    Post setting locale windows 7 X64 woes

    Could someone please advise does the below xml code look correct for setting the locale as i have been struggling for a couple day to set the locale. Task sequence runs fine no errors but on log in locale etc set to En-US

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    - <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    - <settings pass="oobeSystem">
    - <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <InputLocale>0809:00000809</InputLocale>
    <SystemLocale>en-GB</SystemLocale>
    <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage>
    <UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback>
    <UserLocale>en-GB</UserLocale>
    </component>
    </settings>
    <cpifflineImage cpi:source="wim://server/sources$/os/w7sp1entx64/sources/install.wim#Windows 7 ENTERPRISE" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
    </unattend>

    Does the source .wim have to be the .wim i am deploying?

    I have tried all setting to Be en-GB still does not apply any help will be greatly appreciated

    I had something similar and used a GPP to set correct settings for users.

    This is the unattend XML I use for deploying Windows 7:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    <settings pass="oobeSystem">
    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <InputLocale>en-GB</InputLocale>
    <SystemLocale>en-GB</SystemLocale>
    <UILanguage>en-GB</UILanguage>
    <UILanguageFallback>en-GB</UILanguageFallback>
    <UserLocale>en-GB</UserLocale>
    </component>
    </settings>
    <cpifflineImage cpi:source="catalog://sccm/sources/operating systems/windows 7/sources/install_windows 7 enterprise.clg" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
    </unattend>

    UILanguage (and UILanguageFallback) cannot be set to 'en-GB' in Windows 7 because it is not a valid language. Check your setupact.log file and you will see the following error...

    Yeah I know - though it doesn't affect the deployment at all - it remains at en-US and the rest are all set to en-GB
    I really should update my XML to reflect it, but CBA when its working anyway! lol
