Windows 95 Setup Switches

/? A list of the official Setup switches.
/c Instructs setup not to load the Smart Drive disk cache.
/d Setup will not use your existing Windows configuration.
/id Skips the disk-space check.
/ig Allows Setup to run on some older Gateway and Micron computers with an early BIOS.
/ih Runs ScanDisk in the foreground.
/im Skips the memory check.
/in Runs Setup without the Network Setup module.
/iq Does not check for cross-linked files.
/ir Tells Windows Setup not to attempt to write to the boot sector. This should only be used when the anti-virus protection in CMOS cannot be disabled. Your computer will not reboot at the end of setup. You must boot using the Startup disk, SYS your hard drive, then boot normally to allow Setup to finish.
/is Does not run ScanDisk.
/it Setup will not check for the presence of "dirty" or "deadly" terminate-and-stay-resident programs (TSR's) that are known to cause problems with Windows Setup.
/l (L) Loads the Logitech mouse driver. Useful for Logictech series C mouse.
/n Run Setup without a mouse.
/nm Bypass the internal processor detection to allow Win95/98 to install on machines that do not have the minimum hardware requirements.
/p switches These switches can be used alone, or in groups. For example, you could type: setup /p f or you could type setup /p f;t:temp;a. Use the semi-colon (;) between switches
/p a Setup uses only Safe Detection of hardware. All hardware devices may not be detected properly.
/p b Prompts you before a detection module is called so you can step through detection modules manually.
/P f Creates a new Registry and ignores the current Registry. Note the space between the P and f.
/p g={N} Controls how verbose the built-in progress bar is. At maximum level (3), it sows all the resources of the detected devices along with the progress bar.
/p i Tells Setup not to report the existence of a Plug and Play BIOS. Useful on systems that have a PNP BIOS that is not reported in Machine.inf.
/p j Tells Setup to undo the results of the "Setup /p i" switch.
/p n Enables No Recovery mode. This switch turns off the Windows Setup recovery mechanism. It prevents the creating of Detcrash.log, and the "Safe Recovery" will not show up after a hardware crash during Setup.
/p p Enables performance logging. It writes performance timing information to the Detlog.txt file.
/T:TMP Specifies the directory where Setup will copy the temporary files. If the directory doesn't exist, Setup will create it. Any existing files in the directory will be deleted.
