  • Hello,

    Unfortunately we are not able to troubleshoot the answer file imported.  You may want to consider using the unattend.xml creator built into the ImageAssist tool.  There are many users that utilize the ImageAssist tool that use the built in unattend.xml creator without issue.  If you continue to experience this fail mechanism, re-downloading the ImageAssist tool may be helpful.
