RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, configure the SetupUILanguage element in the Unattend.xml file.

The following XML output shows how you can configure the Windows Setup UI language to display Chinese (PRC):

Note The Windows OEM Preinstallation Kit (OPK) documentation will be updated in Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) to indicate that this setting is mandatory.
