Changing Date Format in Autounattend.xml


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Could you please give me some XML examples that customize the date format and Language.

Basically I want to have it like this after Windows is finished installing:

I have this for uk

	<settings pass="windowsPE">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<SetupUILanguage>
<UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage>
</SetupUILanguage>
<InputLocale>0809:00000809</InputLocale>
<SystemLocale>en-UK</SystemLocale>
<UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage>
<UserLocale>en-UK</UserLocale>
</component>

Thanks. After a bit more googling I found the Input Locale for AU. I don't know if <InputLocale>0c09:00000409</InputLocale> is the same as <InputLocale>en-AU</InputLocale>, anyways:

		<component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<InputLocale>0c09:00000409</InputLocale>
<SystemLocale>en-AU</SystemLocale>
<UILanguage>en-AU</UILanguage>
<UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback>
<UserLocale>en-AU</UserLocale>
</component>

How to customize Date and Time format is still undetermined. Anybody have a clue?

For Inout locale i had to use <InputLocale>0001042f</InputLocale> because <InputLocale>es-ES</InputLocale> or even <InputLocale>es-MX</InputLocale> never worked for me since Vista came out.

For the other regional settings maybe you can use registry tweaks or read the WAIK docs. I remember seeing some info there but i'm not sure as to what extent you can modify date and time formats.

Maybe trying to not set the fallback language to <UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback> gets yours to work.

Just leave it empty in WAIK or delete in the XML file.

My input works even in Windows 7 XML file, but I'm trying to set the TAPI settings from the XML file but I get an error that they can't be set and the installation aborts.

Everything went fine for last night's install:

		<component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<InputLocale>0c09:00000409</InputLocale>
<SystemLocale>en-AU</SystemLocale>
<UILanguage>en-AU</UILanguage>
<UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback>
<UserLocale>en-AU</UserLocale>
</component>

except the Date Formats.

These, I still have to do manually:

yyyy-MM-dd

HH:mm:ss

Are there any Autounattend.xml settings for these? I went through the WAIK's Help file but didn't see anything. So I guess there can be a registry hack for it.

It is not an option in Autounattend.xml, but you can still script it. If you have in your FirstLogonCommands, you can use intl.cpl and an XML file to set the date format.

Here's an example of the XML itself:

Here's two other pages that might help:
