INF SourceDisksNames and SourceDisksFiles Sections Example

The SourceDisksNames section of an INF file identifies the disks that contain the source files being installed. The SourceDisksFiles section identifies the source files and the source disks that contain them. Note that MIPS, Alpha, and PPC platforms are not supported by Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

Beginning with Windows XP, a SourceDisksNames section may specify a tag as well as cabinet file. For example, the following SourceDisksNames section may be used with removable or fixed media. If using removable media, the example section verifies the presence of the media by first checking for the presence of the tag. If using fixed media, the example section verifies the presence of the media by first checking for the presence of the cabinet. After verifying the presence of a cabinet, the system attempts to copy files out of the cabinet and prompts for any files it was unable to copy.
