autounattend.xml question

10 posts in this topic

i've tried to create an autounattend.xml file,

works largely, but i have to choose Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro in a little popup box,

anybody knows how to get it to install just the Pro version.

any help would be much appreciated.

P.S. this XML i created from a guide i found online, i have no need to slim anything, just to get it to unattend install.

autounattend.xml

Change inside your Autounattend.xml the Key value to:


<OSImage>
<InstallFrom>
<MetaData wcm:action="add">
<Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key>
<Value>Windows 8 Pro</Value>
</MetaData>
</InstallFrom>

remove the <InstallToAvailablePartition>false</InstallToAvailablePartition>

what you have should work but you could try this

<MetaData wcm:action="add">

<Key>/IMAGE/Index</Key>

<Value>1</Value>

</MetaData>

I made some search on the Web about this window to choose the Windows 8 Editions!

Have you an ei.cfg file inside the folder sources ?

Take a look here, and remove EI.CFG (or create one if you want select Windows 8 Pro or Windows 8 Core):

http://www.windowsva...ut-product-key/

The ei.cfg file doesn't exist inside Windows 8 Pro !

This is a dual 32/64 that I use works perfect and without ei.cfg, It Only shows the Windows 8 Pro X64

edition that you want then goes to format/partition then no more nag screens and straight to Metro.

You can revise as needed with language, time zone, user name etc..Hope this helps
