Vista Unattended XML Creator Script


Recommended Posts


what is the : "Offline Image Location:" for? is it needed ? wht do I put in it or do I leave it as IS ?

I think it's for the WAIK to figure out which image source was used so it can reload the correct catalog (I could be wrong though). Not sure why it's been put in this script generator.

On a separate note, the script generates components with processorArchitecture="i386" but shouldn't it be x86? This is what WAIK generates anyway.

add languages Portuguese.

Added support for both Portuguese Brazil and Portuguese Portugal

I always used the WIM file from the Vista CD and put it in the sysprep folder if setup needed extra drivers/files.

Also, even though i386 worked, x86 is the proper syntax and is now corrected. Thanks :)

So, the Offline Image Locater field should be tailored based upon the version we are installing, then? Seeing as I am using Ultimate, I should make that ULTIMATE instead of ENTERPRISE?

Yes that's correct. I'll add something there to make it easier to choose each different version.

One should point out that it probably isn't a smart idea to put a valid product key in this site. While Neon may have the best intentions, the information is unencrypted, and without seeing the source, Neon could be recording them.

While I am guessing he is a great guy, and isn't, the unencrypted part is a problem that can not be dealt with, unless neon sets up a https site.

It would probably be smart to use a key of "abc12" in each field or some such, then when you save his xml file use a text editor to change it to a valid key.

Edit: No offense or anything intended..

No you are correct, I'm stealing all of the Vista keys!!! MUAHHHHHHAHAHAHA

Just kidding, but you do have a good point with the whole unencrypted part. So if you are worried about security, just put in all 1's and then just change it in the actual XML.

Hey everyone!

I've created a script where you enter in a little information and it creates the XML file for you. It's definitely a work in progress and it could use many more options but this will work fine for a unattended Vista installation. I plan to eventually get all of the different passes and components able to be customized on there.

Let me know what you think, and what could be done to make it better!
