How to use our existing unattend answer file with K2000
If I push our base image through K2000 and use the KACE Sysprep creator wizard to create an answer file, it will install. However if I push it and try to use the pre-existing unattended answer file that our group has created it will fail when it gets to the point of creating the multiple partitions we use. Running the install of this image with our answer file from a USB drive works properly.
During the installation via K2000 we get a message that Windows could not create a partition because an error occurred applying the answer files disk configuration setting, error code: 0x80042565.
The tech that created this answer file said we need to use it to create GPT partitions. Will using the KACE Sysprep wizard and post install tasks to create UEFI partitions allow us to do the same thing?

The error could be the pxe kbe you are using is the wrong type. If the KBE is still legacy for pxe boot you will get this error.
Is the boot stick that works a uefi boot stick?
Is your dhcp set to legacy or uefi settings for pxe?
the create uefi partitions will do what you need as long as you are uefi pxe booting
the default script is, but you can modify how you want. Just take the settings you have in the answer file and create a script file instead
