Windows 8 not applying unattend settings. RRS feed

  • Question

  • OS is applied then Windows 8 boots up like oobe, the rest of the task sequence doesnt even run. Our Windows 7 images work and go through the entire task sequence. We used the same TS after we imported a Windows 8 image but the build process stops after the OS is applied.

  • Are you using Windows 8.1 or WIndows 8

    Please check the MDT 2013 release notes, you may need to copy the unattend*xml.6.2 template files to unattend*xml.6.3 to install Windows 8.1.

    Otherwise, verify that you ran sysprep on your images.

    IF all else fails, check the panther logs to ensure that windows is parsing the c:\minint\unattend.xml file properly.
