I am completely new to unattended installs, so please be patient. I am trying to disable UAC in the Windows 7 install. I am using the following unattended.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

I found the following information on these forums, but when I add it, it keeps failing in the final setup process. The codes is the following:

<RunSynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">
<Order>1</Order>
<Description>Disable_UAC</Description>
<Path>CMD /c REG.exe add &quot;HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System&quot; /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f</Path>
</RunSynchronousCommand>

Can someone add this code to the unattended.xml code I posted above. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Kurt

I put the code where you stated, and Windows 7 installed without any errors. However, it did not add the computer to the domain or create the administrator account. If I try logging on as the administrator, it stated that account was disabled on my first log on attempt. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for your help!!!

Corey,

I still have the same problem. Here is the unattended.xml I am using:

</settings>
</unattend>

It added the computer to the domain before I added the UAC. After putting the domain information in, it did not help. I cannot log on with domain credentials or the admin credentials. Any other suggestions?

Corey,

You helped me out with the above information when I was testing the appliance. Well, we bought it, and I am running into the same problem. This time, I am trying to do a Windows 7 64 bit install. Can you take a quick look at my code?

Kurt

Folks, please try and remember to use the CODE tags when posting lengthy text such as code extracts, log file content, XML/INI/INF extracts and so on? It makes threads a lot easier to read.
