Windows 7: Specify catalog in Autounattend.xml?

26 Apr 2011   #1

Specify catalog in Autounattend.xml?

Hey, I'm sure this has been brought up before. But I've been digging through the forums and google, etc.

There are several ways to specify which wim/catalog to install from, like Sysprep.xml, but I'm trying to create an unattended setup from USB. The issue is every example I've seen specifies a drive path for the catalog location like the following:

<cpifflineImage cpi:source="catalog:C:\sources\install_Windows 7 ULTIMATE.clg" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
However this can be used on various systems so the drive letter of the media can change, so I tried just "\sources\install_Windows 7 ULTIMATE.clg" but it didn't work.
