Use the system image manager, manually creating the Win7 unattend.xml answer file is near impossible. Just use the install.wim from your install media as the reference image when asked.

There is a good blog here with most of the info you would be looking for.

For the domain join you either need to pre-create the computer account in AD and the provided account has rights to join, or supply the OU the machine will be created in and the provided account has rights to create the object and join to it.

When we are doing deployments of 200+ machines at a time, creating the objects in AD is not the preferable option. Is there not a scripting option out there?

If all of the machines are going into the same OU you won't have a problem, or if you have a staging OU and then move them from there to their permanent OU. Otherwise if you change the <machineobjectOU> value before the machine attempts to do the join you'll be fine. I do this right after applying the image to the machine before rebooting. If you are using Ghost version 11.x you should be able to do the same thing.
