I'm facing an issue where after the Windows 8 OS deployment stage of a scripted install occurs to systems (w/ wireless adapters) the initial auto login into Windows requires that the user MANUALLY skips or selects a wireless network to connect to. This forced interaction is halting my scripted installations before postinstall tasks can run. How do I automatically acknowledge this stage of the initial login so that my scripted installs can be completely unattended?

Thanks in advance

  • To all, when I use this: <HideWirelessSetupInOOBE>true</HideWirelessSetupInOOBE>
    once the scripted install completes, I don't have IE shortcuts (on tiles or on desktop). if I remove that line and run the scripted install again, I do have them.
