[attachment=36127:Autounattend_ProfessionalWMC.xml] I have a single OS Image of Windows 8 Pro with Media Center with a Autounattend.xml answer file that I have got down to 2 install screens before going to the desktop, The "Select your operating System" for Windows 8 Pro with Media Center X64 and then the Partition Screen. Since I only have a single OS image I would like to skip over the Select your OS and go straight to the Partition Screen. My question is where in Settings Pass would I add the skipping over the Select OS? Everything else is working perfect with the Windows Install key installing and Preactivated with my free WMC key . I am not using the ei.cfg nor the pid.tx or setupcomplete. If someone has done this successfully then I would really appreciate the help.. See my attached xml file.
Thanks Again :yes: [attachment=36127:Autounattend_ProfessionalWMC.xml]

If it is prompting you to select an image, it probably doesn't like your product key. It should be enough, but you may want to add the ImageInstall object:

<ImageInstall>
                                <OSImage>
                                        <InstallFrom>
                                                <MetaData wcm:action="add">
                                                        <Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key>
                                                        <Value>Windows 7 ULTIMATE</Value>
                                                </MetaData>
                                        </InstallFrom>
                                </OSImage>
                        </ImageInstall>

And specify the image name as it appears in your WIM.

Thanks for the tip on adding <ImageInstall> to my answer file, Would I add this in the settings pass="windowsPE" section??

Thanks MaXx , Got this all figured out late last nite (See Snippet below - now Win8 just goes to the partition screen , runs all my sfx apps etc and goes straight to desktop)

Now I can go finish my Office silent Installer with pre-activation ... Life is good ö¿ö
