WDS sysprep.inf setting default language

G'day,

We are using WDS on Microsoft Server 2003 to deploy Windows XP. However, we cannot get our Default Input Language to change using the sysprep.inf file.

We want all XP workstations to be English (Australian) - Keyboard US. But it keeps defaulting to English (US) - Keyboard US. All other language settings successfully change to Australia.

Our Regional Settings in our sysprep.inf is shown in the code below.

Can anyone please offer any assistance?

Just to clarify, the setting we want changed is in Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Languages tab > Details button > Default Input Language
[RegionalSettings]
InputLocale = 0C09:00000409
InputLocale_DEFAULTUSER = 0C09:00000409
Language = 0C09
LanguageGroup = 1
SystemLocale = 0C09
UserLocale = 0C09
UserLocale_DEFAULTUSER = 0C09

Did you copy your language files? Take a look at http://blog.coretech.dk/osdeploy/language/working-with-different-languages-in-windows-xp/

Consider using nlite to create image, I used it a lot and works great.
