Win 7 Sysprep/Unattend.xml Question

This issue has been solved. See solution.

This is an admitdely elementary question.  I am in an enterprise environment with a mixed bag of AMD and Intel machines.  Do I need to create different unattend.xml files for the two processor sets?  The source of this question is I am seeing documentation that references amd64 while another references x86 in the component list.  Thanks!

x86 refers to "32 bit" while amd64 is Microsoft's way of saying "64 bit".

It would probably be wise to create different Unattend.xml files for each OS version.  For enterprise simplicity's sake, though, you should try to figure out if using one build for everything makes sense.

Thank you for your assistance.

Building different files based on architecture makes sense, even if Microsoft's naming convention leaves something to be desire.

Hello pshore,

If you take a look of the example answer file that comes with DS that you have you're answer there.

processorArchitecture="@ProcessArchitecture"

Only bad thing about is that the MS tool to create answer files does not handle it.
