How to create an unattended file for Windows 7

First thing you need to do is download the deployment kit.

It can be downloaded here.

After installing it you need to insert the Windows 7 CD/media.  This can be done with any operating system but you need to have the media for each specific OS.

Open the CD and inside the Sources directory there will be a file called Install.wim.  Copy that to a location that you will remember.

Open Windows System Image Manager

Then select File -> Select Windows Image -> Navigate to where you saved the Install.wim -> click Select.

It will say that you don't have a catalog.  That's fine, just click Yes and it'll create one for you.

After it completes, select File -> New Answer File.

Now we are ready to start building the Answer file.
