Some of those are already available, by the way would you know how to make it skip the product key screen completely? Thanks.

Seriously... when i start the removal request stuff for 1.4.0 i will be adding as much as possible. Although i bet someone will request WinSXS which i think is impossible :P

I attached my unattended xml, this one skips the user AND key activation, just drops to a unactivated administrator desktop (confirmed).

My bad, was just adding stuff from the top of my head without reading to much, don't rush it good releases are better than broken ones.

Just to confirm...

<SkipAutoActivation>true</SkipAutoActivation>

That skips asking for key?

P.S. Don't worry about double posting, if i see double posting i usually just merge.

As long as the demo key is correct, I don't know whether the following is needed, but I guess it couldn't hurt either.

<ProductKey>

<Key>AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA-AAAAA</Key>

<WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>

</ProductKey>

Thanks, i'll add these when i can, when i start requests this will be the first thing i will do. Input locales are gonna be tough :D

Guess they should be enumerable from some source on the image, haven't got a multi language disk here, but I'll try when I get back tomorrow.

Hi,

Here is my unattended xml (with some fake names in it). It just needs two user inputs: the drive/partition where to install and later on the computer name.

As you can see it is a bit less complicated than the one generated by RT7Lite (BTW my old RT7Lite xml was nearly identical to the one of GieltjE).

Tip: the xml can always be validated by using Windows System Image Manager (part of WAIK)

Regards, Eric666

How to encrypt the Administrator and User passwords in Unattended.xml ?

I used the "Unattend Creator", but it reveals the passwords in the created xml file...

I'm not sure how, it was easier just to make it plain text.

i suppose that's only possible with the WAIK 7 (?)

(or at least, it's possible by using it, that's how i encrypted mine)

Actually password isnt encrypted, its a simple hash value that can be easily cracked...so why bother?

Also it can be done only via WAIK and Sysprep, at least from my knowlege.

Done these, you may notice your request for input locale, keyboard, etc.. may be missing. I've just moved it to another thread which also requested it. Closing the thread now.

P.S. Still plain text.

EDIT: Had to re-open due to Skip Auto activate not working (only works if key is provided).

Yes, but you can skip it by providing "default keys" :

Actually I dont know another way to skip product key, besides providing "default" during setup... :rolleyes:
