Windows 7 unattended alternated to targetpath and winnt /t: option.

hello,

I am during a Windows 7 unattended installed but cannot find the alternate parameter for TargetPath that I use in Windows XP, is there one. Next, I like to redirect my Windows 7 install directory \Windows to a different patition not the boot partition as I did in Windows XP where I used the winnt /t: option to specify the install partition. I am not talking about the Dual boot for Windows 7, XP and VIsta. this is putting \windows directory on the boot partition which I do not want.

Please, can someone help if there a way to do this. I

I use both vlite and WAIK. I build my unattended.xml using WAIK but could not find an option that is like "TargetPath" as in XP unattend.txt. Nor could I find an option like "winnt /t:" that allow me to redirect where the define "TargetPath" can be install or put on what drive and not the boot drive.

I am not sure if anyone understand what I am trying to do. If you need more clarification ask and I will try to explain it in a differ way.
