    </unattend>

    after I run "syspre.exe /oobe /generalize /shutdown /unattend:c:\autounattend.xml" , there is no errors .

    but after sysprep done, I start up the system, then the system pop up an erroe like this :

        Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [C:\Windows\Panther\unattend.xml] for pass [oobeSystem].The settings specified in the answer file can not be applied.The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup] .

    I find some information on from the internet,someone said I should change password value to <PlainText>true</PlainText> and I tried but it did not work.

    This problem confused me for several days , anyone can help me ?

    Thank you !

  • I have no idea!

    This xml was created by SIM.

    And did you mean I can delete <servicing></servicing>  and try again ?
