Hi Experts,

I want to deploy WIN7 with unattended installation.
When I boot the machine to the PXE mode I can choose my WIN7 Install image.
But later it stops always at the same point in the unattended mode of

specialize
Microsoft-Windows-Shell-setup

Do you have any ideas ?

With WDS you need 2 unattend.xml's one for the winpe phase and the other for the setup phase. a copy of the unattend.xml's would be helpful

the 1st one is connected to the x64 architecture in the WDS2012 properties.

the 2nd is linked with the image.
it has just some settings like joindomain and local user accounts.

sorry guys , now it is working.
The special thing was the image and sysprep.
because with sysprep you have to delete also the temp user accounts and stop one service.
Then sysprep and then the unattended xml´s are working :-)
