Hello guys testing Win 10 UA have modified my 8.1 answer file for 10 though hangs on the very end of install. The wim is a single index 1. Pro edition.

See xml attached there maybe something glaring obvious?

 

 

Autounattend.xml

auditSystem pass would never be processed, so it should be removed.

I have not seen Autologon used in the specialize pass. What is the reason for using it there and not in oobeSystem?

So you say it hangs... does it ever finish? I would look into the log files to see what it was working on at the time of the problem.

Thanks Trip will remove these. Running this in a VM not too sure I remember how to retrieve the setuperr.log here?

With the autologon in SP have used same since Vista & never really caused any issues to speak of?

In a hang situation, setuperr.log might be empty. Last entries in setupact.log or possibly the ones in Unattend_GC might be helpful.

Not sure in the case of a VM, but you would need to restart and boot into a PE somehow. Or if you can just boot your Setup DVD without the unattend file you can use its CMD/Notepad with Shift+F10.

Beginning to think you cannot use a host W7x64 in making or using a Win 10 image!

in the meantime can anyone offer a working W10 answer file I can test in my image? Please remove any sensitive info.

I have not done a ua install of W10 yet but normally I just specify the image name of the OS from the wim and add it to the image install section then value, here is example of 8 WMC that works for me.

<!--SELECT OS-->     <ImageInstall>       <OSImage>     <InstallFrom>       <MetaData wcm:action="add">       <Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key>       <Value>Windows 8 Pro with Media Center</Value>        </MetaData>     </InstallFrom>        </OSImage>     </ImageInstall>

The ImageInstall object is fine. You can do it that way, or the way MC did it. I personally use this method:

            <UserData>                <ProductKey>                    <Key>XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX</Key>                    <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>                </ProductKey>                <AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula>            </UserData>            <ImageInstall>                <OSImage>                    <InstallTo>                        <DiskID>0</DiskID>                        <PartitionID>1</PartitionID>                    </InstallTo>                    <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>                </OSImage>            </ImageInstall>
Regarding host OS... I can honestly say that I have rarely even used WSIM since Vista days. I make all my XMLs in Notepad based off a saved one for something else.

My editing PC currently runs Server 2008 R2 and has 2 different Kits installed: Windows 7 OPK and Windows 8.1 ADK. I then have DISM10 in another folder that I can add drivers or updates using the Windows 8.1 Tools cmd.

Update
Have reworked my xml appears previous "specialize pass" settings not operating with W10!
If I remove those passes it works.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

Did you try having WSIM validate against your install.wim? Maybe a setting has changed.

 

Hi Trip

Having difficulties validating with my wim image. As WSIM refuses to open any of my wim's. Can open my xml's for basic checking though errors when trying to associate with them.

Ok. I do not yet have the new WSIM installed and have not done any XML for a deployment like that yet, so I can't test right now.

Is the behaviour different from before? Before you had a hang issue, is it still this way or is it that Specialize is ignored? I have read some posts where people complain that ComputerName isn't being applied... but also wonder about your source. Are you trying to use the ISO from the Media Creation Tool?

there is no error with while validating with WSIM but i dont want to keep my work visible to everyone so i am testing 

and is there any problem of having one autounattend.xml on cd root and another autounattend.xml integrated on wim file  ?

 

if it works i can only keep the setup setting in cd root and save all the other setting in wim file
