Doubt about Audit and auto unattended?

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am making windows 8 auto unattended , after restart it boots into audit mode ..where i change my program data and user settings to different partition. after i restart into OOBE ..unattended is not working. Is that normal? or is there is anyway to continue unattended installation?. Please help me.

Thanks

In the future, if you posted your thread in the wrong section, ask a moderator to move it instead of creating a new thread.

When you are in Audit Mode, you have to close the Sysprep window, then run sysprep from the cmdline using the /unattend switch. Preferably, your XML file should not have any WinPE passes in it.

You have Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup in there twice. Check your answer file in WSIM for any other possible issues.

Also

You do not put it in Panther folder as that name. That is the recording folder for the Installation and it saves a unattend.xml file in that location. Place it somewhere else like C:\ and run this command

sysprep.exe /oobe /reboot /unattend:C:\OOBEAudit.xml

Is this 64 bit or not you have both?

processorArchitecture="x86"

processorArchitecture="amd64"

Also have

processorArchitecture="wow64" which is wrong

set them all to one

also you have settings which are for Win 8 not Win 7

<HideOEMRegistrationScreen>true</HideOEMRegistrationScreen>

<HideOnlineAccountScreens>true</HideOnlineAccountScreens>

<HideLocalAccountScreen>true</HideLocalAccountScreen>

<HideOEMRegistrationScreen>true</HideOEMRegistrationScreen>

<HideOnlineAccountScreens>true</HideOnlineAccountScreens>

try this file

Untitled new4.xml

I am not dead sure but <ComputerName> cannot have blank spaces in it

To customize the Windows default theme, you must include the settings: DesktopBackground and ThemeName.

really you don't need to add to xml but replace this file even if you do that with

DVD\sources\$OEM$\$$\Web\Wallpaper\Windows\img0.jpg that is default image loaded when desk loads
