The way that I have configured Keyboard Layouts is to configure them as you want on any user, and then extract the registry entries that are created.

For me they are HKCU\Keyboard Layout entries.

In the Scripted Install I have a batch file that loads the default user's registry:

reg load "HKU\AU_DEFAULT" %systemdrive%\users\default\ntuser.dat
reg import keyboardlayout.reg

Where keyboardlayout.reg is 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
  [HKEY_USERS\AU_DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout]
  [HKEY_USERS\AU_DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Preload] "1"="00000409" "2"="d0010409"
  [HKEY_USERS\AU_DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Substitutes] "d0010409"="00020409"
  [HKEY_USERS\AU_DEFAULT\Keyboard Layout\Toggle]
Your reg entries will be different based on the language settings.
