    Automate just OOBE setup pass of Windows 10 with Autounattend.xml


    Dear Community,

    I am currently trying to find out if it is possible to automate just the OOBE setup pass of Windows 10 with an Autounattend.xml file.

    In this particular use case, the devices are delievered with a preinstalled Windows 10 Pro version 1803. The goal is to use the preinstalled OEM image. When startging the devices for the first time, they start with OOBE. We want to automate these steps. The idea was to create an answer file which just holds parameters for the oobeSystem pass and let the resulting Autounattend.xml file be consumed from a removable USB drive.

    Does somebody have experience with a similar use case? Will Windows 10 still search for an Autounattend.xml file just before entering the oobeSystem Pass? Or is an Autounattend .xml just usable when going trough all configurationen passes of Windows?

    The Microsoft documentation was no help for me regarding this particular question.

    Best regards,
    Manuel

    :)

    Fully Automate Windows 10 installation with autounattend

    Good Morning,

    I am currently working on developing and autounattend file for Windows 10 Enterprise edition for my organization. This is my first autounattend file. I am using the WSIM to develop the file. It works with a few exceptions. These exceptions greatly hinder
    our installation process.

    The goal is to not have to touch the computer during the installation process. I still have to choose the OS and once the install is complete I have to choose the network discovery. This will not work for us.

    Does anyone know what components handle these two settings. I have supplied the Product Key in amd64_Microsoft-Windows-Shell_Setup_Neutral\imageInstall\OSImage\InstallFrom\MetaData [Key="/image/name"]<Product Key> <Value>Windows 10


    Automate just OOBE setup pass of Windows 10 with Autounattend.xml 26a8bad4-b226-4f23-bbb1-b139eeefdf49.jpg


    I have tried the following:

    With product key |[Key="/image/name"]<Product Key> <Value>Windows 10

    Without the product key [Key="/image/name"]<Product Key> <Value>Windows 10

    Both with and without the product Key [Key="/image/description"]<Product Key> <Value>Windows 10 <-- Parsing fails

    I really need my answer file to provide this information so that we do not have to watch over the computer during the installation process.

    We also need the Network discovery to be turned off in the answer file so that the screen does not appear.

    For this I have set the following:

    7 oobe System\amd65_Microsoft-Windows Shell Setup_neutral\OOBE\

    <HideEULAPage> True

    <HideLocalAccountScreen> True

    <HideOEMRegistrationScreen> Trure

    <Hide WirelessSetupinOOBE> True

    <ProtectYourPC> 3

    <SkipMachineOOBE> True <-- Though Deprecated

    Does anyone have any advice on how to make my windows 10 install completely unattended.

    Thank You,

    M

    Problems after enabling built-in administrator account


    It's better to completely automate OOBE, bypassing all OOBE dialogs simply by taking care of them in answer file. See this tutorial, Step Three shows how to prepare unattend.xml for automated OOBE: Create media for automated unattended install of Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials
