    I've used your method to create a 36 langages WinTPC installer DVD. Worked fine, thank you.

    There's a way to have setup installer display in the requested langage.

    For each integrated lp.cab , use expand command ( "expand -f:* lp.cab exp_dir" ) first and locate \sources\license\ and \Setup\sources\ directories in the expanded files.

    After mounting BOOT.WIM index:2 in \Mount, copy \sources\license\xx-xx to \Mount\Sources\License\ directory and \setup\sources\xx-xx to \Mount\Sources . Then Unmount BOOT.WIM.

    Then Setup will display in the installing langage as soon as you have choosen this langage in the first menu displayed during setup.

    ;)

    It doesn't work with the ITALIAN language pack

    Sorry, mate. I did everything you said, step by step, but the ThinPC installation language and display language remains in English invariably, and cannot be changed after installation.

    I copied the relevant Italian lp.cab from the Standard 7 SP1 32bit IBW ISO disc and put it into a new directory renamed it-IT in the ThinPC LangPacks folder (where the original en-US is).

    Then I updated the lang.ini file and merged it into boot.wim using dism, as you instructed. On this respect, your description is a bit unclear. To merge lang.ini should I put it in a folder named \source placed in the MOUNT directory? I didn't really understand this step.

    Is it really sufficient to put the updated lang.ini into boot.wim to get the Italian option at the installation menu? It doesn't seem the case, although I may have made some mistake.

    I didn't put any language pack into install.wim, just some optionals as Search and .NET 3.5.

    Any help will be extremely appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    For the language pack, you need to use one from here :
    I've got a little question. I've made it run perfect if I boot on a USB key. Now I want to use it inside SCCM but every time I run my Task Sequence, it install in english. I've try to specify a unattend.xml file during the OS deploy task but it doesn't care about.

    Does anyone have an idea ?
