I have set up WDS for deployment of new Desktops running Win 7 service pack 1.   I have WDS installed and setup - using WAIK to create answer file - which after many hours looking for answer to an error, I found that there is an add on for the WAIK download you have to apply when deploying  service pack 1 for either Win 7 or 2008 server. My question is in regard to unattend file. I have read conflicting articles on creating the unattend file-some recommend using 2 unattend files-one for the PE and another for oobe.  Has anyone done a successful deployment of Win 7 service pack 1 using WDS and AIK?  If so could you share how you did it or if anyone has any other recommendations on doing this successfully and what is needed in the unattend file.
