Sharing A Install.wim File From Server To Client To Create A Unattended Install Answer File.
Wish the docs were more...coordinated maybe? MDT has spoiled me, and I forgot all about this until I tested in lab –WinOutreach4 Aug 16 '12 at 16:53 @ancillary The one thing missing from that article just a learning process. However, I still have to "attend" the install as the PXE > boot.wim image asks for language and partition stuff. his comment is here

How can I build a Nuclear Reactor in my backyard? That's all working fine. Your boot.wim was asking for language and partition information? Thanks.
- I'm sure there are ways around all that, but with MDT, I get a few simple screens (admin pass; domain and domain join; OU) and am off and running.
- I have 2 images: boot.wim install.wim I've added drivers to both, and the reference install wim works fine with included programs and everything.
- I suppose there might be a default boot unattend.xml file for WDS, but I don't know.
A bonus to having WDS already set up, I could import the boot image created by MDT into WDS to PXE boot clients into the MDT PE. I've created an unattend.xml file for install.wim which sets locale, language, etc. For example:

The boot.wim needs no unattend. Figure 5 in this article has details.

What is meant by one being in a "tax bracket"? this content In the WDS server properties, enable unattended install is not selected for client (again, didn't get that far). PS, I've come across more alphabet soup while reading docs for this stuff...it seems to have warn off on me ;) All that said, if anyone has an answer, I'd appreciate The unattend should be set for the install.wim. –WinOutreach4 Aug 15 '12 at 21:41 Right.

Not the answer you're looking for? I was able to bring over the install.wim that I had created with WDS so that was a huge help. I would have had to still get the domain join process working in WDS (or log into each machine and join that way) and using WDS I was left with multiple Wds Unattended Installation Windows 10 That's odd, since the boot.wim should be WindowsPE and should create a RAM drive for itself.
Am I missing something? More information on the WindowsPE pass can be found in this article.

The OP was asking about an unattend.xml for these questions (which I believe you answered with your first link in this answer with the 2 unattend.xml examples).

The very first example in this article is an example of a WindowsPE pass for WDS that should help you get past those initial prompts for language and setting up the This is not specific to the boot image, but all boot images per architecture.
