I’ve made an autounattend.xml file for my Windows 7 OEM Pre activated disk. It works fine. But it makes my widows trial. That means my genuine Windows becomes trial if I use it. What’s the problem? I've tested with Pendrive made by sardu.

SkipMachineOOBE and SkipUserOOBE are not valid for Windows 7. SkipReArm will only work if the install image was created using that setting.

Thanks sir. So can I delete 3 sections (SkipMachineOOBE, SkipUserOOBE and SkipReArm) from my autounattend.xml file?

Yes. My activation problem is solved by deleting 3 sections (SkipMachineOOBE, SkipUserOOBE and SkipReArm). But before desktop setup shows option to select OEM logo (Brand logo) and Information now.

When installing Windows in UEFI mode, do I need to format the two system partitions in any way? I am reading this, and it only covers the creation (and for some reason they say the first partition should be 200MB, but everywhere I look it's usually only 100).

When manually installing windows creates nessesary partitions itself. With XML this is a part of my UEFI XML for virtual machine (Formats and creates partitions on a single drive). Might be dangerous on a multi-drive system as the wrong disk may be selected for format (thats why i never use automatic partitioning on a real machine in XML). Goes under windowsPE pass under diskconfiguration:

Im not saying its correct as mostly you only need 3 partitions: 1. ESP (100MB) > 2. MSR (128MB) > 3. Windows (Expanding).

Also for some reason i've set my ESP to sit on FAT32 not NTFS. God knows why...

Yeah I know how it works, I was just unsure because the Microsoft link only mentioned creating the partitions, but not doing anything with them, which kinda confused me and I thought maybe it was not necessary for UEFI (which wouldn't make any sense though).

Yeah i have always used 100MB ESP partition. Not sure why MS would suggest 200MB.

Btw fixed code:

<DiskConfiguration> <Disk wcm:action="add">                <DiskID>0</DiskID>                <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk>                <CreatePartitions>                  <CreatePartition wcm:action="add">                    <Order>1</Order>                    <Type>EFI</Type>                    <Size>100</Size>                  </CreatePartition>                  <CreatePartition wcm:action="add">                    <Order>2</Order>                    <Type>MSR</Type>                    <Size>128</Size>                  </CreatePartition>                  <CreatePartition wcm:action="add">                    <Order>3</Order>                    <Type>Primary</Type>                    <Extend>true</Extend>                  </CreatePartition>                </CreatePartitions>                <ModifyPartitions>                  <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add">                    <Order>1</Order>                    <PartitionID>1</PartitionID>                    <Label>ESP</Label>                    <Format>NTFS</Format>                  </ModifyPartition>                  <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add">                    <Order>2</Order>                    <PartitionID>2</PartitionID>                    <Label>MSR</Label>                    <Format>NTFS</Format>                  </ModifyPartition>                  <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add">                    <Order>3</Order>                    <PartitionID>3</PartitionID>                    <Label>System</Label>                    <Letter>C</Letter>                    <Format>NTFS</Format>                  </ModifyPartition>                </ModifyPartitions>              </Disk>              <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>            </DiskConfiguration>

They recommend a different size for SSDs, but 260MB not 200.

Each bootable drive must contain an ESP. The computer boots to this partition.

For Advanced Format Generation One (4-KB-per-sector) drives, the minimum size of this partition is 260 MB.

For earlier 512-byte-per-sector drives, the minimum size of this partition is 100MB.

Even windows installation itself creates a 100MB partition on SSD:
