I found something:

Default setting: By default, the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program is turned off.

When Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are installed and the computer is started for the first time, the Initial Configuration Tasks interface appears, displaying a variety of tasks including Enable automatic updating and feedback. In this task, you can choose to enable the default level of automatic updating and feedback, or you can manually configure settings. If you enable automatic updating and feedback, you turn on the Customer Experience Improvement Program.

The trouble is I don't remember if I got such popup when I was creating the default image :P

Will do an annoying test then...

We can also read useful infos here:

The Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program

<CEIPEnabled>0</CEIPEnabled>

Specifies that Windows CEIP is chosen during Windows Welcome. If the user decides to skip

Windows Welcome during installation, CEIP will be opted out. The user receives no further notifications.

This is the default value.

Unable to skip the Licence window, Please see the screenshot (not from my OS as it doesn't appear in Vmware it only appears on actual machine)

Just a quick glance as I'm headed to work

Do you have a wireless connection or was it popping up on you? If not remove that entry <HideWirelessSetupInOOBE>

I do have a wifi modem and I don't want that window to appear during my installation. I think its a better idea not to remove it.

Wireless? Nice_Guy, verify for us you posted the correct picture that is not showing up. The picture you posted is the EULA that appears during Setup, which should be skipped by the SkipEula object in the WindowsPE pass. Or do you mean the EULA in OOBE (where the Wireless screen also appears) ?

I am talking about EULA only, MaxXPSoft has asked me about wireless network and I replied to his query only. I have no problem of EULA in OOBE, the window is appearing during the setup only. And yes you are right, you mean "<AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula>"?

Please see my Autounattend.xml I have posted.

HideWirelessSetupInOOBE is part of Windows Welcome so it may be triggering EULA

other than that add your key(yes I know you integrate) to see if that helps

Ok I guss there is some problem with my boot.wim, I have done some customization in the boot.wim so only it is creating trouble, I did try with with default boot.wim downloaded from official website and my xml worked perfectly (no EULA window), now I have to figure out what is forcing that EULA window to appear. I remember once I tried to integrate xml using Windows 7 toolkit that might have created the problem.

I have a related question, I have actually created a SP1 disk (captured install.wim) from RTM by reverse integration now I want to know can I use boot.wim of the SP1 OS I have downloaded from MS or I have to use the same boot.wim of RTM only?

yes unfortunately none of us know what has been done to things so we have to guess at what might be wrong with a normal installation. I didn't think boot.wim would still be influencing OOBE but apparently am wrong unless it is modded files

I would think boot.wim should be generic but I have not scoured them that much. Only for mod files I do

Yes, you can.

I tested and works fine for me, changing only install.wim customized (using sysprep and capture) inside Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 MSDN.

Works also if you keep your original Windows 7 SP0 and changing only install.wim SP1 customized (using reverse integration).

This one I have been doing since very long and yes it does work properly.

Yes, you can.

You are right, I have tried it for the first time and it did work perfectly. And I was right, there was something wrong with my boot.wim, I have changed my boot.wim from the one I have downloaded from MS and now everything is working perfectly. Most importantly "NO EULA WINDOW". And yes, I had to change the setup.exe of sources folder as well, Boot.wim and setup.exe should be from the same OS.

That's very bad idea, noone knows what gets screwed up by such awkward methods.

Why don't you just download SP1 image from official sources?
