Windows 8 Pre install

    Question

  • Hi

    I used the sample Windows 8 Autounattend.xml and modified the OEM details and Key only. It stops at the location with UK where I cant change it, if I leave at UK it then fails at the Create Partitions stating it cant partition the drive. Can some one please supply 4 basic config files for Windows 8 64bit and Windows 8 Pro 64 bit (BIOS and UEFI), I just want my company details and 1 hard drive partition (plus required system volumes)
