When performing a scripted OS install (SOI) for a multi edition version of windows the SOI job is delayed while in automation waiting for user input to select the version of windows that will be installed.
No error but the SOI that should be fully unattended may stop at a prompt similar to the one below waiting for a version of the OS to be selected.
Full index info from the install DVD in F: drive using the following command.
dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:F:\sources\install.wim
Ghost Solution Suite 3.x (GSS)
Windows client OS
Scripted OS installation job.
The default unatend.XML files included with GSS are for sample purposes and do not include every option that Microsoft has for automating a windows installation.
The following link has information from Microsoft on how to address multi edition os installations. |
The default sample unattend.xml files that are included with GSS is found in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Altiris\eXpress\Deployment Server\Deploy path. There is a Vista_unattend.xml file here can be copied and used as a starting point for your SOI job. The following lines will need to be modified.
dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:D:\sources\install.wim
For the next example you will need to know the exact name of the selection for it to work. In our screen shots above "Windows 10 Enterprise" is what we would like to use so see the option below.
<Value>Windows 10 Enterprise</Value>
