Unattended Windows Setup Reference

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Vista

The Windows® Unattended Setup Reference provides a complete listing of all the settings that you can use to automate the configuration and the deployment of Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows® 8, Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, Windows Server® 2012, Windows Server® 2008 R2, and Windows Server® 2008.

The Windows® Unattended Setup Reference is organized by Windows components and Windows packages, in the same order that the Windows System Image Manager (Windows SIM) tool displays each Windows component and package.

Each Windows component includes settings that can be used to create an unattended-installation answer file. Each setting in a component is listed in its own individual topic. If an element contains a value, valid value types are described and XML examples are given.

Information about how to use Windows SIM and other deployment tools is available in the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) Technical Reference.
