Autopilot Automatically configure keyboard YES, but still asked to do so

Sebastian Cerazy 306 Reputation points

Autopilot via json (that is "semi-autopilot IMO)

But anyway, these are the options in Profile:
Language (Region) English (United Kingdom)
Automatically configure keyboard Yes

As per this (and logic)

when Yes, then there should be no question asked, yet I get presented with keyboard selection screen

So what gives?

    Are you deploying Autopilot User-Driven or Self-Deploying?

    User-Driven Autopilot and the Language/Region setting will work only with Windows 10 version 2004

    Have you verified that you meet all the requirements?

    Here's the official documentation for self-deployment:

    Ofcourse I have verified, keyboard layout is the ONLY one that "fails" in the whole process

    If the Autopilot profile has been configured to automatically configure the language, locale, and keyboard layout, these OOBE screens should be skipped as long as Ethernet connectivity is available.

    And even the keyboard is configured (or selected) as United Kindom, it is still US (where the @ is on the 2 key !)

    We recommend to post your thread in Azure tag as you prepare the installation image on Azure and they should be more familiar with Azure.

    I do not prepare image on Azure. I run install from local USB with answer package created by Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (ICD) tool
    It is definitely Autopliot issue (and this awful moved forums does not have any sense to provide correct tags!)
