There are a variety of custom options you can set when installing MacDrive.

Note: MacDrive 9.0.0 (and newer) only offers support for silent installation without reboot, without activation (as described below).

Silent installation with automatic restart:

Silent installation without automatic restart:

macdrive_(version number)_en_setup.exe /quiet REBOOT=ReallySuppress

Silent installation with automatic restart and automatic activation:

macdrive_(version number)_en_setup.exe /quiet AUTOMATIC_ACTIVATION_SERIAL_NUMBER=(serial number) (replace with your serial number)

Silent installation without automatic restart and with automatic activation:

macdrive_(version number)_en_setup.exe /quiet REBOOT=ReallySuppress AUTOMATIC_ACTIVATION_SERIAL_NUMBER=(serial number) (replace with your serial number)

Normal installation with automatic activation:

Notes: Replace the filename “macdrive_(version number)_en_setup.exe” with the filename of the MacDrive 8 installer you are using. These instructions are applicable to MacDrive 8 (and later).
