WDS Unattendant oobe - need help

Hello.
My problem is in unattended installation. I use Image Manager to perform unattended installation. My XML file is verified but something is wrong with oobe section. I'm trying to configure installation so that the following options are not be promted but
configured in XML:
1. User adding.
2. Timezone choice.
3. Locale and language choice.
I link a screenshot of my XML file in Image Manager.
This file works for other sections but when Windows starts for the first time, it asks all this options. I don't want it.
Please help.

Hi Dissonance,
As Tripredacus said, there are two answers for WDS deployment:
WDSClientUnattend for WinPE phase
AutoUnattend for specialize and OOBE things  
So, you can follow the link above to create related answer files for your own sake.
If this issue still persists, we can check the installation log file to more information. But first, we should confirm the information above.
