    Question: Should I remove the "install.esd" file in the base iso before or after execution of the procedure. Its currently running an I am thinking the final usb image might contain the .esd and .wim file.
    Before using the USB to install Windows, delete the install.esd file, replace it with your custom install.wim file.

    Thank you for such a quick response. I am waiting for the creation of the usb to finish. its been over an hour but the wim file is over 95gb, no activity in task manager. 92gb of ram is cached. Might have to start over but ill give it a lil longer. Oh and the last file listed is N:\usbcreate\baseiso\sources\install.wim

    Sorry to have wasted your time. I just noticed that my dism version is not the same as the current version. I am getting an error installing. it states ‘Windows cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms’

    I answered the same question posted by another member in another thread a few days ago.



    Notice that you do not need the ei.cfg file when using autounattend.xml, you can skip step 2 in this tutorial and remove line 10 from batch file in step 5.

    Sorry, I followed exactley the steps describeb, and I am encountering an error when copying autorun.inf
    Tried to copy the text inside and make a new autorun.inf, but it didn't work, I couldn't even open the newly created file.
    Also, there is not mention of this autounattend.xml, could you please elaborate on that?
    thanks :)
