Q: Windows could not apply the unattend answer file's <DiskConfiguration> setting - error code 0x80004005 during a new install of Windows 7

I am getting this error when I am install Windows 7: Windows could not format a partition on disk 0 - error code 0x80004005 during a new install of Windows 7. I have tried both Home Premium x64 and Enterprise x64. Both falling into the same error: I've removed all partition using gparted, and created a single primary partition, but I keep getting that error. Here is what happens:
PC boots from it, then goes to this screen: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_CsM3xxjCuyg/SWPEBv_Ry2I/AAAAAAAAAwQ/gWFT19O3ayw/s1600-h/install_step4.jpg

After that, it just starts copying files: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_CsM3xxjCuyg/SWPEO633HPI/AAAAAAAAAxA/D5BAJXjsqcY/s1600-h/install_step10.jpg

Which means I can't select which disk or partition I want Windows 7 on.
After about 5 seconds, the error pops up: Windows coupld not apply the unattend answer file's <DiskConfiguration> setting
 
Before I removed all partitions, I got this message during installation: Windows could not format a partition on disk 0 - error code 0x80004005
I then reboot back onto gparted, and find that the installation has copied 100mb onto the single partition. I've tried everything... I just tested installed XP, and that installed fine.
I've tried googling, but nothing has helped me thus far.

Preferred Solution: Windows could not apply the unattend answer file's <DiskConfiguration> setting - error code 0x80004005 during a new install of Windows 7

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.)

Please copy the DiskConfiguration part from your answer file to your post, we will see if there is any problems.
Can you manually format the disk during installation, but without using gparted? If it can be formatted manually, how does the unattended installation work when you try it again?Arthur Xie - MSFT

Hi there.

I'm trying to do a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate on a Sony Vaio AR41s via a DVD that I burned (slowest speed, was very careful about that) but upon starting the installation I get the error message:

Windows cannot parse the unattend answer file's <DiskConfiguration> setting

After closing this dialog box the laptop reboots and starts the process from scratch.

The Vaio has nothing on it as far as I'm aware (No OS found etc...) so I'm pretty sure this is as clean a install as I could do.

Here's the specs of the AR41s:
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 @ 2.2 GHz
Cache Memory - 4 MB - L2 Cache
RAM - DDR II SDRAM - 667 MHz - PC2-5300 ( 2 x 1 GB )
HDD - 2x 160 GB - Serial ATA-150 @ 5400 rpm
Optical Storage - BD-RE
GPU - NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT - 256 MB
OS - N/A

Running the 2x160GB HDDs in RAID 0 configuration. I tried de-RAID'ing the HDDs to see if that was the problem but I get the same result.

I've done some research on the internet and there's a lot of talk about xml files and whatnot but I can't see how I'm going to access anything given that there's nothing on the machine.

This is my first time trying to install a new OS on a machine so right now I'm a little lost.

If there's any other information that I should have given then do please mention it and I will edit my post accordingly.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

A:Windows cannot parse the unattend answer file's <DiskConfiguration>...

Hello farouche, welcome to Seven Forums!
Where did you get the Windows 7 ISO file you burned to DVD? This sounds like the real issue.

Leave the RAID broken, Windows 7 has issues with RAID anyway.

Check the PC BIOS to make sure it is set to ACHI and not RAID or IDE mode.

Then do a complete wipe secure erase to the entire single Hard Disk Drive (non RAID) and then create a 100GB partition to do the install to and start the clean install, have a thorough look through the information in these tutorials linked below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

A:Windows could not apply the unattend answer file's

Welcome to Seven Forums.

What is the installation media?
Download ISO, burn to DVD?
MS DVD?
USB key?

Upgrade or Full Retail version?

Are you choosing Upgrade or Custom when the install starts?

Did you mark the partition as Active?

You can try, delete the partition and install to the unallocated space.

Let us know how it's going.

Hi there,
I have a WDS server setup with images but I am having trouble with the unattend answer file bit. I always get an error after deploying in image during setup that it had trouble during the Speicalize phase. I believe it has something to do with the product
key most likely. I am wanting to skip product key entirely and leave it blank as the computers I'm deploying are all Lenovo business computers with the on board chip for activation.



The exact error I get is
"Windows could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup]"

I am able to get the computer up and running by going into REGEDIT, Childcompletion key and changing the value of "Setup" from 1 to 3 but I am wondering how I can prevent this entirely.

It's been a long time since I've worked on corp OS deployment so I'm not very experienced with Win7 and unattend/answer file operation. The goal I'm trying to get to is to customize several parts of an OS image (Win 7 Enterprise) for use in WDS by desktop

Create a local admin user accountapply a custom themeBypass the Windows Welcome screen
I'm using Windows SIM 6.1.7600.16385, opened the wim image and created an answer file with settings for PC name, locale, co name, reg user, etc- ideally everything the OS needs to boot into windows setup and complete without user intervention and without
launching windows welcome.
The answer file is named autounattend.xml and is copied to C:\windows\system32\sysprep on the target PC. I run sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:c:\windows\system32\sysprep\autounattend.xml .
Sysprep runs and displays messages saying it's processing generalize and perhaps one other section and then shuts the PC down. I then use WDS to capture the sysprep'd PC.
I boot a PC to WDS->WinPE and then pull down the image copied up earlier of the sysprep'd PC.
When Windows starts, it goes to the welcome screen. Further inspection reveals that nothing in the unattend file seems to have been applied to the PC. No user account created, no theme etc. The autounattend.xml file is still in the sysprep directory but

1st attempt. Adding Microsoft-Windows-Setup\UserData\ProductKey  and entering the product key there and setting WillShowUI to 'never'
2nd attempt. Adding Microsoft-Windows-Shell_Setup\ and entering the product key into the 'product key' field
3rd attempt. I had both options 1 & 2 added in the same answer file

A:Product Key Prompt - Unattended Install - Key supplied unattend.xml answer file

The Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup\ProductKey setting should be the one you need.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff715815(v=WS.10).aspx
Does the product key match the installed edition of Windows? (HomePremium)
Does it work if you add /generalize to the sysprep command? (C:\sysprep\sysprep /oobe /shutdown
/generalize /unattend:C:\sysprep\unattend.xml)  This would force the specialize pass to run again and consume the new setting.

Other information that might be useful:
   I never used WISM to create an unattend.xml nor did I attach one to the image.

Hello,

We're deploying Windows 8.1 to our public computing labs right now. This is the first time we're doing mass deployments with SCCM and we've run into the dreaded sysprep error just after applying the image. I think we've
narrowed this down to drivers but can't seem to figure it out. As an example, *almost none* of our hundreds of Optiplex 9010s will accept the image, yet hundreds of other models (Optiplex 7010, Optiplex 9020) accept the same image without issue.

I saw plenty of other posts about this error but I don't think this could be an unattend file or sysprep issue. Why would it work on some machines but not others?

Has anyone experienced a similar issue?

Thanks in advance!!

Sysprep could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup].

A:SCCM Windows 8.1 Deployment - Sysprep could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass specialize

For those with a similar issue - 

This turned out to be a driver problem for us, as suspected. In speaking with Premier Support, we dug through the CBS.log on a failed machine and confirmed it. In CBS, we traced the setup process to where drivers get installed and found a couple failures
(network, audio, etc.). Setup failed immediately after that process.

We were under the impression that our device drivers were current in SCCM, however they were not. In SCCM, we were ignoring driver import errors while using the Dell Command Deploy Utility for CABs. The errors were a result of the 2008 site server's inability
to recognize the newer Windows 8.1 drivers. We applied KB 2837108 and KB 2921916 to the site server and re-imported drivers. The sysprep error went away after this.

It appears the issue is related to the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter, which was evidently installed with a driver update around the first week of April.  Even though the adapter is disabled, it appears that any changes that you make to the
settings on your "normal" wireless adapter also need made on this one.  For me, this included enabling NetBIOS over TCP/IP (under IPv4 settings) and ensuring IPv6 was disabled.  Again, THE INTERFACE IS DISABLED, but these changes still
"magically" made my sharing work immediately.

I am responsible for building, updating, converting, building a sysprepped Windows 7 Pro master and deploy it on my company's computers. The final result is a build that includes full recovery capability, as most of these computers are used outside the office, some in remote locations.

To achieve this, i have a "master" VHD that was built with a genuine iso dowloaded from the Microsoft VLSC, and is regularly updated with Windows and specific software updates. I copy this VHD somewhere else, and Sysprep/shutdown the copy. This copy is mounted and captured to WIM
using DISM, and added drivers for all the many different Lenovo computer models and machine types we have out there, both Desktops and Laptops.

Having a "Master" WIM, and for the sake of keeping the Unattend.xml file as simple as possible, i use my own script to deploy the WIM to a Hard Drive with this configuration: System reserved+WinRE-Recovery-Windows7. The Recovery partition being before the Windows partition is due to the fact that this will be deployed to hard drives of sizes ranging from 80GB to 1TB+. This deployment is then imaged with other Imaging software, for quick deployment (things can get pretty hectic and i need to shave off as much time as possible). Before sending the computers to the field, they are booted, updated with any missing drivers/model specific OEM software and other specific licensed Software, last minute updates, specific user configuration, a...

Now hit the "OK" button in the error message box. If that does not work straight away, Restart the installation process.

This should work on a number of products.

That might be one of the silly things you're looking for. Other than that I won't be much help - you seem to have a firm grasp on the process, more so than I have.

Hi,
I am in charge of creating the Windows 7 image to deploy to about 150 computers, and I am about to lose my job because I can't get this going. We are not using a server, and because of our slow network, I would like to have everything on a flashdrive so we don't use the network. I installed WAIK and have been working on the AutoUnattend.xml (using SIM) for days, and I can't get it to work correctly. I created a 'Configuration Set' on my flash drive after finishing the AutoUnattend file, and have 2 out-of-box drivers, and 3 applications that I would like to install as a test (many more to come). It seems to pick up the AutoUnattend file, (doesn't ask me any questions) but when it finishes installing windows, none of my applications are installed, and when I restart after exiting from the Sysprep box, it asks me what language I want to use. Could anyone look at my AutoUnattend file and tell me what I am doing wrong?

It looks like the Configuration Set only created one folder named AutoUnattend_Files with my 2 drivers and my AutoUnattend.xml, but no $OEM$ Folders at all (where I put the applications). Maybe I should not have created the Configuration Set. I saved a copy of the unattend.xml file before I created the Configuration Set. Here is the AutoUnattend.xml after I created the Configuration Set:

1. Turn On your PC

2. Press F8 repeatedly and go to Safe Mode

3. Logon as per normal
(note: Administrator password is usually blank, but hopefully you know your password)

4. Allow the Desktop to fully load (answering "Yes" to continue into Safe Mode)
(note: This is just a long way of saying go to Safe Mode)

5. Click on Start - Run

6. Type in exactly: rundll32.exe syssetup,SetupOobeBnk (and click OK)
(note: one space, after "rundll32.exe " also the Oo are two letter o's in "oobe"; capitals and comma are important)

7. Wait a couple of seconds (although you will Not see any change)

8. Restart your PC normally (Start - Shutdown - Restart - Ok)

9. You are now able to go to Normal Mode again (For another 30 days !!!)

10.Once in Normal mode you can go to Add Remove Programs and Uninstall SP3 if you want.

Hi

A 0x80004005 is a typical warning indicating you have no Internet connection (while you may have) because the update service is having problems establishing a perfect two-way communication with Microsoft servers.

There are reasons, but first some questions:

Is your XP genuine and validated?
Do you run a proxy?
Any malware/viruses that you've scanned for recently? (best to do so)
Do you have a good network connection or is it patchy or with problems from the ISP side?

welcome to TSG.

Why are you using a third party defrag tool? The built-in windows one is generally better, as the OS is what has to access the data anyhow. Third party defraggers generally use a different algorithm and, as such, will make the OS think the drive is fragged. When that happens, the OS puts more strain on the HD.

As for O&O, however, I have no clue. If you can access it, maybe the app can't. Maybe change the path to the one on in program files. Again, I gotta state that I do not use third party defraggers.

Unfortunately I have disabled Windows Restore months ago, and the Restore Function in that f...ing program didn't work also. I've tried to reinstalled Windows (Upgrade).... things stayed the same.
The most effective solution is obvious : new installation of Windows, it means hundreds of my installed programs have to be reinstalled and reconfigured, what I absolutely don't want to, furthermore I'm quite busy now and even don't have time to do such a thing at least in the next 3 weeks.But I need Internet access, otherwise I can't carry out my work.

First a bit about me - so you know roughly how to pitch replies...

I used to be able to fly NT4, if only by the seat of my pants, but with 2k, I dropped out to Linux.

Now the problem: an in-law got his computer eaten by a virus, probably imported by one of his kids. I'm supposed to know about computers so the problem got onto my desk!

Starting point: I could log in as the guy (no p/w) but there was nothing on his desktop except the wallpaper.

I could run stuff, but only by the 3 finger salute, then using the 'Start new application' tab in task manager.

First off I ran the Norton anti-virus software he had installed. That found 4 infections, 3 that were automatically fixed, but the other one needed 'manual' intervention - so I intervened manually.

Next I re booted (same 'nothing' outcome) and ran the anti-virus again: nothing found that time, so I thought is was safe to move on.

I used the XP (Home, inc. SP3) CD to do a repair.

That seemed to work, but booting now requires a check on the (100% valid) product number.

This is where Catch 22 strikes!

On my network, I use explicit IPs - so I know what I'm trying to debug - but, I think, his system uses DHCP(? - automatic assignment of IP numbers), so it wasn't a big surprise when XP couldn't connect to M$. I took the box back to his place, in the hope that whatever settings he had had would work there.

No such luck. I still got the 0x80004005 error.

Welcome to Seven Forums mrfreezzzz. Is this a problem that just started, and do you know when if so? If it just started, you can try a System Restore point from just before it began

System Restore

If no help, try a clean start to see if there is a conflict

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

You might try and edit the tag information in WMP

Add or edit media information in Windows Media Player

If you can edit there, it likely isn't a file permission issue, but more an Explorer issue. You could try on another user and see if the problem occurs on that user as well. If it does not occur on another user, you could try and fix the corrupted user

Fix a corrupted user profile

If none of the above help, you should also run the System File Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Did you make any changes just before the problem began? Installed any new programs? Ran any optimization programs, etc?

Would you be able to copy the file to another windows 7 PC and see if you can edit it there?

A Repair Install is also an option if the problem exists on all users, and nothing else helps.
