Hide Language & Keyboard Selection add IP

Recommended Posts

Anybody have a working autounattend.xml that hides language and keyboard selection and automatically adds network information?

I've tried the language and keyboard solution offered here and network info offered here but neither work for me.

I also note that I'm using Windows 8.1 retail (Windows 8.1 RETAIL IR3_CCSA_X64FRE_EN-GB_DV9.iso).

My first inclination for the instance where I see the language screen is that Setup does not see the XML file. I would read the log file in the ramdisk ( x:\windows\panther) to verify.

Here is a sample XML you can use for testing. Once you get the language selection successfully hidden, then you can add more.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    <settings pass="windowsPE">        
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" 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">
            <SetupUILanguage>
                <UILanguage>en-us</UILanguage>
            </SetupUILanguage>
            <InputLocale>0409:00000409</InputLocale>
            <SystemLocale>en-us</SystemLocale>
            <UILanguage>en-us</UILanguage>
            <UserLocale>en-US</UserLocale>
        </component>
    </settings>
</unattend>

If en-US does not work, you can try en-GB and 0809:00000809. Here is the full list:
