    Windows 10 Enterprise Answer File not using WinPE settings


    I downloaded Windows 10 Enterprise 1904 x64 (English) from the Microsoft Volume Licensing site. I am trying to create a USB drive that will select Enterprise as the version, wipe and partition the drive, answer the license agreement and then install Windows 10 and use the autounattend.xml file for the OOBE settings as well. I have followed the instructions on this site and built the autounattend.xml file (and placed it on the root of the USB drive that I use to install which I created from the Windows 10 ISO from the Microsoft VL site with Rufus) but with Windows 10 1903 it does not seem to read the settings for the WinPE settings to select Windows 10 Enterprise, partition the drive, and accept the EULA. If I do these steps manually the setup will continue and then will use the autounattend.xml file to finish the setup using the settings specified. I am wondering if something changed in the 1903 version? I did notice that the processor architecture for the section that sets the drive partitions is now set to wow64 instead of amd64 by the Windows System Image Manager but not sure if that has anything to do with it.

    Here were the instructions that I followed:

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Hi Ken. Your answer file suggests that you are a fellow Finland Swede. Welcome to Ten Forums!


    That error is because there's no generic product key or MAK key in your answer file. It is obligatory in autounattend.xml answer file, the one that takes care of first phase of Windows setup, partitioning and installing.

    Please see step 3.9 in following tutorial for how to add key in answer file: Create media for automated unattended install of Windows 10
