 MDT 2010 Annoyances #6 - TimeZoneName variable does not work correctly with Windows 7 x64 Minimize
Location: BlogsJohan Arwidmark    
Posted by: johan 1/6/2010

When deploying Windows 7 x64 using MDT 2010 Zero Touch and ConfigMgr 2007 SP2 the TimeZoneName variable does not work as expected. Windows 7 x86 however works fine.

Workaround:

Add a "Set a  Task Sequence variable" action before the "Apply Windows Settings" action in the Task Sequence, and set OSDTimeZone to %TIMEZONENAME%

Note: You also need to have a x64 unattend.xml in your settings package.

You need to set the above workaround in the TS for the timezone to work. as for the keyboard, you should set keyboardlocale=sv-SE only. Also make sure you have a x64 settings package (with a x64 unattend.xml)

Where do i get, or how do i create an x64 unnatend.xml. Ive been following the deployment guide and so have just copied that one, not sure how to create my own.
