WDS unattend WinPE [solved]

2 posts in this topic

I have created an unattend.xml file to unattend my boot image. The problem is that I have two boot images, one for booting up to select an install image and another one for capturing and creating an install image. When I put the unattend.xml file in RemoteInstall\WDSClientUnattend it automatically choses one of my boot images so I no longer have the possibility to choose. The one that is automatically chosen is the capture image.

When I remove the unattend.xml file from the folder the option to choose boot image is back.

In the xml file there is an option to automatically select an install image, but thats not the case here. I can't find an option to NOT select a boot image.

Here's my file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

- <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">

- <settings pass="windowsPE">

Please remove section as below. The section pointed to installation image without choose boot image.

- <ImageSelection>

<WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>

- <InstallImage>

<ImageName />

<ImageGroup />

<Filename />

</InstallImage>
