Come you help with AutoUnattend.xml Disk Configuration settings for the following recommended configuration: a system partition, a Windows partition (drive C), and a Data partition (drive D).

Thanks

I tried this configuration file with my WDS Server and it's not working:

<DiskConfiguration>

  <Disk wcm:action="add">
    <DiskID>0</DiskID>
    <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk>
    <CreatePartitions>

      <!-- System partition -->
      <CreatePartition wcm:action="add">
        <Order>2</Order>
        <Type>Primary</Type>
        <Size>350</Size>
      </CreatePartition>

      <!-- Windows partition -->
      <CreatePartition wcm:action="add">
        <Order>3</Order>
        <Type>Primary</Type>
        <Size>75000</Size>

      </CreatePartition>
    </CreatePartitions>

      <!-- Recovery image partition -->
      <CreatePartition wcm:action="add">
        <Order>1</Order>
        <Type>Primary</Type>
        <Size>15000</Size>
      </CreatePartition>

    <ModifyPartitions>

      <!-- System partition -->
      <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add">
        <Order>1</Order>
        <PartitionID>1</PartitionID>
        <Label>System</Label>
        <Letter>S</Letter>
        <Format>NTFS</Format>
        <Active>true</Active>
      </ModifyPartition>

      <!-- Windows partition -->
      <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add">
        <Order>2</Order>
        <PartitionID>2</PartitionID>
        <Label>Windows</Label>
        <Letter>C</Letter>
        <Format>NTFS</Format>
      </ModifyPartition>

      <!-- Recovery image partition -->
      <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add">
        <Order>3</Order>
        <PartitionID>3</PartitionID>
        <Label>Recovery</Label>
        <Format>NTFS</Format>
        <TypeID>0x27</TypeID>
      </ModifyPartition>

    </ModifyPartitions>
  </Disk>
  <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>
</DiskConfiguration>

<ImageInstall>
  <OSImage>
    <InstallTo>
      <DiskID>0</DiskID>
      <PartitionID>2</PartitionID>
    </InstallTo>
  </OSImage>
</ImageInstall>
