What's the mistake? - unattend.xml
Hi,

I was using the SIM-Tool to try to model a unattend.xml -
automatically wiping disk 0 - and let the setup create 2 partitions:

Disk 0:
- 1 active primary
- 1 logical in an extended space - using the remaining size for disk 0


Setup comes up with: "Couldn't extend a partition on disk 0....not
supported for this partition or volume". Error 0x80300024.

As I don't know the size of the harddisk before setup, I can'T specify
the size of the logical/extended partition.

What's wrong?

******

RE: What's the mistake? - unattend.xml
Hello Charlie,
quick look at this,
Are you formatting the extended volume or the logical drive.
I would think you would format the logical drive, but the numbering appears
to be the extended drive
Thanks,
Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
