Hi, can anyone help me with a small issue.

So I am trying to create a network install (I have some nice script coded that puts the DVD content on an NFS share, partitions a hdd and then boots it via grub4dos).

The files on the Nfs share is a copy of the Microsoft 2008 r2 volume licensing DVD content.

When I put autounattend.xml in the root folder it doesn't get read, so I decided to put it inside boot.wim (from the DVD) and this time it worked. However after expanding files and rebooting it gets stuck at completing installation step. I left it for hours and nothing.

Does anyone know how to fix that (I'm new to this so most likely I'm forgetting something in the answer file?) I checked it and it said valid but I'm not sure.
Below is the XML file

I appreciate your help guys.thanks

At this point the OS boots off the hard drive, not the installation media. That being said, you can look at setupact.log and setuperr.log in C:\Windows\Panther to see what it might be stuck on.
