From ISO 3166-1 : http://www.iso.org/i...d_code_elements

This should cover Location and Language:

<InputLocale>en-AU</InputLocale>
<SystemLocale>en-AU</SystemLocale> 
<UILanguage>en-AU</UILanguage> 
<UserLocale>en-AU</UserLocale>

I have also tried that in all available passes however always defaults to en-US?
Hope you track that one down.

Thanks. After a bit more googling I found the Input Locale for AU. I don't know if <InputLocale>0c09:00000409</InputLocale> is the same as <InputLocale>en-AU</InputLocale>, anyways:

<component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="amd64" 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>0c09:00000409</InputLocale>
			<SystemLocale>en-AU</SystemLocale>
			<UILanguage>en-AU</UILanguage>
			<UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback>
			<UserLocale>en-AU</UserLocale>
		</component>

How to customize Date and Time format is still undetermined. Anybody have a clue?

For Inout locale i had to use <InputLocale>0001042f</InputLocale> because <InputLocale>es-ES</InputLocale> or even <InputLocale>es-MX</InputLocale> never worked for me since Vista came out.

For the other regional settings maybe you can use registry tweaks or read the WAIK docs. I remember seeing some info there but i'm not sure as to what extent you can modify date and time formats.

I do agree something that was not overcome since Vistas inception I'm now to believe. Like McoreD I have used every combination available in the passes to get the Au to work. Always falls back to en-US.

Maybe trying to not set the fallback language to <UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback> gets yours to work.

Just leave it empty in WAIK or delete in the XML file.

My input works even in Windows 7 XML file, but I'm trying to set the TAPI settings from the XML file but I get an error that they can't be set and the installation aborts.

Everything went fine for last night's install:

<component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="amd64" 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>0c09:00000409</InputLocale>
			<SystemLocale>en-AU</SystemLocale>
			<UILanguage>en-AU</UILanguage>
			<UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback>
			<UserLocale>en-AU</UserLocale>
		</component>

except the Date Formats.

These, I still have to do manually:

yyyy-MM-dd
HH:mm:ss

Are there any Autounattend.xml settings for these? I went through the WAIK's Help file but didn't see anything. So I guess there can be a registry hack for it.

Hello McoreD,

Did you find any way to define date and time format in Unattended.XML file (answer file)? If not, how did you over come this?

Thank you

Regards,
Saravanan

It is not an option in Autounattend.xml, but you can still script it. If you have in your FirstLogonCommands, you can use intl.cpl and an XML file to set the date format.

Here's an example of the XML itself:
