I have a Windows 2008 r2 server running ADDS and WDS. I am trying to setup a deployment server to deploy windows 7 enterprise using unattend files to automate the installation of windows. As the actual deployment will happen in a company with a hundred computers, I have no time to manually specify the language and hard drive options for each PC.
So far I am stuck in getting these unattend files to work. My deployment server functions perfectly, but the unattend files don't seem to be used by the server. If I image a machine, I am still asked for language, drive options etc., which shouldn't be happening if I have unattend files. I have pointed the deployment server to the windows PE unattend file in my Remote Install directory, and I have allowed for my image to be installed using an unattend file, which I also specified the location. I have also tried unsuccessfully putting the unattend file on a USB stick.
What am I missing?
