  1. Hello, I've been working on automating my Windows 8 and haven't been able to find information regarding the "Use Express Settings" Section of OOBE, I'd really like to automate this step so my install is able to get to Metro/Desktop to install the silent Applications. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh825039.aspx I've read the above link and not found any extra options to work with the new Windows 8 features in OOBE. Here is my working AutoUnattend.xml in case anyone is interested in one that "nearly" works properly (just lacking Auto OOBE stuff). <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <SetupUILanguage> <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage> </SetupUILanguage> <InputLocale>en-US</InputLocale> <UserLocale>en-US</UserLocale> <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage> <SystemLocale>en-US</SystemLocale> </component> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <UserData> <AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula> <ProductKey> <Key>XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX</Key> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> </ProductKey> <Organization>Home</Organization> <FullName>Computer</FullName> </UserData> </component> </settings> <settings pass="oobeSystem"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <AutoLogon> <Enabled>true</Enabled> <LogonCount>1</LogonCount> <Username>Administrator</Username> </AutoLogon> <FirstLogonCommands> <SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add"> <Description>Post Setup OEM</Description> <Order>100</Order> <CommandLine>cmd /c %WINDIR%\Setup\Scripts\FirstLogon.cmd</CommandLine> </SynchronousCommand> </FirstLogonCommands> <OOBE> <HideEULAPage>true</HideEULAPage> <NetworkLocation>Home</NetworkLocation> <ProtectYourPC>1</ProtectYourPC> <HideOnlineAccountScreens>true</HideOnlineAccountScreens> <HideLocalAccountScreen>true</HideLocalAccountScreen> <HideWirelessSetupInOOBE>true</HideWirelessSetupInOOBE> </OOBE> <TimeZone>Tasmania Standard Time</TimeZone> <UserAccounts> <LocalAccounts> <LocalAccount wcm:action="add"> <Description>Default Administrator Account</Description> <DisplayName>Administrator</DisplayName> <Group>Administrators</Group> <Name>Administrator</Name> </LocalAccount> </LocalAccounts> </UserAccounts> </component> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <InputLocale>en-AU</InputLocale> <SystemLocale>en-AU</SystemLocale> <UILanguage>en-AU</UILanguage> <UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback> <UserLocale>en-AU</UserLocale> </component> </settings> <settings pass="specialize"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="NonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <ComputerName>PCNAME</ComputerName> </component> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Deployment" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <RunSynchronous> <RunSynchronousCommand wcm:action="add"> <Order>3</Order> <Description>Enable FirstLogon As Admin</Description> <Path>reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers" /v "%WINDIR%\Setup\Scripts\FirstLogon.cmd" /t REG_SZ /d "RUNASADMIN" /f</Path> </RunSynchronousCommand> <RunSynchronousCommand wcm:action="add"> <Order>4</Order> <Description>Comp Flags for setupcomplete.cmd</Description> <Path>reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers" /v "%WINDIR%\Setup\Scripts\setupcomplete.cmd" /t REG_SZ /d RUNASADMIN /f</Path> </RunSynchronousCommand> <RunSynchronousCommand wcm:action="add"> <Description>Enable Admin Account</Description> <Order>5</Order> <Path>net user administrator /active:yes</Path> </RunSynchronousCommand> </RunSynchronous> </component> </settings> <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:f:/build8/win8x64/sources/install.wim#Windows 8 Pro" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" /> </unattend> It would also be nice to disable the OOBE Tutorial, I've seen it once now and think I've figured out how to use windows 8 so if anyone knows how to bypass the Customize Settings section that has been added to Windows 8? I just want to use/set it to Express Settings by default not have that screen stop Windows from continuing to boot until I pick something, silent until the desktop/Metro.
