INTRODUCTION

The TimeZone entry in an unattended installation file is used to specify the time zone settings for a computer during an unattended installation. This entry is available in Microsoft Windows 2000, in Microsoft Windows XP, and in Windows Server 2003. However, the TimeZone entry is not supported in Windows Vista or in Windows Server 2008.

MORE INFORMATION

For example, in Windows Server 2003, you can add the TimeZone entry under the [GuiUnattended] section in an unattended installation file as follows:

[GuiUnattended]

TimeZone = index

Note The index placeholder specifies a number that represents a specific time zone setting for the computer. The information about these time zone indexes is available in the Unattend.doc file. The Unattend.doc file is part of the Deploy.cab file that is available in the Support Tools folder on the Windows installation CD.
