    Guys please help!
    I have to create autounattend which would automate among others time zone and license key. I am a complete newbie and mine doesnt work as required. Could you please rectify this? My deadline at work is on Monday and I am really desperate. This is what I managed to create (unique info left blank intentionaly):

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    Hello, Welcome to Windows7Forums.com :)

    Have you tried the vLite application? It's used for pre-customizing Vista/7 installations.
    Download it.. you'll probably need to download the WAIK as well, but afterwards, load up the installation source and you can setup auto-unattended installation from there.. Though I'm unsure if you're able to preset the timezone, it has a large number of feautures.. I'd recommend not touching the image for anything past unattended installation setup as it is designed for Vista and doesn't fly well with Windows 7 images.

    vLite - Windows Vista configuration tool
