Hi Everyone,

I want to make an unattended installation of Windows 7.
I have already configured some options with vLite and it works pefectly.

But when I want to edit that image with WAIK, it just gives me errors..
When I open the unattended.xml file which was generated by Vlite,
I get the following error message which you can find as an attachment.
When I click "yes" I get the next error message..

Does anyone know how I can fix this?
And does anyone have a usefull link that explains the different keys in the file?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Sven

Thanks for the move!
I did some diging myself and found the problem, well, not the problem, but the solution :-D

First you need to use vlite in Windows Server 2008, after this has created the autounattended.xml file, you have to switch OS to Windows 7 and use WAIK on this windows 7 to do the adaptments of the xml-file.

Then boot Windows Server 2008 again, start vlite and load the xml-file and then you can make an ISO-File!

Thanks for the move to a different zone, I wasn't aware of this..
