Kenne76, I suspect this means that there is no install.wim file in your ISO.  Where did you get your ISO?  It can be opened with an extractor application (I use 7-zip) to see the files/folders in it.  Enjoy, John.

 

EDIT:  It looks like your XML file has a number of problems.  I suggest you install the ISO directly by booting it.

I got my Windows 10 ISO file via MediaCreation Tool from Windows. If I install without xml file then it works fine. 

It is probably something wrong with my unattended xml fil, but I don't figure what's wrong with it.

Thanks, Kenne76.  I suggest you run WSIM (Windows System Image Manager).  Since it is not formatted, it is almost impossible to read - even one xml line per line would be better than what you posted.  Your product key is no good, of course.  There are install keys available for the version of W10 you are using.  Google can find it for you.  I think the Media Creation Tool ISOs contain an install.esd not install.wim.  I do not know if you can do an unattended install on it.  This post has links to ISO files containing wim files.  Enjoy, John.

I havde created the unattended xml file with WSIM version 10.0.10586.0. If I remove the ProductKey following error message appear "Windows cannot read the <Product Key> setting from the unattend answer file.

@kmaheshkumar - You are aware that those are Generic KMS (GVLK) keys issued (indirectly) by MS themselves, right?

Those are for Build 10240 ("Free Upgrade" of the RTM) -

FYI: You can easily generate answer files from the WAFG site pages. It also includes a list of generic Product Keys for install purposes.

The XML file can be modified for auto-install/partitioning using the Easy2Boot XMLtoE2B edit utility.
