    Sysprep w/Unattended.xml


    Hi, I am hoping maybe someone can assist me with this.

    I am building a windows 10 pro, 1803 image. The source is a premade with a volume MAK. The sysprep was successful.

    However, the issue is I am having problems with the unattended.xml file. All I need is the ability to bypass the OOBE. I've attempted three unattended.xml launched via the sysprep command line from audit.

    Three different failures.

    This resulted in a black screen with a recovery partition creating winre.wim, and hanging.

    The OOBE begins, but then gives me the "restart to download update" error

    Finally, just hanging at "Just Wait A moment"

    Please help....


    Here's my current unattended.xml

    Code:

    Reading your answer file, I noticed these settings that are definitely wrong:

    <SystemLocale>Canada</SystemLocale>
    <UILanguage>English</UILanguage>


    SystemLocale is given as xx-YY, where xx is language and YY is region. In your case, that should be en-CA, or in hexa code 1009:00000409. It means US English in Canada.

    The same applies to UILanguage, in your case you should use value en-US.

    Other than that, there seems to be no obvious errors. Here's a tutorial about how to create answer files: Create media for automated unattended install of Windows 10 | Tutorials

    Thanks Kari

    I've rebuilt the file. With the tutorial and your information.

    I've checked the tutorial and reviewed my steps. It still oddly sits on the "Just wait a moment" screen, until I hard boot the machine, then it seems to work.

    I had a problem and was unable to create images on 1803, it does nto allow me to do so as its not a full update or something, I had to sysprep before updating to 1803 and then sysprep, which is a pain to updated every machine when I need them.. maybe its changed? this was 2 months ago
