OOBE section being ignored in answer file

2 posts in this topic

Hello again everyone, I'm back with more questions!

So I've gotten my unattended Vista most of the way up and running. I still need to apply some updates and do some customizations (which I'll probably be asking about later :)), but I'm having a bit of a problem with my answer file and I'm hoping someone can help.

It's ignoring the OOBE section, specifically <ProtectYourPC> and <NetworkLocation>. The network dialogue pops up after install finishes, and when I go to Windows Update, Automatic Updates is disabled :(

Here's my autounattend.xml:

Everything looks good to me but it's ignoring those two entries :(

Any help would be immensely appreciated.

IN the future, attach a modified XML to your post. Modify it by taking out the product key.

If you ran the validator in WSIM, you would have seen the following:

1. The 'WillShowUI' element is invalid - The value 'onerror' is invalid according to its datatype 'WillShowUIType' - The Enumeration constraint failed.

2. Setting SkipMachineOOBE is deprecated in the Windows image.
