If you are doing a DVD boot, you will name your unattend file autounattend.xml and place that on a USB stick or floppy. Can be placed in root of dvd also but you can't modify that easily and continue with install. If you are doing a network share install you name it unattend.xml and if you are doing a WDS installation, you name it imageunattend.xml.

I use autounattend.xml and place that on a floppy where you can add all passes.

Here is a simple working example to automate
your install and additional applications like your
favorite web browser etc. It uses a the "use configuration set"
option value = "true" which for some reason is not
mentioned in any documentation that I know of.
It allows you to use $oem$ folders just like XP and
works without sysprep.

Hi,

Is this still valid with windows 2008 R2 SP1 ?
I'm doing the exact same things but with no luck. See my attempt here

Do you run the Audit passes as well?

If that's the case, how does that work with only one unattend file? My understanding this far is that if you're going into audit pass via
oobeSystem|Reseal[mode=audit]
then the rest of oobeSystem pass is ignored and marked as "hasProcessed" in the cached answer file in Panther dir. When revisited next time it's ignored since it's marked as been processed?

I've tried doing everything in one file but all my goodies in oobeSystem was ignored after auditUser. If, however the audit passes are skipped, then it works with one file since no pass is revisited twice.
How does your answer file look like?
