I have to install a windows 2008 r2 with an unattend.xml file at boot. On VMWare i'm doing the following workflow:

  1. Create the Autounattend.xml with WAIK
  2. Create an iso with this file
  3. On VMware i create a new virtual machine
  4. On the first Virtual CD/DVD i add the Windows 2008 r2 iso
  5. On the second virtual CD/DVD i add the unattend.xml iso
  6. I boot the VM and the installation works fine.

On OpenStack, how can i add the unattend.xml file to the installation? Is there a way to add a second iso? (Using Havana at the moment)

Hi shilla, I have installed Havana. I have found "tricky" solution: Generate a Windows iso with inside the unattend.xml (using oscdimg.exe command), but i would prefere a simplier solution.. Thank you
