Hi everyone,

I am trying to create my unattended xml file with the Windows ADk but I am having a little bit of trouble I can’t get past the partitioning screen and there aren’t any errors in the windows system manager. I have attached a copy of my unatened xml if you could tell me what I am doing wrong I would appreciate it.

Thanks for your time.

Corey

You already have an extend in ModifyPartitions, so that should be sufficient.

You can find more info on the Unattend files here:

Again, change the Extend in CreatePartitions to False and add a Size. Change the Extend in ModifyPartition back to True.

What kind of hardware are you attempting to install on? Is it a notebook?

What if you install manually, does Setup still give you the error when trying to install?

Set it for 20GB or so, that's what I have for my full disk, single partition answer files.

Specifically, I have: 20480

Your InputLocale has invalid data in it. Change it to this:

<InputLocale>0409:00000409</InputLocale>

Take this out of the ImageInstall object

<InstallToAvailablePartition>true</InstallToAvailablePartition>

Take this out of UserData
