Hello,

I am deploying win11 with an unattend.xml file. I have e.g. a danish or brazilian ISO and set the inputlocale da-dk or pt-BR in the unattend file:

            <SetupUILanguage>

                <UILanguage>da-DK</UILanguage>

            </SetupUILanguage>

            <InputLocale>da-DK</InputLocale>

            <SystemLocale>da-DK</SystemLocale>

            <UILanguage>da-DK</UILanguage>

            <UserLocale>da-DK</UserLocale>

Problem is, that after the installation is completed and windows is shown the keyboard layout is on both system en-us.

The logs say that the inputlocale en-us is successfully applied. Why? From where is this setting applied?

With other languages like german or czech the keyboard layout (de-de, cs-cz) is successfully applied. Also with windows 10 there was no problem.

If i additionally set the keyboard layout in OOBE section, e.g. da-dk is applied additionally to en-us. Is this a bug in some languages with win11 or do I miss sth else?

en-us

    Hello there,

    Windows Setup will automatically search for answer files in certain locations, or you can specify an unattend file to use by using the /unattend: option when running Windows Setup (setup.exe).

    You may check your unattend.xml file with the Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup:

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
