    I don't know if there is a "friendly" (official) way of doing that. The solution last posted assumes you're going to enter some kind of key at all, which isn't what you're ideally looking for. vLite is the only option I know about, but although last I tested vLite had worked with earlier test versions of Windows 7, I'm not going to use such a relatively outdated application with a new OS version. Not to mention hopefully such a simple thing as only using vLite to do what you want it to do won't keep Windows 7 from installing service packs as they come out.

    That happened with Vista depending on what you did to the installation media with vLite. Can't get SP2 to install on some Vista PCs I customized.

    Is there an example x64 AutoUnattend.xml anywhere?

    Where should I pack the file afterwards?
