InstallTo

InstallTo specifies the disk and partition where you install the Windows image. For unattended installations, you must specify either InstallTo or InstallToAvailablePartition.

You must specify valid values for DiskID and PartitionID. If you are installing to a blank disk, you must create and format partitions with the CreatePartitions and ModifyPartitions settings.

noteNote
If you specify a location in InstallTo, do not set InstallToAvailablePartition. If InstallTo is specified, and if InstallToAvailablePartition is set to true, and if WillShowUI is set to Never, then an error is logged, and installation is terminated.
