    SCCM 2012 OSD Error

    Hi All,

    I'm trying to deploy Windows 7 using SCCM 2012 but after it applies the image and restarts I keep getting the following error when it tries to run the unattend.xml file.

    Windows could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup].

    The thing is the same .wim image and unattend.xml files work fine when I use WDS and I never get the error, so I have no idea what's going wrong. The contents of my unattend file is below can anyone see anything wrong with it?

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">

    My money would be in the %machinename%. If you check c:\windows\setupgc should be some logs. Use cmtrace to view them. In terms on answer file I iust went for the locale and timezone and didn't add anything else as sccm does the computer name etc for me.

    If you're using SCCM then you shouldn't need to specify a machine name in the unattend.xml

    If the machine is already in SCCM, then it will keep that name
    If its a new name, then it's a little trickier, but you can get it to prompt you for a PC name during OSD: Specify Computername during SCCM OS Deployment | Gatt's Ramblings

    I have given that a go but still get the exact same error message.

    There didn't seem to be a folder called c:\windows\setupgc but the logs I did find didn't seem to have any errors in them. It's very weird.
