How to ask for setup path at installation?

Post by travma » Mon Nov 30, 2015 6:21 am

Is there a way to ask the user for some variables like the installation path and/or some other installation paths (or options) at the text mode installation time of Windows XP besides to pre-modified the whole xp setup with nlite?

Not during installation, no. But you can create your own winnt.sif answer file without nLite.

Thanks for the quick answer.
So, is there any other third party install procedure or a program who will do the text mode setup but with more flexibility?
