Packer image with multiple drives

I am working on building an image that will house default items in a secondary drive.

For instance:
C:\ Main OS
E:\ Secondary Drive.

I have it where it will build the drive, but when running packer, I am not sure how to get it to install the OS on the C: on its own, it prompts for selection.

Here is the packer Cod I have so far, I am not sure how to change the ISO paths to install on the correct drive. Could this be in the autounattend.xml?

Yes, I think this needs to be in your autounattend, though off the top of my head Iā€™m not sure how to write it. This example might get you started though:

@Occul77rick5 ā€” Did you ever solve this? I need to do the same.
