wdsclientunattend shutdown client computer
Posted on 2013-01-08
I am using WDS (2008R2) to deploy a preconfigured and syspreped Windows 7 image for a client. My WDS server is fully fonctional, i am able to boot from the PXE, join the multicast session and push the image to the client computers.
I have a wdsclientunattend.xml file all the settings are working correctly (user id, password, partition modification...) exept the setting that tells the computer to shutdown before OOBE.
In Pass 1, Windows PE, I have set the Restart setting to Shutdown (
<Restart>Shutdown</Restart>) but the computers are rebooting.
In the help file it says "Restart specifies whether to restart or to shut down the computer after the windowsPE configuration pass. This setting is specific to Windows PE scenarios. Once image-based installation begins, this setting is ignored." .
Anybody know how I can shut down the computers after the image is applyed to the drive??
