    Hi

    The suggestion to use the Autounattend.xml was to validate your answer file.

    If we can get the computer joined to the domain then I guess we can elminate Network Type as Work as all computers joined to the domain will show as Domain.

    Hi

    Under the Windows PE Phase there are 2 keys.

    1. Microsoft-Windows-Setup\UserData\ProductKey\Key
    Specifies the Windows image to install during Windows Setup. If this setting is used by itself, Windows Welcome will prompt for a product key.

    2. Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup\ProductKey
    Specifies a Product Key to activate Windows. If this setting is used, Windows Welcome will not prompt for a product key. This setting can be used with Microsoft-Windows-Setup\UserData\ProductKey\Key, and the two product keys can be different.

    If you are using a Volume License Multiple Activation Key (MAK), it must be specified using this setting.

    Can you try this?

    Regards
    Sukh

    Sukh...I appreciate all the help but I am going to have to move to another project for a few days and come back to this a little later.

    Again, I appreciate all your time. I'll post back if I get it working or when I get to come back to this.

    Thanks again.

    Sukh...

    Had a little time yesterday to play around again. I talked with a neighboring tech guy and he gave me one of his imageunattend.xml that he uses. I compared and the only difference I saw was the location of the components. The components were the same but most of mine were in WindowsPE and OOBE....most of his were in Specialize and OOBE. I edited his xml and low and behold....it ran fine. The only thing that did not work was the prompt on network location. All others populated fine.

    So....I guess the location of components is important!!

    Again, thanks for all your help.

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply. I didn't have a chance to look into it more but I the passes are important. Specialise will come after PE. I will have a look at the unattend.xml so I can put my mind at rest.

    The oobeSystem pass is the only section where the NetworkLocation will be applied. If your PC is joining the domain then this will be "Domain" anyway. Alternatively, you can set a GPO for this.

    Let me know if this is an issue andif you want to continue troubleshooting this particular pass.

    Thanks
    Sukh

    You might find its because of this:

    A "Set Network Location" dialog box appears when you first log on to a domain-joined Windows 7-based client computer

    so you'll need to slipstream this into the WIM of wni7

    Note that in Win7 SP1, it is already included

    Cheers
