Windows 7: Unattend Install File Win 7 Computer Name

Unattend Install File Win 7 Computer Name

Hi there, I want to use a very simple unattend file to image Windows 7 and deploy with Ghost. My issue is that I need the install to PROMPT me for a computer name, THEN have it perform the Unattend Join to the Domain. I am hoping to only need the Specialize and OOBE passes, but if I need more fine - this is my only issue. If I let it select a randam PC name, then it joins the domain fine, but if I take out the computer "Tags" which seem to be the only way to get it to prompt, it has already tried to join the domain unsuccessfully. Please advise.. All over the net people are having this problem. I'm using the latest WAIK download. Here is my unattend file: THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP. I don't know why my file came out in backwards order, but I don't believe that matters, it still will do the specialize pass first. Thanks again - Maggie
