  1. Thanks to all. I should have specified that I run DISM on my W7 host and W10 on VM. I have DLed and installed ADK and got a late copy of DISM and WSIM. Thanks again and enjoy, John.
  2. Can I DL only DISM for W10 1511? What a mess!~ Thanks and enjoy, John.
  3. Thanks, Tripredacus for the instant reply. I will give it a try soon. Enjoy, John. EDIT: I could not get this to work. Using WSIM (10.0.10586.0), first it says NetworkLocation is deprecated and only allowed Home, Work and Other values. I tried Home and Other (Public equivalent, I think) and still got the dialog. The last time, I just ignored it and will see what that did. Since CEIP did not seem to do anything, what can be used to turn off most/all of the Privacy invading junk? Thanks, John.
  4. How do I get rid of this prompt? I set the RouterDiscoveryEnabled to true but still got the prompt. Any ideas? Thanks and enjoy, John.
  5. It would seem few people are interested in W10 Unattended install. The "The app can't open problem" is caused by UAC being turned off during install. I think it is this line of code: <EnableLUA>false</EnableLUA>This code causes my install to hang: <CEIPEnabled>0</CEIPEnabled>and produce this message after getting rid of a half formed error message: What a mess W10 is. Enjoy, John. EDIT: When I let WSIM set the CEIP value the install went fine. I had not included some needed code. "Feedback frequency" (Privacy) was still set to "Automatically" and not "Never" as I expected. To use the "EnableLUA" value, after the install open the UAC screen, press OK and reboot - no more messages.
  6. Great, Kenne76, thanks for reporting your success. Enjoy, John.
  7. Here is my sanitized Unattend.xml file. Enjoy, John. EDIT: WSIM flags the disable of CEIP as invalid, so I removed it and will test tomorrow (Tuesday). SANIW10Unattend.xml
  8. Thanks, paradox355. I think I ran across your reference but expected to find something closer to what I am used to seeing. I will spend some time learning from you link. I hope to find a document that explains all the unattend.xml commands. Enjoy, John.
  9. Thanks, Tripredacus. I am using Win10_1511_English_x64.iso DLed from the link here. It does contain an install.wim file (not .esd). The build is 10586.00. Enjoy, John.
  10. Thanks, Kenne76. I suggest you run WSIM (Windows System Image Manager). Since it is not formatted, it is almost impossible to read - even one xml line per line would be better than what you posted. Your product key is no good, of course. There are install keys available for the version of W10 you are using. Google can find it for you. I think the Media Creation Tool ISOs contain an install.esd not install.wim. I do not know if you can do an unattended install on it. This post has links to ISO files containing wim files. Enjoy, John.
  11. Thanks, kmaheshkumar, I have run WSIM and fixed the problems it found. I am only installing the x64 version and will provide the file after I sanitize it - probably tomorrow. Enjoy, John. EDIT: I am curious to know why I cannot signout of the forum. Anybody????????????????
  12. Kenne76, I suspect this means that there is no install.wim file in your ISO. Where did you get your ISO? It can be opened with an extractor application (I use 7-zip) to see the files/folders in it. Enjoy, John. EDIT: It looks like your XML file has a number of problems. I suggest you install the ISO directly by booting it.
  13. Using a modified W7 unattend xml file I have been testing installs on VM (VMware Player). First I installed the ISO directly and had no problems. Then booting a W7 x64 WinPE I did a flat install with the modified W7 unattended file. It completed and mostly worked, to my surprise. I cannot run many W10 functions (eg, Display settings) without getting the following message: I am running a local account created in the xml file during install. It is an administrator account but not the Administrator account. I enable the Administrator account and get the same error. Any ideas? I can sanitize and attach my unattended.xml file if needed. Install is very slow compared to W7 (maybe it is VMware). There is "Antimalware Service Executable" taking CPU often. Can I get rid of it - how? I did find that "Setup Complete" does not work. In W7 I created a restore point in a script but it fails in W10 with a strange error. I went in to manually create one and could not enable it. Of course, I have not activated Windows. Is this the problem? I cannot find the equivalent of the W7 unattend.chm for W10. Is it the same as W8 and where can I find it? Thanks much for any comments and help. Enjoy, John. EDIT: In order to have the "Turn on system protection" button not greyed out is that at least one disk needs to be selected in the previous screen.
  14. URL for KB3021952 in the x64 list is http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/5/6/05647B0E-4144-49C1-867F-641CEF5AA017/IE11-Windows6.1-KB3021952-x86.msu, an x86 update. Enjoy, John. EDIT: Correct URL: http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/6/7/367999BC-88CA-44CE-8AF3-E10D55DAD2E1/IE11-Windows6.1-KB3021952-x64.msu EDIT,II: KB3023607 is a bad update killing Cisco's AnyConnect VPN. I cannot find the update for DL, so looks like MS has withdrawn it, except for delivering it via WUD.
  15. Thanks, Ponch. I'll do some testing with your input. Thanks, also, Tripredacus. Enjoy, John. EDIT: I see 64 and 32 bit DLLs in the System32 and sysWOW64 folders, respectively. Waterfox browser (x64) points to System32 and Firefox (x86) points to sysWOW64.
