WDS - Prompt to Enter Computer name (Using WDS unnatend.xml selected on the server)
Ive seen that there are several guides to modifying the sysprep file after you have captured the image and then run a VBS script or similar, or use mysysprep2 to get the image to prompt for computer name.. but i want to select the XML for each image using the option on the properties on the WDS server.
After all these years is this possible yet?

I've got a script you can use as part of a task sequence which will detect a random computer name and prompt you to choose one. I think I posted it on my blog, but I may have to go digging and re post it.

Export the image and import it again under a different name, but keep it in the same install group. Then under its properties select a different XML for the unattended file. Result will be an additional image in the list of available ones to choose from, only this one will be using a different answer file. Since WDS uses deduplication to store the images in an install group it won't take up any additional space either.

I found the sections here really helpful in relating to Prompt for a computer name in unattend.xml
