So I made an Unattend.xml file with the WAIK.

I have tried putting in several places of the DVD
* In the root
* In sources
* In $oem$\1
* In sources\$oem$\1

I have also tried to rename it to AutoUnattend.xml

I have tried editing the autorun.inf file so that
open="setup.exe /Unattend:Unattend.xml"
and
open=setup.exe /Unattend:Unattend.xml

I am running out of places to put the **** file :)

Can anyone tell Exactly where to put the file on the DVD in order to make it work.

Kind Regards

DVD:\AutoUnattend.xml should do the trick... Make sure you boot from the DVD, as far as I know it doesn't work when you start setup from Windows...

I am booting up from the DVD - by mounting it in a virtual machine.
Is there anything else that can be wrong - because I have tried that many time

I tried again - and now it actually worked - I must have been real close before but never really hit the right place.
Thanks for your help :)

Autounattend.xml and Unatend.xml serve different pourposes on a Windows installation.

Glad to know you figure it out already.
