When deploying a Windows 7 image using WDS, everything is as I'd like it to be apart from having to choose the drive and format it. If I forget to do this it installs over the existing partition. I know there is a setting to wipe the HDD to be deployed to but I can't seem to find any documentation on it.

How would I define this in the answer file? What components do I need and at what stage?
