    WDS Deployment Fails on OOBE unattend file every time


    Hello,

    My first post, but follow the site regularly! I am trying for the 1st time, to figure out WDS to deploy a customized W10 image. I have tried many, many times, and just can not get the unattend.xml file to work. I keep getting an error about "microsoft-shell-setup".

    I have validated the XML file repeatedly in System Image Manager, and it always passes. Nevertheless I keep removing things to try to narrow down the problem, but keeps failing every time. And of course the whole deployment process takes forever each time...so it's getting frustrating. I have included my current version of the file, if someone has thoughts about a possible cause.

    Well, I'm no expert but here's what your net paths produce:

    https://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance
    and
    http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State

    Looks wrong to me.
