stephaniei, I cannot help with your problems, but have you run Windows System Image Manager (WSIM, part of WAIK) against your .xml files? I found it to be very useful in making changes and verifying the .xml. Good luck, John.
Hi everyone, I did post alone, but I'm sorry, I should have posted it here. I'm also sorry for the double post, but I'm desperate to get this sorted and I've tried so many different things.
I'm successfully deploying an image - although it still asks me which images to install; it doesn't add the PC to the domain and the UI language is still en-US. I got the files from this forum and edited them (I am using both: ImageUnattend and WDSClientUnattend) - but I'm sure I'm missing something simple.
This is my first time using Deployment services etc., so I'm not 100% sure where everything is. It appears to be working for the most part, because I can select an image manually and the installation continues perfectly, with no problems. But as I want to deploy this image to 500 PCs, I can't go around to each one! Also, our domain has a 'long' and 'short' name - I read somewhere on here that you should use the 'short' version, is this correct?
So, I just want it to know which image to install, add it to the domain and change the UI language, if possible.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
EDIT: I looked some more at your .xml and wonder about a couple of things: My .xml has this code and I do not get asked about the image:
I also see you have the EN-US code (0409) in several places. Perhaps it should be 0809 - please see here. In the unattend.chm is this code for joining a domain. I do not use this, so don't know if it is relavent, but please look at the unattend.chm for help.

Hope some of this helps. Oops, looks like the forum quote mechanism has messed up the formatting - sorry about that.
