DS 6.9 build (wim) to SMP 7.1

Hi, we are in the process of merging IT departments where I work, I need to get builds from Deployment Solution 6.9 to deply from our 7.1 console.
The build job is made up of quite a few tasks, a script that uses diskpart then imagex to apply a wim then a script to copy drivers to the PC, then there are about 10 scripts that install apps (flash, java etc), and some scripts to configure some PC settings.

I've copied over the required files, updated the scripts to reference the new server, and it runs through the diskpart, imagex and driver bits ok, but I'm stuck trying to get the Symantec Management Agent to install so the rest of the tasks will run.

I found this http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO36080 but  wasn't quite sure about the Simple Process and didn't get a chance to test it. So I copy "\\smpserver\NSCap\bin\Win32\X86\NS Client Installation\AeXNSCInstSvc.msi" to the PC, say C:\temp (D in WinPE?), then I would add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce with the value c:\temp\AeXNSCInstSvc.msi, and that's it?

Their scripts also use %NAME% and %ID% to create custom .xml files that are then used for unattend.xml, I understand 7.1 doesn't support these tokens? Hopefully I can just use the unattend.xml that we use for my departments builds.

Any tips appreciated. Thanks.
