    I am trying to move user directories when doing a clean install of windows Pro. During the OOBE boot, I get this error:
    Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [C:\Windows\Panther\unattend.xml] for pass [oobe]. The setting specified in the error file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup].

    Here is the answer file(product key X'ed out):
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
        <settings pass="oobeSystem">
            <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="" xmlns:xsi="">
        <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:c:/installsource/install.wim#Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />
