I am setting up an office 2013 deployment using the OCT. however, when I save the setup, it saves it as an MSP. as a new install, it will not run saying it is a patch. Why does this not confugure as an MSI and how can I get this to be an MSI?

Everything fine;)
You can run your setup with your customization file msp
setup.exe /admifile path_to_msp

Not sure if this still applies, but for my Office 2007 deployment, I put the custom MSP in the Updates folder of the admin share, along with Service Packs, and then running Setup.exe alone, used those MSPs and installed all of my settings automatically.
