You can find on MSDN How to: Create and Run an Unattended Visual Studio Setup. This post focuses on unattended installation of VS 2010 product only (without SDK) along with screenshots and hints on what to avoid. Below are the steps I have followed to create a silent unattended installation script for VS 2010.
<path to VS installation folder>\setup\setup.exe /createunattend c:\VS2010Config.ini
Note: Make sure you run the \setup\setup.exe and not \setup.exe directly.
<path to VS installation folder>\setup\setup.exe /unattendfile c:\VS2010Config.ini
As you can see, the steps are pretty straightforward. Enjoy!
