Windows 7: Diskpartition problems using Autounattend.xml file during installation

Diskpartition problems using Autounattend.xml file during installation

Hello,

I'm trying to make my Autounattend.xml installation file. And I have one problem with this .xml file. And I have problems with disk partitioning. With autounattend file I create 3 partitions:
1: System Reserved partition 100mb
2: System partition where OS installed
3: Data partition.

And my problem is this: after install finished I have got not 2 disks, like System and Data disc, but also 1st partition with drive letter assigned, where is system reserved partition located. By default install without autounattend.xml this partition I have not drive letter assigned.

Here is autounattend file:

Code:
