Setting Tableau Desktop's repository location during installation process is not possible.
Repository location can only be set post-installation via
File > File Repository Location
. For more information, see
Changing the my Tableau Repository Location
Currently, Tableau Desktop does not feature the ability to set the repository during the installation process. This includes both normal and silent installations.
To voice your support for the future implementation of such a feature, please vote on the following idea:
Allow quiet install process of Desktop to set default Repository location
