    Here is an example of an unattend.xml file that you can use:

    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
      <settings pass="specialize">
        <component name="Microsoft-Windows-ServerManager-Client-Shell-Setup">
        <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup">
        <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Deployment-Tasks-Upgrade">
