Unhappy winXP unattended installation prob...

I am trying to installing a winXP using a bootdisk for unattended installation. I made a bootdisk, copied winnt.sif and winnt.bat to floppy and edited the autoexec.bat to call the winnt.bat but it doesnt work, it just appeared "The program cannot be run on DOS mode".

Did i lack something...?

in a situation like this...you have to look at all facets of the problem...how old is your hard drive?...it may be damaged and old...it's situations like this that I reccomend constant backup of files and folders...because, i reccoment to completely format your hard drive and reinstall windows over repairing the installation...because, problems like this are bound to arise again...also...windows boot disks are very fragile so i reccomend going to a boot disk site and remaking the boot disks...one last thing, make sure that your windows disk isn't scratched
