    Yes

    Yes if you remove ei.cfg file and do not specify windows version to install in .xml you will have choice to select version manually when installing.

    No you only need to add ImageInstall if you are installing one edition.

    Code:
                <ImageInstall>
                    <OSImage>
                        <InstallFrom>
                            <MetaData wcm:action="add">
                                <Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key>
                                <Value>Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL</Value>
                            </MetaData>
                        </InstallFrom>
                    </OSImage>
                </ImageInstall>
    I pointed you to MSFN they are more experienced in Autounattend stuff you should ask these question there.

    I have never used CopyProfile simple answer is to try a windows installation it you will never find out just by asking questions. You insist asking on this forum when I advised you to go to MSFN forums there people are experienced in .xml files and Unattended Installs.

    Hi

    Before executing the sysprep /generalize /oobe /reboot /unattend:c:\CopyProfile.xml command, I have to run the "disk cleanup" utility of Windows to delete any unnecessary files or the generalize option already performs ‚Äč‚Äčthis work?

    Thanks

    Bye

    It's easier for you just to press CTRL+SHIFT+F3 at the login/new user screen. It will reboot into Audit mode. Or, use an autounattend that's setup to go straight into Audit mode.
    sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:c:\CopyProfile.xml
    Yes, sysprep will cleanup everything for you. If you copy CopyProfile.xml to c:\windows\panther\unattend.xml you don't need to even run the above, just tick generalize and shutdown...

    Therefore, the "Disk cleanup" utility is not necessary. Right?

    Thanks

    Bye
