    unattend xml not wiping drives / unable to create primary


    I'm having an issue where the paritions are created, but something goes wrong and then I have to format the primary drive to install windows onto. It's a UEFI config, does anyone have any suggestions?

    here is my tested and working part for your "wipe" problem.
    It is configured for UEFI and GPT. Feel free to share and use it!

    Best regards
