    resolution in Windows 7 Sysprep

    Hi,

    Is there a way in Windows 7 sysprep to automatically set the highest possible resolution instead of using the one specified in the .xml file?

    Thanks

    Hi - What style of deployment are you doing?
    - Single system (autounattend.xml)
    - Small scale deployment (LiteTouch)
    - Large scale deployment (ZeroTouch)

    We're using a Zero Touch (SCCM / ConfigMgr) deployment in our enviroment:
    Using this method you have two unattend.xml files, one for the base image and one for the final deployment.

    In the base image we have:
    <settings pass="windowsPE">
    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State">
    <Display>
    <ColorDepth>16</ColorDepth>
    <HorizontalResolution>1024</HorizontalResolution>
    <RefreshRate>60</RefreshRate>
    <VerticalResolution>768</VerticalResolution>
    </Display>
    </component>
    </settings>

    In the final deployment we EXCLUDED this information (so there is NO reference to the display or resolution.
    If the correct drivers are included the display resolution will upgrade to the max supported resolution.
    If the correct drivers are not found the display resolution will stay at 1024 * 768

    This method has worked for all out Intel, ATI etc graphic cards in desktop computers and laptop computers.

    So to confirm you just removed the above from the xml and it worked?

    So if i remove this from mine it should be ok?

    Code:
                <Display>
                    <ColorDepth>32</ColorDepth>
                    <HorizontalResolution>1280</HorizontalResolution>
                    <VerticalResolution>1024</VerticalResolution>
                </Display>
    Thanks

    Yes, removing that entry would be a good thing to try. You may need to ensure that the correct display drivers are being loaded.
    If you're only new to the unattend.xml configuration method don't feel discouraged by these small teething issues. It may take a few days to get perfect, but once it's set up it sould save you plenty of time with your Windows 7 installs (and SOE).
