  1. Hi everybody, Here is My scenario, I have WDS running on a Server 2008 R2 Machine, and have been succesfully imaging XP machines for a while now. I am trying to setup a Windows 7 amd64 image on it, and it doesn't appear to like my unattend.xml, ie, it doesn't get the language options that I have set in the unattend,.xml, it doesn't automatically load the right image off WDS, which is also specified in the unattend.xml etc. The thing that I think may be causing the problem is that the Boot image I am using in WDS is the x86 boot image that we have been using to image the XP machines. Do I need to create an amd64 boot image for it to recognise the amd64 commands in the unattend.xml? The Windows 7 image itself works fine, but for simplicity sake, because I'm going to have to do over 100 of these in the coming months, I would prefer to make it and unattended installation. This has been driving me nuts the last couple of days. Edit, here is my WDSclientunattend.xml <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <DiskConfiguration> <Disk wcm:action="modify"> <ModifyPartitions> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="modify"> <Active>true</Active> <Extend>false</Extend> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>SysVol1</Label> <Order>1</Order> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> </ModifyPartitions> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk> </Disk> <WillShowUI>onerror</WillShowUI> </DiskConfiguration> <WindowsDeploymentServices> <ImageSelection> <InstallImage> <Filename>XT3_WIM.wim</Filename> <ImageGroup>Consultant_Laptop</ImageGroup> <ImageName>XT3_WIM</ImageName> </InstallImage> <InstallTo> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </InstallTo> </ImageSelection> <Login> <Credentials> <Domain>Domain.com</Domain> <Password>Password</Password> <Username>Username</Username> </Credentials> </Login> </WindowsDeploymentServices> </component> </settings> </unattend> -Mark
