    I think this doesn't apply to Windows 8/8.1, because it requires Key to install and select the matched image
    yes, key can be skipped with ei.cfg, but using Autounattend.xml disables ei.cfg and pid.txt

    ei.cfg still works, because for modded WMC there is no "installation key" for this edition, you need to remove all the product key scripts(in OP) and use ei.cfg. I had tried with the generic Pro key and Setup returned error "no usable image found". pid.txt doesn't work like you said. :D

    GoToDesktopOnSignIn - Specifies to go to the desktop instead of Start Screen when signing in or when all the apps on a screen are closed.

    ShowWindowsStoreAppsOnTaskbar - Specifies to show Windows Store apps on the taskbar.


    It’s recommended that both settings, GoToDesktopOnSignIn and
    ShowWindowsStoreAppsOnTaskbar, be set to a consistent value, either both set to true or both set to false.


    Parent Hierarchy : Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup | DesktopOptimization


    Applies to : Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup


    Valid Passes :

    offlineServicing
    oobeSystem
    specialize


    Syntax :

    Code:
    <DesktopOptimization>
             <GoToDesktopOnSignIn>true</GoToDesktopOnSignIn>
             <ShowWindowsStoreAppsOnTaskbar>true</ShowWindowsStoreAppsOnTaskbar>
    </DesktopOptimization>

    Tks @MSMG, but I think you also need to show the pass and component. :D

    Just today downloaded the WADK latest version and I haven't had updated my unattend.xml file, so I just pasted the info about the new settings. Sure next time will put the whole structure of XML

    Edited post#2 with sysprep procedures ..... I know I should be able to skip the "accept EULA" and "enter product key", but too tired to test things. :p

    Tks abbodi, but just to make it clear, ask again: unattend.xml or autounattend.xml?
