Ventoy AutoInstall Plugin - Ignore .xml ?
Can you attach the complete XML file or was that it ?

I think the issue is that your XML file is not designed to work as an autounattend.xml file.

Ventoy creates a X:\autounattend.xml file using the user-specified XML file -it does not create a X:\unattend.xml file.

If the XML file does not contain other sections (e.g. WindowsPE pass) it will not be cached by Setup - so to make it work with Ventoy, try adding a WindowsPE section.


<settings pass="windowsPE">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="" xmlns:xsi="">

You may need to add a generic install key instead of it being blank.

Quote:Answer Files Named Autounattend.xml are Automatically Discovered by Windows Setup

Windows Setup starts and automatically identifies Autounattend.xml as a valid answer file. Because the answer file uses a valid file name (Autounattend.xml), is located in one of the valid search paths (the root of D), and includes valid settings for the current configuration pass (windowsPE), this answer file is used.

The answer file is cached to the computer. If there are no additional answer files discovered in later passes, the cached answer file is used throughout Windows Setup.
