Sysyprep and TImezones
I have been making a unattned xml file in order for sysprep to work on Windows 7. Automating the OOBE. It all seems to work except the timezone in the OOBE pass. I want to have GMT Standard Time_dstoff . When I do this OOBE still displays the time options. When I have GMT Standard Time it does not. I don't want the DST setting kicking on. See TimeZone for more information. I have tried Coordinated Universal Time as well but _dstoff doesn't have an effect.

On your TimeZone link, there's the Time zone values on the right. These are the only Time zone values you can enter within an answer file. Windows itself will take care of whether or not it's BST or GMT from the date specified.
This is what I enter in my answer file:
Irrelevant of the time of year GMT or BST.
<TimeZone>GMT Standard Time</TimeZone>

Michael is correct. The time zone name must match one of the values listed here or under the registry key below.
If you want to double-check the time zone used on a different Windows computer, run tzutil /g from the Command Prompt.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones

If you scroll down on that page on the right hand side it states you can use _dstoff. Anyone had experiance of using it?
