    Problem with Windows 10 unattended answer file?


    The problem with my answer is that following error message appears "Windows cannot read the <ProductKey> setting from the unattend answer file". Can someone help me with this problem? Can I somehow skip this product key part in the answer file?

    Here is my answer file.

    Hi Ken. Your answer file suggests that you are a fellow Finland Swede. Welcome to Ten Forums!

    The problem with my answer is that following error message appears [B]"Windows cannot read the <ProductKey> setting from the unattend answer file".
    That error is because there's no generic product key or MAK key in your answer file. It is obligatory in autounattend.xml answer file, the one that takes care of first phase of Windows setup, partitioning and installing.

    Please see step 3.9 in following tutorial for how to add key in answer file: Create media for automated unattended install of Windows 10
