I had a sysprep file that worked fine with windows 7 ent. However I installed chinese simplified and now after the sysprep runs it comes up with a box to choose english or chinese. I have it set to use en-au for input lang. Is there somewhere else I have to change or add somthing new? thanks

Also I keep getting prompted for which type of network this is which is also set in the answer file. See below for XML

what i ended up doing is taking all the language packs available from windows updates or i found a list here http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/07/26/download-windows-7-rtm-32-bit-x86-and-64-bit-x64-mui-language-packs-gold-msdntechnet-iso/

I have taken the lp.cab files made when you run each language setup exe, renamed each one and then after the machine has installed after sysprep I run the lpksetup.exe /i * c:\langpackspath which installs the languages. the only thing I think required after that is to add the HKCU\Keyboard layout reg keys for the language bar.
