    No, you don't need wim file. In fact you can completely remove CPI source reference from answer file, the highlighted part:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    <settings pass="specialize">
    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="" xmlns:xsi="">
    <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:X:/sources/install.wim#Windows 10 Pro" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
    If you have a preinstalled OEM Windows I recommend to restore a system image and forget this procedure, some OEM installations have other measures in place preventing successful sysprep.

    If Windows is clean installed by you, you have two options: either re-install or restore a system image and try again, or re-install and forget this procedure.

    Windows 10

    Thank you for posting this thread. I followed the steps provided to create a deployable image; but have encountered an error.
    The copyprofile process creates a situation where the "Windows Search" button located on the taskbar and start menu does not work. Has anyone encountered this and do you have a fix?
    Thank you,
