Hey MaxXPSoft,

Please go through this autounattend.xml of mine, I have tested it in vmware, everything is fine but I had to put the PC name manually and had to select the network location as well. I want my xml to be fully unattended.

Please help me, mate.

Autounattend.xml

Thanks I would try and reply with the result soon.

Edit: Hey mate but the Computer name has no spaces so it should take computer name properly, but I had to put the computer name manually.

The first time I gave you your Autounattend.xml file working, the computer name was : <ComputerName>Win7_Vaio</ComputerName>! (post #126 updated with Team-ARC):

Try to keep the same name!

*Edit: remember you need to add for x86 and amd64.

Tested with blank space and doesn't works. All dialog boxes are displayed!

Tested successfully adding: <RegisteredOwner>nice_guy75</RegisteredOwner> at <settings pass="oobeSystem">


<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

*Edit: Autounattend.xml file attached updated with the new values (post #126)

I think you can try with: <ComputerName>Windows_7_Vaio</ComputerName>

*Edit 2: Tested and works also with Computer Name: Windows_7_Vaio

Thanks to both of you guys.

@ myselfidem, did it ask for selecting network location when you tried?

No! Fully unattended!

Only the dialog boxes for selecting the Edition x86 or amd64 and the HDD!

Great news mate, I forgot to ask did it login as administrator as well? And did you use vmware or virtual box?

Yes, you are Administrator and your account name is Administrator!

I use Oracle Sun VirtualBox.

However I think it's better to create a user account inside Group: Administrators! Like this:


<UserAccounts>
<LocalAccounts>
<LocalAccount wcm:action="add">
<Password>
<PlainText>false</PlainText>
<Value>xxxxx</Value>
</Password>
<Group>Administrators</Group>
<DisplayName>myselfidem</DisplayName>
<Name>myselfidem</Name>
</LocalAccount>
</LocalAccounts>
</UserAccounts>

It's just an advice!

Thanks for your suggestion, I would think over it. I was using vmware and if you are administrator in the host OS then you can't use Administrator's account in vmware otherwise you will end up with disabled Administrator's user account in vmware and in vmware you also have to select the network location manually.

I see that inside "Unattended Windows Setup Reference for Windows 7.chm" when a value is writed with an underscore we can't have a blank space:

Examples: Computer_name ; Registered_organization_name ; Manufacturer_name ; etc..

If we use a blank space some or all dialog boxes are displayed, even with an Autounattend.xml file complete!

But if we want add a value with blank spaces we can use a reg file, example for OEM informations:

OEM.reg


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;-------------------------------------------------------------------
; - OEM Informations (Original Equipment Manufacturer) -
;-------------------------------------------------------------------
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation]
"Logo"="C:\\Windows\\System32\\oemlogo.bmp"
"Manufacturer"="Se7en Titan™"
"SupportURL"="http://people.consolidated.net/veeger"
"Model"="Windows Se7en Titan"

There may be permission problems with what you are trying to add and remember you can't add user tweaks with this. You need to do those maybe at Firstlogoncommands

I see you posting about setacl in another post. Is that what you are tring to do?

Thanks mate, means we can use "underscores" in place of black spaces, later we can change the name with spaces using the registry?
