I'm about to deploy Windows 8 on like 50 desktops, did basic testing using virtualization, but there is a problem with the Unattend.xml file that I can't figure out. It's not loading, client acts as if it's not there, and the Windows Deployment Services UI pops up.

Unattend.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
