Different Unattended XML for Each Editions?

3 posts in this topic

Hello! My works requires to run two different editions of Windows 7, Professional and Enterpise (in both 32 and 64 bit). My question is, do I need to create seperate unattended xml file for each edition before running Sysprep? Thanks

If your options are the same, one file should work. In your case, you could potentially have 2 different keys, which might be an issue. I use one file for both my x86 and x64 installs. I did have to create one for each, and then I merged them. Does that help?

Here is a quick example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
<settings pass="specialize">
<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">
<ProductKey>XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX</ProductKey>
<TimeZone>Eastern Standard Time</TimeZone>
<DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet>false</DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet>
</component>
</settings>
<settings pass="specialize">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<ProductKey>XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX</ProductKey>
<DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet>false</DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet>
<TimeZone>Eastern Standard Time</TimeZone>
</component>
</settings>
<cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:v:/slipstream/windowssevenenterprisecombined/sources/install.wim#ENTERPRISEX86" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
</unattend>

Thank you for the information. We use KMS so I won't need to enter the product key in the XML. All the settings/options will be the same accross both editions and both x86/x64. So I will test it out with just one XML file without merging anything.
