WDS question

I've just started using WDS to automate Windows 7 deployment (I want it fully unattanded, joined to domain, etc) but it always prompts me for disk configuration. I've specified the disk layout I want and set WillShowUI to Never but it always prompts. What am I doing wrong? I've searched and found various snippets from ImageUnnattend.XML files but none of them work for me.

    You also need to specify where to install the image (which disk and partition), that's probably what it's asking for. I can't remember which component it's under though sorry.

    I tried that but it still prompts me. What else can I try?

    Here is a snippet from my WDSUnnattend.XML file. It wipes the disk and creates a single partition to fill the disk, then installs to that partition.

    <Disk wcm:action=\"add\">
    <CreatePartition wcm:action=\"add\">
    <ModifyPartition wcm:action=\"add\">

    Damn, I was close but not quite close enough. Thanks for sharing your config with me.

    I have another WDS question but will start a new thread.
