    Win8 Sysprep with Multilingual


    Hello Sir ,

    I have made Win8 Sysprep English Windows ... en-us and zh-hk and zh-cn (3 disks). Now I want to make it into one disk call Win8 Sysprep Multilingual. It's just like when you buy a Factory notebook and start the Windows 8. Before input user name , you can choose language of different countries.

    I found the Microsoft tutorial here : Step-by-Step: Multilingual Image Creation

    But I can't follow it's instruction and succeed , as it needs language packs (lp.cab). I copy the necessary lp.cab(s) from ADK ... C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.0\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Windows Preinstallation Environment\amd64\WinPE_OCs.

    But when applied , it says the lp.cab is incompatible.

    Please is there a step by step way to make this Win8 Sysprep Multilingual ?

    Thanks a lot.

    I believe those language packs are for winpe only.

    There are different language packs for the install.wim

    These Technet links may help as well.
    Add Multilingual Support to Windows Setup
    Add and Remove Language Packs Offline

    I notice that the tutorial you linked to is using the Windows 7 version- could that be why you're getting a error message that the (Windows 8 ADK) files you mention are incompatible?
