Fully Unattended installation not fully unattended yet

The OS installation is still prompting the user to hit "next" for choosing a computer name and for "Help protect your computer" settings even though the choices have been entered into the unattend file.

Here are the entries we are using for autounattend.xml

<ComputerName>MYPC</ComputerName>
Located in: <settings pass="specialize">

<ProtectYourPC>1</ProtectYourPC>
Located in: <settings pass="oobeSystem">


 ComputerName ProtectYourPC
How can these be fixed so that they don't prompt the user?

Please find my unattend.xml file as attachment.

Note: Unattend file must be generated according to your Win7 installation disc.

I have the same entries, except the with references to "processorArchitecture="x86"
Is that the problem?

processorArchitecture="x86" parametere created by WAIK automatically by using the cd that you have used. If you are using unattend.xml that you have obtained from somewhere else, it will not work! You must use your own disc and create your own unattend.xml. Do not copy and paste the datas other than parameters!
