Guys What Wrong With This Unattended File?

Recommended Posts

Seems to have a problem when it gets to the windows shell bit

I have just added the organstation and owner part, so that bit is not tested

Please help guy, this is really stressing me out

<TimeZone>UTC</TimeZone> what is that? should be something like this <TimeZone>Central Standard Time</TimeZone>

<PlainText>false</PlainText> don't use that unless you have an encrypted password

you should get an error if it crashes pretty much points to the section that failed. You can hit Shift+ F10 and get to cmd prompt, copy your Panther folder located C:\Windows\Panther to a usb and search for the errors

Thanks mate

I'll try that later

now with this - <PlainText>false</PlainText>

Should I change this to true or just delete the whole line?

remove it completely. If a value is default do not include it. In your case it's simply not encrypted so not needed.

Were you able to solve your issues?

If not, could you be more specific about what isn't working? Does it process any of the rules from your unattend file? If so, which rules aren't processed? Does the whole installation process fail? If so, when exactly?

There is one thing I noticed, but I am assuming it was a copy/paste error. The unattend file that you posted doesn't close the opening <unattend> tag. I loaded the unattend file you attached into SIM, and it gave me an XML error because there wasn't a </unattend> tag at the end of the document. I guess you just missed the last line when copying?
