    A working image (i think) has been uploaded to our WDS server, and this is the error message I recieve when I install it to the machine it was built on AND for.

    "Windows could not parse or process the unattended answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for the component [Microsoft-Window-Shell-Setup]"

    Using a HP Pavilion dv7-1273cl ... have 10 of these laptops, and now have one with 32-bit installed, and all our company base programs on it .. CONFIRMED working, I am posting this from it right now ... Please help :)
