    Hey everyone,

    I'm creating a unattended installation for Windows 7 x32 and x64. Basically, I wanted to create an unattended install answer file and stick it on a usb along with the windows 7 builds. When it loads up, I just select the Windows version I want and come back to it when it is done. There is just one part where it gets stuck, waiting for user input and its at the end of the installation. Just near the end of the configuration it asks for a product key even though I have specified to skip product key.

    I have also tried moving the location of product key from MS Shell Setup to OOBE; I have tried without a product key entered, and tried with a KMS key. The answer file is called "autounattend.xml" so I'm not too sure where its going wrong.

    This is my answer file at the moment:
    *Note: I had to remove the http links in the xml because I'm unable to post them. They are, however, in the xml.
