Preferred Solution: autounattend.xml error in Windows PE

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey,
I have created a autounattend.xml file using the Windows System Image Manager. When validating, everything comes back clean. However, when deploying it ends up failing with the message in the second set
I am deploying using this method to an Intel Compute Stick:
Use Rufus to "install" Windows iso to a Bootable USB drive.Drop autounattend.xml into the root of the USB driveBoot USB device, let the software do it's thing.
What actually happens:
Use Rufus to "install" Windows iso to a Bootable USB drive.Drop autounattend.xml into the root of the USB driveAfter a few minutes, Windows Setup complains: "Windows could not collect information for [OSImage] since the specified image file [D:\Sources\] does not exist

A few things about this:
I never specify D:\Sources anywhere in my autounattend.xmlAuto

I was not planning on doing this with Sysprep, I was planning on dropping the autounattend.xml file directly on to the root of the USB drive and let it install the image automatically rather than booting through WDS or something similar.

I have been reading Windows 10 Image - Customize in Audit Mode with Sysprep - Windows 10 Forums in case sysprep is the absolutely best way though.

So I've been asked to research Win7 images and the best way to create and deploy them. We don't have MDT 2010 up yet, so I'm stuck using a custom install.wim along w/ the unattend.xml file.

Question #1

How can you stop Win7 OOBE welcome screen from making you create a local user account? After Win7 finishes its text based setup, I want it to boot into Windows as Admin bypassing the welcome screen (create user/change PC name). This way desktop support can -

1. Change the PC name
2. Join the domain, reboot, and be done
3. End user logs in, process complete

There is no need for them to do a Audit mode w/ reboot. The domain accounts already exist. I don't want local users being created.

In Win XP you could edit the sysprep.inf so that you had -

[GuiUnattended]
AutoLogon=Yes
AutoLogonCount=1

Which would allow you to log in as admin the first time after sysprep, join the domain, etc. How do you do this w/ Win7? I can only get it to log in as admin in systemAudit mode, I want to do it in OOBE.

Hopefully I just missed something. Like I said, I'm new to automating Win7 setup.

A:Windows 7 AutoUnattend.xml - User & PC Name

I was able to successfully solve this exact problem by looking at this website:

Sysprep a Windows 7 Machine

With the unattend.xml file that I have, it prompts for a PC name first thing, then creates the local administrator account and automatically logs in one time, joins to the domain via my JOINDOMAIN.VBS script, installs our AntiVirus program, installs out network management agent, and activates windows automatically with KMS. Then it ends by initiating a system reboot with a 10 minute timeout clock. That way if an admin has to leave the machine during the imaging process, it won't stay logged in to the local admin account. So what you are asking about is definitely possible. Just make sure your unattend.xml file is built correctly.

My issue is that when I copy the autounattand file onto the root of usb drive that contains all the setup folders/files, setup does not seem to detect the file and stalls at the very first choice of install language, however...when I take the very same answer

Hi, all just want some help on why the Autounattend.xml file that I have attached is not working.
It is designed to simply generate a random computer name and join the computer to the relevant 2008-R2 active directory domain specified during the OOBE setup process.
I have placed it in the root of OS drive (Aka C:\) and specified it as follows:

sysprep.exe /oobe /shutdown /quiet /unattend:C:\Autounattend.xml
When I start the computer back up, it is neither on the domain nor is the computer name changed and randomnized. The domain user account specified in the Autounattend.xml has permissions to create and delete computer objects.
What is wrong with what I am doing?

Hi!
I'm about to prepare some OEM computers and have made a simple unattend.xml-file with help from the answering file sample from WAIK, but I can't get it to work properly.

I have copied the file to the root directory of an USB drive and it seemes like the installation program is reading the file (e.g. I don't have to specify an computer name when finalizing the installation) but it's not as automated that I would like it to be. I have to choose wich Windows version to install (basic, HP etc.), the disk partitions listed in the xml-file is not automated (I have to choose wich drive to use for installation), I need to confirm the license agreement, choose date and time options.

What can be wrong? I would like a clean, working autounattend.xml-file that automatically installs and also temporarily activates the administrator account so I can install updates, drivers and such and then seal everything up with sysprep.

I have created an automatted installation for Windows 7 via AIK and I am setting the UserLocale, UILangauge and Inputlocale for specific regions. I then saw this aritcle furthest below (see: "Apply regional and language settings to reserved accounts") and was
wondering if there are other autounattend.xml paramters that also need to be set to ensure these "reservered accounts" are set for the proper regions.
Please note: I want to keep the base language for Windows and the SQL Collation set to en-US, just the default users regional settings (UserLocale?), UI (UILanguage?) and keyboard (InputLocale?) settings need to be country specific.
In my Autounatted.xml file I have all the Locale settings set for en-US in the 1 windowsPE section. I believe these only apply for the actual installation process and not the final Windows deployed image. Is that correct?
I believe I need to set the locale setting in either the 4 specialized or 7 oodesystem pass to affect the installed system.
So to achieve, my desired resule, OS & SQL using a base en_US language and the default User, UI, and keyboard langauge being country specific, I would set the Microsoft-Windows-Internationas-Core_neutral settings as follows:
InputLocale to the specific country such as da-DK (Denmark)

I have a scenario where system can have more than one storage controllers. The first storage controller has x amount of disks and is unfortunately enumerated before the controller that has the disk I want to install to. So,
the install disk number is never fixed nor is it ever guaranteed to be zero, unless I take the controller and/or disks offline during the install. This workaround is really not desirable and I am wondering if anyone has a way of installing to a specific disk.
Not being able to install to any disk sort of defeats the purpose of having this field at all. Without someway to dynamically fetch the disk number, it looks like this will only works if the DiskId is guaranteed to be zero such
as on a system with one disk. 

I have seen an example from many years ago where it was possible to get the DiskId by running a vbs script like getDiskId.vbs then the autounattend.xml would look like something along those lines. But, it wasn't clear whether
that's still applicable and whether anyone has gotten that to work.

So my laptop has a bunch of problems. It started out as a virus infection then I found out more problems.

First of all, thank you to Broni for directing me to the thread that tells me to run DSS.

I can't run a systems restore. I get the 0x800700B7 error. As well, Systems Restore says that I've never had a Systems Restore done before, which I think is odd, because I recall seeing Systems Restores created last time I checked (maybe a year ago?)

I also can't turn on Windows Firewall. I get the "Windows can't start the Mpssvc" message.

Hello everyone,
I recently had a virus on my Windows xp computer (one of those ones that pretends to be an anti-virus program telling you your computer is infected). Before I had the chance to remove it I found I was unable to start up my computer. Instead of the usual user login screen I had a black screen with this message:

"lsass.exe - Application Error". The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on ok to terminate the application

Once I click okay nothing happens, the screen just remains blank. I have tried going into safe mode (F8 key) but it doesn?t seem to work. I hold the button down but the computer just loads up like normal and goes onto the dreaded black screen.

I have done some quick research and found that the problem is either the OS is broken, or a virus is pretending the OS is broken. Either way I have no idea what to do.

Any help is much appreciated. Please note however I am pretty clueless when it comes to computers, thus please try to assume as little prior knowledge as is reasonably possible and include simple step by step instructions if you can. I apologise for my ignorance.

If you need any further information let me know. Note as I have no laptop currently I will have to wait until I am in work to respond.

Thanks in advance!

Hi All

Some of our client machine(Windows7) is not taking update from WSUS server. When we verified the WindowsUpdate logs, we could see that WU client version is changed to 7.6.7600.256 from 7.5.7601.17514.Our WSUS server is running with version WSUS 3.0 SP1 on windows 2003 server. So we suspect this may be the reason windows 7 machines is getting the error message 'Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x800b0001' when it try to get the update from WSUS server.

So please suggest any steps to change the WU client version on windows 7 back to 7.5.7601.17514

Hi Microsoft,
I've been struggling with this problem for a while now.  When a steam games runs for the first time, it does a dx setup (I presume checking your dx installed files and replacing/updating
as necessary).  Well seeing I have Win 7 64 bit and keep it up to date with automatic updates, it should be right up there for DirectX right?  Well I keep getting the recurring problem with a file called xactengine2_4.dll that gives the following
error whenever one of these dx setup instances run.  "The file xactengine 2_4.dll is not designed to run on windows or contains an error."  Then it tells me to install from original media or seek help from a sysad.
Well I hunted around and found a web installer for dx from you guys, downloaded and ran it, only to get the very same error message.  I found the file in the .cab and manally
replaced the one in my windows/system32/ folder but it didn't help.  I found a reference to a similar error message that asked the user to run the SFC /Scannow command, which I did, and it found and repaired some corrupted files.  Still no help.
I really don't know what to try next.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I have been having some recurring problems with the attempts to install some automatic windows updates.

Security Update for Microsoft Office Acess 2007
Security Update for Microsoft Office Outlook Junk Email Filter

I am not able to install these updates, maybe any other updates in general. After attempting the install the following install window says, "Windows Update encountered an unknown error." Next to it an error code 80070643. Microsoft provides a solution to the problem, by re-installing Microsoft NET. Framework. They also provide a link to the program NET. Framework cleanup tool that enables you to uninstall NET. Framework, and it's components.

I followed Microsoft's instructions to solve the issue, though I've been put at a standstill. I have used the NET. Framework Cleanup tool to uninstall NET. Framework and it's components (states that it uninstalls all versions, 1.1 SP1 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5.) Then afterwards instructed to reinstall NET. Framework, specifically in an order, 3.5 then, 1.1, then 1.1 SP1. I start with 3.5, then as the installation starts it says that to contiunue installation I must turn off or on windows features in the Control Panel. I do so and turn off all Windows features. Then continue and it again states to turn off features in the Control Panel.

I wasn't able to continue the process, and I am also concerned that this is the same error that made me unable to install Microsoft Security Essentials, (as t... Read more

Hiya, this problem started when I encountered "generic host process for win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close". I figured I could have a virus or something, so I rebooted to run some scans in safe mode. Problem is, when I attempted to go into safe mode, it flashed the blue screen and reset.
Also this happens when I try and disable auto reset on BSOD ( so I just don't change it)
"-System control panel applet- if the page file on volume C: has an initial size of less then 0 megabytes, then the system may not be able to create a debugging information file if a STOP error occurs. Continue anyways?"

After the reset, I was given 2 options I haven't seen before:
"Windows XP professional" -> everything starts normally
and
"Windows (default)" -> gives me a "hal.dll is corrupted" error

I did my scans on normal windows (since safemode is giving me BSOD) and I didn't find any viruses/mal/spyware.
I used these for scanning: Microsoft security essentials, malwarebytes, and spybot.

After some google searches, I tried to update windows via ***www.\/\/indowsupdate.com but recieved an error message like I didn't have the internet. I read somewhere to add it to the "trusted websites" and I did, but didn't change anything.

Hey guys

Quick summary, the installation of Norton SystemWorks froze on my comp when i was instaling it, so i cancelled it and pretty much forgot about it. When i rebooted a few days later Windows wouldnt load.

I did some reading (correct me if i'm wrong) and i found out it was becasue of Norton GoBack ( i didnt even want it on my system in teh first place). It alters your boot files and i'm guessing when it froze it was in the prosses of changing those files.

So far i've tried everthing I could and had no luck fixing it.
I tried the NOrton fix (A file that unInstalles go back from dos) but it didnt work since the installation was not complete in the first place.

I tried plugging it onto another system as a Slave but it doesnt even show up : /

Hello there!

I'm currently running Vista on my Compaq laptop. Unfortunately (long story) my key for Avast Antivirus expired in January 09 and I was unable to input the key code until September 09, so I guess the virus found it's way onto my computer during that time.
I ran a scan after finaly inputting the key and Avast found several infected items. Some could be removed, but since that scan I've been getting the following message after starting-up the laptop:-

Error loading C:/Windows/TEMP/msxm192z.dll

Also, since the initial scan and appearance of this error message I've been having various problems -
* Laptop running slow
* Media player not running (won't open/run) - cannot play any music!
* Photo Gallery icon blank and won't open - cannot access my photos!

I've since uninstalled Avast and installed a free version of AVG. Neither seem to be able to get rid of this virus.

I also followed the advice given to another member of this forum. I downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
This is the MBAM report from the scan (which picked up several infected items):-

RELEVANCY SCORE 27.2

I have been having problems installing 8 updates since early May 2012. I am getting the error code in the title line.

The updates are:

[LIST][*]Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596672)[*]Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596792)[*]Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596880)[*]Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2597162)[*]Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2597969)[*]Security Update for Microsoft Office Excel 2007 (KB2597161)[*]Security Update for Microsoft Office Word 2007 (KB2596917)[*]Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Junk Email Filter (KB2687267)

I have run FixIt, but to no avail. I have also turned off services and rebooted and ran Windows Update and still got this error.

Do I need to just skip these updates, or somehow troubleshoot this and fix it. If I need to fix it, I need help.

Regards, and thanks.
