txt file it creates to Winnt.sif. Listing 2-5 displays an example of a fully unattended Winnt.sif answer file. Note When you use Winnt.exe to perform a clean installation from a bootable CD on a computer with multiple hard disks or partitions, specify the exact location of the destination hard disk or partition to which you are installing. Add AutoPartition = 1 to the [Data] section of the Winnt.sif file to specify the location.

Customizing Components and Features
This section describes the tools you can use and the procedures you can perform to manually customize the components and features of a Windows XP Professional installation. You also have the option of using Setup Manager Wizard to customize components and features for a Windows XP Professional installation.
Adding Hardware Device Support
The following topics describe how to add hardware device support to your installation:
Mass Storage Devices Hardware Abstraction Layers Driver Signatures Plug and Play Devices
Mass Storage Devices In Windows XP Professional, Plug and Play installs most hardware devices that can be loaded later in the setup process. However, mass storage devices, such as hard disk controllers, must be properly installed for full Plug and Play support to be available during the GUI mode of Setup. For this reason, the installation of mass storage devices is handled differently from the installation of other hardware devices. To add Small Computer Systems Interface (SCSI) devices during Text-mode Setup (before full Plug and Play support is available), you must provide a Txtsetup.oem file that describes how Setup needs to install the particular SCSI device. For more information about Txtsetup.oem, see Windows Hardware and Driver Central at http://www.microsoft.com/whdc. To install a mass storage device 1. In the distribution folder, create the Textmode folder in the \$OEM$ folder. 2. Copy the following files into the Textmode folder. These files are available from the device vendor. In the following list, replace Driver with the appropriate driver name:
Driver.sys Driver.dll Driver.inf Driver.cat Txtsetup.oem
Some drivers, such as SCSI miniport drivers, might not include a DLL file.

Note
A catalog file, for example Driver.cat, might not be required.
Most SCSI drivers do not ship with dynamic-link library files (DLLs). Catalog files (.cat) are not used during Text-mode Setup. The required files are specified in the Txtsetup.oem file. Make sure that all the files listed in Txtsetup.oem appear in the textmode directory and that the files are specified in the [OEMBootFiles] section of the Unattend.txt file. You must also copy the driver files to the PnPdrvrs location that you specified for the OemPnPDriversPath key in the answer file. For example:
\$OEM$\$1\PnPdrvrs\Storage
You must include a catalog file, for example, Driver.cat, with the mass storage device drivers if the catalog file is listed in Txtsetup.oem. For more information about catalog files, see the Windows Hardware and Driver Central at http://www.microsoft.com /whdc. 3. In the answer file, create a [MassStorageDrivers] section, and include the driver entries that you want to include. If you are using two mass storage devices, one to control the hard disk and the other to control the CD-ROM drive, a possible entry in the [MassStorageDrivers] section is shown in the following example:
Adaptec 2940 = OEM" "Adaptec 2940 = retail"
Information for this section can be obtained from the Txtsetup.oem file, which is provided by the hardware manufacturer. 4. In the answer file, create an [OEMBootFiles] section, and include a list of the files in the \$OEM$\Textmode folder. A possible entry to the [OEMBootFiles] section is shown in the following example:
