How can I set Windows 7 Edition selection in Answer file? [Solved]
I'm trying to create a completely unattended win 7 answer file and have managed to get nearly everything answered, but Windows Setup keeps asking which edition of Windows I want to install, even though there is only one option to choose (Enterprise Edition).
Does anyone know how to specify the answer to this in the autounattend.xml answer file, or any other way to get this automated?
Thanks for your help.

This might help - So tired of fighting with answer files please help - MSFN Forums
There is a whole answer file posted (#9 by myselfidem )
but this is the interesting part:
You need to change the number between the <VALUE></VALUE> tags to the relevant image index of your install...
<Path>.\Operating Systems\Windows 7 x86\Sources\install.wim</Path>
Thanks to Gatt from:

Thanks Gatt, that worked perfectly.
I had to change the <path></path> entry as well, but as I'm installing from a DVD rather than a network share, all I had to do was specify the wim image name without the path. Setup.exe looks for the image in the <CD DRIVE LETTER>:\SOURCES\ folder.
Thanks again for your help.
