It is used to performs an installation or upgrade to a product in the Windows Server family. If we have hardware that is compatible with a product in the Windows Server family, we can run winnt at a Windows 3.X or MS-DOS command prompt.

winnt [/s:SourcePath] [/t:TempDrive] [/u:AnswerFile][/udf:ID [,UDB_file]] [/r:Folder][/rx:Folder][/e:Command][/a]


 Parameter  Description
/s:SourcePath Specifies the source location of the operating system files. The location must be a full path of the form X:\[Path] or \\Server\Share[\Path].
/t: TempDrive
Directs Setup to place temporary files on the specified drive and to install the server operating system on that drive. If you do not specify a location, Setup attempts to locate a drive for you.
/u: AnswerFile Performs an unattended Setup using an answer file. The answer file provides answers to some or all of the prompts that the end user normally responds to during Setup. If you use /u, you must also use /s.
/udf: ID [,UDB_file] Indicates an identifier (ID) that Setup uses to specify how a Uniqueness Database (UDB) file modifies an answer file (see /u). The UDB overrides values in the answer file, and the identifier determines which values in the UDB file are used. If no UDB_file is specified, Setup prompts you to insert a disk that contains the $Unique$.udb file.
/r: Folder Specifies an optional folder to be installed. The folder remains after Setup finishes.
/rx: Folder Specifies an optional folder to be copied. The folder is deleted after Setup finishes.
/e: Command Specifies a command to be carried out just before the final phase of Setup.
/a Enables accessibility options.
/? Displays help at the command prompt.
