    Look in the properties of the deployment share in the workbench and you will find them in there. You will need to look on line for some of those you want to add.

    Hi,


    Here is a helpful guide: Deploying Windows 7 - Part 1: Windows AIK 2.0 Enhancements.

    We are using MDT 2012, some of these setting may not work on older versions. Here is our custom rules (I am in the UK, so some settings will need changing):

    [Default]
    OSInstall=Y
    SkipCapture=YES
    SkipAdminPassword=YES
    SkipProductKey=YES
    SkipComputerBackup=YES
    SkipBitLocker=NO
    JoinDomain=DOMAIN
    MachineObjectOU=Default OU
    OU drop down list
    DomainOUs1=OU option 1
    DomainOUs2=OU option 2



    SkipUserData=YES

    SkipTimeZone=YES
    TimeZone=085
    TimeZoneName=GMT Standard Time

    SkipLocaleSelection=YES
    InputLocale=0809:00000809
    KeyboardLocale=0809:00000809
    KeyboardLocalePE=0809:00000809
    SystemLocale=0809:00000809
    UILanguage=0809
    UserLocale=0809:00000809

    KeyboardLocale=0809:00000809
    UserLocale=en-GB
    UILanguage=en-GB

    So this seems to work:

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default
    Properties=MyCustomProperty

    [Default]
    OSInstall=Y
    SkipAppsOnUpgrade=YES
    SkipCapture=YES
    SkipAdminPassword=NO
    SkipProductKey=YES
    WsusServer=http://keymaster
    SkipTimeZone=Yes
    TimeZoneName=US Eastern Time
    SkipUserData=YES
    SkipLocaleSelection=YES

    It skips everything like it should, but now once the OS has been install, it prompts for TimeZone and Wireless..
    I know these settings are in the unattend.xml
    (4) Specialized
    amd64_Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup
    TimeZone: Eastern Standard Time

    I also entered the OOBE Time Zone - Eastern Standard Time
    And i also selected to hide wireless...

    Your TimeZoneName doesn't look right. Try this instead...


    Code:
    [Settings]
    Priority=Default
    Properties=MyCustomProperty
    
    [Default]
    OSInstall=Y
    SkipAppsOnUpgrade=YES
    SkipCapture=YES
    SkipAdminPassword=NO
    SkipProductKey=YES
    WsusServer=http://keymaster
    SkipUserData=YES
    
    SkipLocaleSelection=YES
    KeyboardLocale=0409:00000409
    UserLocale=en-US
    UILanguage=en-US
    
    SkipTimeZone=YES
    TimeZoneName=Eastern Standard Time
