Hello there people,
Just wanted to be sure that the mail i sent some weeks ago(see below if it
didnt) came to the list intact.
This is a true showstopper for me, any tips or pointers would be really
When installing Win2k, the install expands the partition without problems,
but XP refuses to do the same.
Btw, "extendOemPartition" is set to yes in unattend.txt :)
