Can Multiple AutoUnattend files be processed on the SAME PASS, e.g., WindowsPE?


If there are multiple AutoUnattend files found containing WindowsPE pass items, will ONLY the items from the first (highest priority) be applied or will they all apply?

[Assume there are no conflicting settings -- if there are conflicts then I would expect the file with the highest priority to "win".]



My extensive searching and reading has found no information directly addressing this -- my testing suggests (strongly) that only the first file is used.


Reason:

I need an AutoUnattend.xml coming from the Dell Integrated LifeCycle controller to supply the disk drivers configuration AND for my own file mounted on removable media to ALSO be applied -- there are no conflicts, just both are configured to do things in the WindowsPE pass:

Disk driver config by Dell's file and Drive partitioning etc by my file.-- both during WindowsPE pass.

The answer is:

One AutoUnattend.xml file per pass.

Only the first which has a particular pass configured gets used.

That's what my testing and reading the setupact.log shows.

They are both 'read', 'checked', and 'seen' but only first one is used during WindowsPE pass.


It's been a tough few days, but boy did I learn a lot.
