    I guess I don’t fully understand.

    If you’re looking to do an unattended setup, why not just insert the unattended.xml file in the Image before upload?

    If you sysprep the system, it will locate that unattend (as long as it’s in C:\Windows\System32\sysprep\unattend.xml) and clean up the system. You can specify all of the things you need and it’s as a part of the Windows. The way I do it,

    !.) Install the OS
    2.) At the name computer, generate username I hit Ctrl+Shift+F3, the system will reboot and login to Administrator in Audit mode.
    3.) Install all the software we need. Windows updates, etc…
    4.) Sysprep the system. I use the code:
    [code]cd c:\Windows\System32\sysprep
    sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:“C:\Windows\System32\sysprep\unattend.xml”[/code]

    5.) (I use vm’s but should work) WHen the image is sysprepping, I create my image task. Once the system is complete with sysprepping, I power back on the system and it creates the tasking.

    Hope this helps.



  • Hi,

    this is not the intention of fog but i can hardly recommend wintoolkit combined with an unattended.xml.
    I boot a winpe that is making a network connection, mounts a win7 install share and runs setup fully
    automated ;) but i just use that for fresh installations, i image with fog after that.

    Regards X23
