    So there is no way to tell my answer file to ignore drive1 if drive1 does not exist?

    I did some heavy internet digging and saw an error.cmd or something like that where you can script a response should a critical failure of the install happens. Is it possible for me to script a swap of answer files to one that only deals with drive0?

    What are compliance check,diagnostics,pagefile,runasyncronous,runsycronous,upgradedata in the windowsPE section? What kinds of things would I fill that in with? Also how do I package the drivers so setup can use them?

    Hey Kari,

    Great article!

    I have a question what installation media are you using in Step Six? The Original ISO from where we copied the files? Do you wrap the ISO_Files folder with the autounattended.xml file into a new ISO and use that?

    Thanks,
    Mishu

    Hi Mishu, welcome to Ten Forums.

    When installing Windows on reference machine, that machine's only purpose being to allow us to customize Windows to be captured to a custom WIM file, I use valid installation media for the specific Windows 10 build I want to customize. There's no need to use the autounattend.xml or a special ISO at this point, nothing special yet. The autounattend.xml will be first used when we create our custom ISO, then it needs to be on root of ISO_Files before making an ISO using that folder.

    Use the same ISO to clean install on reference machine than you used to copy files to ISO_Files folder.

    I was just wondering if anyone can help.
    When I have followed this guide (Which is very good) my custom usb image doesn't seem to run my sysprep file which adds the user account etc. also the autorun sysprep file has GB keyboard setting in it but when you boot of the USB stick I have to select the keyboard etc.
    Just seems like both of my sysprep files are not being read or are failing. can anyone help resolve this issue
    Thank you

    The instructions in this tutorial have been tested several times. If you follow given instructions to build autounattend.xml file to automate Windows Setup, and to build unattend.xml to automate OOBE, it works.

    Notice that in instructions there are nothing you can just choose to leave out. Add every component told to your answer files.

    If you want to, you can ZIP your answer files and upload the ZIP archive here, I will then check the files to see if there are any obvious errors.
