    I don't know why but I'm getting error: Windows setup encountered un internal error while loading or searching for unattend answer file
    Will try to rebuild iso, but getting too tired. Tried installing with different autounattend files for about 30 times today only. Tried that 200 times this week.......baby needs some rest/sleep :throw:
    Thanks

    open the wim file in Windows Image Manager, then open the answer file and do a verification 'by validate the answer file" then you should see the errors in the right lower pane. Register the new answer file and check again.;)

    Berti, back in the xp days of integrating I fooled around with auto-logon stuff using the unattend...

    I am completely speculating, but perhaps you might need to specify a password as well...
    I seem to remember xp requiring a password for auto-logon with no user creation...
    I'm probably mis-understanding it as it was many years ago and I didn't really know what I was doing...

    Thanks Murphy78.
    In message #9 (above yours) I tried to say my 2 problems mentioned on the first post (and in the pm I sent you) are SOLVED and now it starts directly to the user account created before sysprep. No more create user account at the end of win install. (and no more "select the operating system..... at the beginning)

    there are 2 other things I couldn't fix:
    automate "use express settings" option at the end of windows install
    get the right Date, time, number format

    Thanks coleoptere2007 for replying.
    In fact I'm trying to change the user settings through xml 1)- get the right Date, time, number format of the user account, not that of the lock-screen but I'll try it and see what happens.
    2) automate/bypass "use express settings" option at the end of windows install

    Thanks

    VER | findstr /l "6.2." > nul
    IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 goto :8
    
    VER | findstr /l "6.1." > nul
    IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 goto :7
    
    VER | findstr /l "6.0." > nul
    IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 goto :Vista
    
    
    :7
    Echo Win7
    %~dp0"Windows Loader.exe" /silent /preactivate
    reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce /f /v "9-Firstlogon" /d "%WinDir%\Setup\Firstlogon\Firstlogon.exe"
    attrib -R -A -S -H *.*
    SHUTDOWN /R /T 5
    RMDIR /S /Q "%WINDIR%\Setup\Scripts"
    goto :end
    
    :Vista
    Echo Vista
    %~dp0"Windows Loader.exe" /silent /preactivate
    reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce /f /v "9-Firstlogon" /d "%WinDir%\Setup\Firstlogon\Firstlogon.exe"
