Is there any trick you guys use ?
Yes, with system image manager from ADK you can verify your xml file.

I have created an answer file and when I use it with an iso, it gives error -
"Windows could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Deployment]"
I have tried to use an answer file downloaded from here also, with the same iso, but it gives the same error.
I am trying this in a virtualbox.
What am I doing wrong ?
I would break your xml up into chunks and check them individually until I figured out which part was causing the issue.
Alternatively you could also post it here in a code-box minus any product keys and ask for help...
I have checked the error log and there are some old registry entries which are causing the issue. Figuring out, how to delete those old entries from registry.
EDIT: Turns out, I had 2 autounattend.xml files.
One in root, which I was working on and one in sources\$oem$\$$\Panther\unattend folder which windows was picking up and causing errors.
