19 posts in this topic

I assume you did download an iso with a name like this? ja_windows_server_2008_r2_with_sp1_x64_dvd_617387.iso

I seen errors with missing lines and corrected the xml. I removed certain things in windowsPE

            <SetupUILanguage>
<UILanguage>ja-JP</UILanguage>
</SetupUILanguage>
<InputLocale>0411:00000411</InputLocale>
<SystemLocale>ja-JP</SystemLocale>
<UILanguage>ja-JP</UILanguage>

but can be used in oobeSystem

            <SystemLocale>ja-JP</SystemLocale>
<UILanguage>ja-JP</UILanguage>
<UserLocale>ja-JP</UserLocale>

Try this one

Vengada, one too many zeros in second number of "0411:000000411". Please run Windows System Image Manager on your AutoUnattend.xml file before you try an installation. maxXPsoft is an excellent XML advisor - give his a try and let us know the outcome. Enjoy, John.

I made some tests but always Windows asking to give a key using Windows Server 2008...But the installation is in Japanese with the values given.

No window asking to set Japanese UI language appears. The Japanese is set with the answer file.

I will try with Windows Server 2008 R2 as I found a download link:

I made new tests successfully with Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 on Oracle VM VirtualBox.

I downloaded: "7601.17514.101119-1850_x64fre_server_eval_ja-jp-GRMSXEVAL_JA_DVD.iso" file.

However you need to check your Autounattend.xml file with WSIM to see if there is errors and correct them.

The image name I chose is: "Windows Server 2008 R2 SERVERENTERPRISE"

Using the Autounattend.xml attached works and the silent installation for Japanese works fine without asking for the language UI or key to install...

You can use imagex.exe to read all the image names inside install.wim file.

You can try to download a new time the iso image! ;)

*Edit: I think you don't use a full Japanese version Windows Server 2008 R2

Windows 2008 R2 Answer File for Unattended Installation

Open and check inside the folder: sources\lang.ini "Available UI Languages"

Inside the tested version I tried I can read (full Japanese):

[Available UI Languages]
ja-JP = 3

[Fallback Languages]
ja-JP = en-us

*Edit 2: How to add a language pack (inside install.wim and boot.wim images): Select correctly the language packs SP0 or SP1
