    UILanguage for Windows 7 unattend.xml

    Good morning everyone

    I was hoping this could be clarified for me:

    When generating an unattend.xml for Windows 7 in WSIM should the UILanguage property be set to en-US or can I use en-GB? I've Googled it but can't seem to find a definitive answer. Some people say you should select en-US as it's the only language on the disc but then some people have put en-GB.

    TIA

    Depends on which 'pass'. This is what I have for mine.

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
        <settings pass="windowsPE">
            <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" 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">
                <SetupUILanguage>
                    <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage>
                </SetupUILanguage>
                <InputLocale>0809:00000809</InputLocale>
                <SystemLocale>en-GB</SystemLocale>
                <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage>
                <UserLocale>en-GB</UserLocale>
            </component>
        <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">
                <SystemLocale>en-GB</SystemLocale>
                <UILanguage>en-GB</UILanguage>
                <UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback>
                <UserLocale>0809:00000809</UserLocale>
                <InputLocale>0809:00000809</InputLocale>
            </component>
        </settings>
    </unattend>

    During the *WDS* phase you can only use en-US as that is all there is on the PXE boot image
    During the *Image* unattended phase you may use en-GB for UILanguage

    Keep GB for the locales in both, as this affects things like printers defaulting to A4 etc
