windows 11 unattend.xml

Hi,

I have been trying to install "windows 11" with winpe boot image with unattend.xml. However the installation is failing with the following error.

The product key entered does not match any of the windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.

I have a proper product key and putting it under Userdata section of unattend.xml as below.

       <UserData>
             <AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula>
             <ProductKey>
               <Key>XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX</Key>
               <WillShowUI>Never</WillShowUI>
            </ProductKey>
         </UserData>

The same procedure is working for "windows 10" OS. Any inputs in resolving this problem is highly appreciated.

Thanks
Srihari

Hi there,

If it is a product key error make sure it is retail and transferrable. If you are planning to deploy using the unattend.xml, I suggest you to test & Prepare your lab environment.

A USB drive, formatted with two partitions:

A PC that has:

A folder called C:\temp\lab with the following media downloaded:
Windows installation media
The most recent version of the Microsoft Office OPK
Language and Optional Features ISO
OPK App Update or Inbox Apps ISO
Windows ADK installer
WinPE ADK Add-on
Drivers for your image (if needed)
Deployment scripts
