Create your own Autounattend.xml All-In-One (x86/amd64)

How to customize your Autounattend.xml AIO (x86/amd64) file ?

When you have created your own Windows 7 AIO with all or some wanted images on one install.wim image you can customize your Autounattend.xml file to suit your needs.

The first stage is to use Windows System Image Manager (WSIM) and create an Autounattend.xml file for example Windows 7 x86 Edition.

WSIM is included with AIK 3.0 for Windows 7.

http://www.microsoft...ls.aspx?id=5753

When all your customization are made, save the file.

After,open your Autounattend.xml file with notepad and duplicate the same lines for CPU amd64, changing only x86 to amd64 on each line.

Remove the last line indicating the location of the install.wim image source!

Don't forget to remove the ie.cfg file or rename as ei.cfg.bak located inside:C:\Folder_Location\sources\ei.cfg

A trial or valid key is needed for the installation and you can choose to install silently only one Operationg System (x86 or amd64).

If all the keys are integrated you don't need to add this value and you can choose to install the OS you want.

Autounattend.xml AIO 2 Images Ultimate (x86/amd64) (the names are fictitious and are used to demonstrate!)

A - Operating System Windows 7 Ultimate (x86/amd64) with one key.
Two dialog boxes will be displayed: OS to install and Disk Configuration.

You must use a key matching the Edition you want install.

You can download the folder SetProductKey.rar (fr-FR/en-US) containing more examples and a useful batch file to integrate the keys, here:

http://www.mediafire.../?uss84mzbqo91q

Note: Always check your new Autounattend.xml file with WSIM to see if errors!

Useful information:

*Edit: Thanks to report errors if you have.

@Myselfidem

Thank you for your clean and useful information.

I injected suitable product keys to my win7 images by using your setProductKey.cmd

The installation never asks product key. Customers or friends can enter their legal valid keys within 30 days :)

Unattended Windows Setup Reference for Windows 7.chm

AdministratorPassword

AdministratorPassword

specifies the administrator password and whether it is hidden in the unattended installation answer file.

To configure a blank administrator password for Windows® 7, write an empty string in Windows® System Image Manager (Windows SIM), by right-clicking the Value setting, and then selecting Write Empty String.

The built-in administrator account will be enabled with a blank password.

Caution: Creating a blank administrator password is a security risk.

By default, the built-in administrator account is disabled in all default clean installations.

You can enable the built-in administrator account during unattended installations, by setting the AutoLogon/Username to Administrator. This enables the built-in administrator account, even if a password is not specified in the AdministratorPassword setting.

If no values are set for the administrator password and Username is not set to Administrator, the administrator account is disabled.

Both Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup | Autologon and Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup | UserAccounts | AdministratorPassword sections are now needed for autologon in audit mode to work. Both of these settings should be added to the auditSystem configuration pass.

Note:

For Windows Server 2008, if you run the sysprep command with the generalize option, the built-in administrator account can no longer access any Encrypting File System (EFS)-encrypted files, personal certificates, and stored passwords for Web sites or network resources.

Note: The silent installation on VMware Virtual Machine may fails with only the built-in Administrator used, without Local account user!

*Edit: Added new examples about partition creation and Auto Logon inside SetProductKey.rar folder!

<ImageSelection>

<InstallImage>

<Filename>install.wim</Filename>

<ImageGroup>Windows 7</ImageGroup>

<ImageName>Windows 7 Enterprise</ImageName>

</InstallImage>

and

<SetupUILanguage>

<UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage>

</SetupUILanguage>

<InputLocale>en-US</InputLocale>

<SystemLocale>en-US</SystemLocale>

<UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage>

<UserLocale>en-US</UserLocale>

but i can't put them in the right place, so the image keeps giving me errors.. can you fix my autounattend please? what i need is:

It's always needed to choose the Windows 7 OS you want install because you have x86 and amd64 options!

I can read inside your post:

I'm trying to make a custom install of my windows 7 so1 homepremium x64

And you want install: <ImageName>Windows 7 Enterprise</ImageName> ???

First, you can use WSIM to create your Autounattend.xml file for Windows 7 x86.

After you can duplicate the passes and chek if there is errors with WSIM.

Example (adapt the values to your needs):

maybe i'm asking in the wrong place, but you seem to be more prepared than me.. sorry for my O.T... i don't need a AIO xml, just one for my homepremium x64...

I try to explain my needs:

starting from the autounattend.xml i attached in the post above, i need to:

1) auto select the "Windows 7 Sp1 64bit HomePremium" image without entering the key (it's a universal image for me and my friends, everyone has a different key)

2) setup the installation and the sistem in italian

3) set the Administrator autologon without password (no user creation after installing windows, just the Administrator)

everything else i don't need it (screen resolution, computer name etc.. just the xml i attached plus these three things).. thanks a lot for your help!

thanks a lot, will try it this night... you say that a key is required, but using the defaul windows homepremium key will my system say "30 days for activation" so i could put my own key in it after setup?

Yes, you can change the key after 30 days with your valid key, or use your valid key with your Autounattend.xml.

You can also find help here about Autounattend.xml files:

*Edit: After a new test, I see it's needed to create an User account to install silently Windows 7!!!

working like a charm now!

i'm trying to make some adjustments, will let you know...

edit: tried some adjustments, but i have a problem: i renamed the user to Carlese, and now i don't seem to have the Administrator privileges (for example it asks me to confirm my actions), how can i fix this? with the user you created it worked, with Carlese user it doesn't..

i also renamed the company name removing the - (from Frutto-Di-Mare to Frutto Di Mare), i hope it's not a problem..

another thig, could you add to my autounattend.xml the line to set the computer name? i don't know where to put it..

thanks for your kindness!

You can try this one...

<RegisteredOrganization>: this value seems to not support blank spaces (gaps)!!

About UAC: you must disable the UAC control if you don't want always show the dialog boxes even if you are Administrator!

The previous Autounattend.xml have Auto Logon for built-in Administrator!!!

ok, so i cannot change the name of Administrator in the autounattend.xml otherwise i'll lose the Admnistrator privileges..

I tried to install an image with the Administrator account and it works (it doesn't ask me to confirm my actions), but with your autounattend.xml in post #12 it creates 2 account, Administrator and Admin... how can I create only one? I can't find the option to specify the pc name "isi" in the autounattend.xml..

so with this last unattended i will be able to do things like the built in Administrator or will i have to disable UAC anyway? can i change the name "Carlese" for my friends or it will ruin the unattended?

as usual, copying the text gives me errors, can you attach the file? thanks!

You can change the name, of course...And yes you will have to disable the UAC anyway!!

oh ok... and what about the unattended in post #12? i see 2 accounts, Administrator (which works great without disabluing uac) and another one "Admin"... is there a way to delete the Admin and keep only the Administrator in the unattended? thanks for your patience

As I said the built-in Administrator Auto Logon first...But you have 2 accounts: built-in Administrator and Administrator User (Admin)!

*Edit: After many tests, I see we can't AutoLogon only with Built-in Administrator...

A User account is always needed...And the User account must have a different name: you can't use the same name, like Administrator..You will have installation failing issue!!

Fails using this value: <LogonCount>9999999</LogonCount>!!!

HOWEVER, we can have only One Administrator account whithout password, changing <LogonCount> value - and with the SAME USERNAME: Administrator:

The value for Computer Name was at the wrong place (used: Admin-PC as an example)!
