Modify the code to your needs and save the file as AutoUnattend.xml in the root of your installation disc.
32-bit
Code:

Yes. Open the sources folder and create the folder structure:
Code:
sources
  $OEM$
    $$
That is $OEM$ inside sources, $$ inside $OEM$. The $$ folder content will be copied to Windows folder during installation. You can create any subfolders inside $$, like "OEM" to match the answer file example.

this is terrible.!! :cry: i donno how to create and edit xml files... :p :p
The truly terrible thing is that you don't Google...
