If you want to deploy different client computers with different unattended files, you can use the following steps:

 

Steps:

==========

 

1.       Create a prestaged account for the server which you want to deploy to.

 

You can do this either by using the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in console, or by using the WDSUTIL command-line utility as “WDSUTIL /Add-Device /Device:<name> /ID:<ID>”, where the ID is the GUID or MAC address of the computer you want to prestage.

2.       Set this computer to use a customized unattend file.

 

Open an elevated Command Prompt window. Run “WDSUTIL /Set-Device /Device:<name> /WDSClientUnattend:<path>” (without the quotation), where <path> is the relative path to the unattend file you want from the Remote Install shared folder.
