I am currently trying to use Windows Deployment Server on a Servef 2008 R2 Machine, and while I have WDS setup correctly to the point where I can install the Operating System.

My XML code looks like this:

The XML looks sound, but, whenever I try to have it automatically select the options, it still requires manual input on all the fields that I have selected. I am just wondering if anyone else has any better information or can help me out with this.

Please don't recommend me vLite or nLite for anything like this.

Where it currently requires input/issues:
Hard Drive Selection
After installation succeeds, it sometimes blackscreens and I can't do anything on input
