    Win7 deployment issues - unable to deploy.

    Just remembered about the o/s deployment forum this is better placed in here. I'm hoping someone can help me with this problem - I'm sure it's simple but I'm beat at the mo!

    I installed Win7, entered audit mode & installed a few items of software. Then added an unattend.xml file to the SysPrep folder & SysPrepped the machine (OOBE / Generalise) etc. This image was captured to the WDS server no problems at all & can then be deployed. This is where the issue arises (I think!).

    When I attempt to deploy the image using a boot image on WDS called "Standard Deploy" it shows up the captured image ok & appears to install everything ok.

    Until it gets to the final stages & a Windows Package Manager error appears saying "Operation failed with 0x80070002 - the System cannot find the file specified". When I click ok I get an Install Windows error saying "Windows Could not apply unattend settings during pass (null)."

    This error message appears whether I have an unattend file present or not.

    Whenever I restart the machine I get a message saying BOOTMGR is missing press Ctrl + Alt + del to restart.

    Can anyone help me out with this please? I'm desperately wanting to upgrade our network workstations to Win7 from XP but this is causing a major stumbling block!

    It'd probably be easier to use MDT (Microsoft Deployment Tools) to create & capture the image. Makes the whole process nicer and also has better logging for when weird things happen. Which they invariably do with OSD.

    You could try importing your wim into mdt and deploying using that

    You should use the MDT deployment share script folder to capture your image.
    It makes it simple and you normally shouldn't have any issues during your deployment.

    How to run a Sysprep and Capture Task Sequence From MDT 2010 - Ask the Core Team - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

    If you add any personal switches in your personal task sequence and you get errors, just turn it off or in option tick the box "continue on error".

    Good luck.

    I think its the same problem I had. If Go to your Active Directory users and computers, and in the list of computers , look for any inconsistency with in the computer names and delete it.
