    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

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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

    Windows 10 Pro - Unattended Asnwer File Error

    Problem with Windows 10 unattended answer file?

    It's PC that I have assembled myself from many differents parts.

    OS type is Windows 10 Pro.

    Current build is 16299.19

    This error message "Windows cannot read the <ProductKey> setting from the unattend answer file"
    appears almost at the beginning of the installation. That's the only error message I got.

    Is this info enough?
