    You can only have 1 autounattend.xml in the root of your install media (USB/optical).

    If you boot your media, you can then SHIFT+F10 to open a CMD Prompt. From here you can run a custom batch file & do whatever.
    ie, create partition, install using dism, etc..
    Or you can run setup.exe & specify an unattend.xml:
    Code:
    Setup /unattend:UEFIunattend.xml
    Setup /unattend:LEGACYunattend.xml
    Setup /unattend:ADMINunattend.xml
    Personally I use a WinPE that I created through Microsoft ADK & just run a batch file that let's be install any OS, any Index, include drivers, etc.

    Copy everything from second unattend file except
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
    and
    Code:
    </unattend>
    to the first file above </unattend> line, then load the unattend in System Image Manager and remove duplicate entries.

    1 applied directly to the image to handle OfflineServicing settings
    1 added to the Panther directory to handle OOBE/Setup/Specialize
    1 added to the installation media to handle WinPE/Disk creation, etc.
