    Hi
    I have a Windows Deployment server with windows 10 image which works fine. Now I am trying to implement an answer file ( doing it with WindowsSystem Image manager) but keep getting prompt for language and locale although it is set in answer file. I have tried setting it in “1 windows PE” , “4 specialize” and “7 oobeSystem” components – still getting that prompt.
    I have read on few websites that login info should be set and I have tried that (set it in “7 oobeSystem” component ) – no luck, still getting language and location selection prompt.
    Here is my answer file:

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