I hope that this is the right board to post this question.

I have a WDS setup with 9 images created for different versions of Windows (2008 and 2003). I have created a number of WDS templates which will automate the selection of image and the creation of the primary partition. This works perfectly for 2008, but when pointing at a 2003 image it always displays the image selection screen and I cant get around it.

My working 2008 WDS template is
 
<?xml version="1.0" ?> 
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
<settings pass="windowsPE">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35"
language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" processorArchitecture="x86">

<InstallImage>
<ImageName>Windows 2008 Datacenter x86</ImageName>

</InstallImage>
<InstallTo>

</ImageSelection>

<Label>System</Label>

</ModifyPartition>
</ModifyPartitions>
</Disk>
</DiskConfiguration>
</component>
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35"
language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" processorArchitecture="x86">
<SetupUILanguage>
<WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>
<UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage>
</SetupUILanguage>
<UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage>
</component>
</settings>
</unattend>


and the one that does not work is identical apart from

 
               <InstallImage>
<ImageName>Windows 2003 Web x86</ImageName>
<ImageGroup>Windows 2003</ImageGroup>
<Filename>2k3webx86.wim</Filename>
</InstallImage>


Can anyone help shed any light on this one?

Thanks in advance.
