How to Video: Debug Windows Panther

Wanted to share this quick video I made illustrating how to find Windows Setup Logs (Panther Logs)

Some Key Takeaways:

  • When running Windows Setup, press Shift+10 to get to cmd.exe
  • Look for logs in c:\windows\panther
  • A copy of the unattend.xml file will be in c:\windows\panther\unattend.xml
    Double check each file to see if they have content (sometimes files listed as size Zero Bytes are actually not Zero!)
  • When asking for help on the MDT TechNet Forums, copy all the panther logs to a public site like OneDrive and share the link.
