Have you tested capture and deployment without using MDT?
I don't have this issue (but then I am deploying XP so not exactly the same), but during testing I simply ran a deploy and capture TS followed by a deployment TS that formats the entire partition and uses 100% of that partition and deploys to 'next available partition'. Might be worth try that to see if its MDT doing something odd.

I've run a task sequence that I made from scratch and that also sets the system partition as D:\
Surely I can't be the only person in the woirld that this is happening to! This is really getting annoying now... this is the only thing stopping my deployment of Windows 7!

Just wondering if this a Win7 thing or does the same happen if you deploy XP?
4th March 2010, 08:56 AM #19
Can you post up some screen shots of the task sequence so that I can see how it's configured.
Also what updates are installed on SCCM, is it R2 SP2?

Oh hang on, are you using the .wim file directly from the Win7 disk?
Apparently for Vista, W7, 2008 and 2008R2 you have to create your own wim from a deploy and capture TS as the defualt .wim will install on D:

Not sure about this, I just extracted a Win 7 iso and used this as my original build source to do the capture from.

What's the version number of the boot image you are using for this task sequence?
4th March 2010, 09:13 AM #24
SCCM version: R2 SP2
WinPE OS version: 6.1.7600.16385
Windows OS version: 6.1.7600.16385
I haven't tried another OS and I have seen the comments about the Vista problem. I have seen videos though of this working flawlessly straight from a Windows 7 disk!
I'm downbloading a fresh copy of the media now to try that.
4th March 2010, 12:27 PM #25
Well I have tried it with another copy of the install media and it has once again installed to D:\
I have also tried 4 different models of computer - Lenovo T60, Lenovo X60, Sun Ultra 24 and HP xw6200.
I'm now going to play with some more BIOS settings.

Unless you are using bitlocker on these PCs there is a limited benifit to using the two partition setup anyway. You should be able to install to a single all inclusive partition by installing fresh and manually creating a partition that takes up the whole drive. Windows will warn that certain features, bitlocker won't function correctly and will ask you if you want it to fix it, cancel this prompt and it should install to one partition from what I have read.

I've not been trying to make two partitions anyway and I will need Bitlocker on my laptops (it's one of the reasons for moving to 7!).

Is your issue still unresolved? Have you checked the Windows 7 Technet forums on Springboard?
You might find others who've had the same issue. Just in case, here's the link social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/w7itpro although I realize that you are getting really good help here.

I think I found my problem... firstly, I am an idiot
Secondly, I had told SCCM to use the install.wim from the ISO as an Operating System Image... as opposed to using an Operating System Install Package like you are supposed to do.
Of course, my life is never simple so something else has gone wrong but that can be kept for another post!
