    Seeing as I'm not telepathic, no. Perhaps you could provide some information on the actual error you get?

        Anything useful here:

        You need two files:
        unattend -- instructions to the WinPE Image
        sysprep -- instructions on what settings to apply

        You appear to be missing the first one from your description

          There are also requirements on the file path for sysprep.inf which must be followed, if you get it wrong it won't work.
