    WDS & Win7

    Hi Guys,

    Currently bought a batch of new PC's, we have server 2008 r2. I am looking at imaging the PC's using WDS. Heres what I have done so far:

    Installed all software/updates on PC to how I want

    Installed the WDS role on the server

    I have tried a few times to upload the install.wim and boot.wim files to the server then tried to add drivers to the boot.wim file however not having much joy.

    The PC I have is a HP 3300

    where does it fail?
    how are you trying to upload them to the server?
    what boot.wim are you uploading to server?
    (unless you want to install a fresh version of windows with 0 customisation there isnt much point uploading install.wim)
    how are you adding the drivers to boot.wim dism/imagesx or through the menu?
    have you sysprepped the pc you want to pull and created a capture image as you need a capture image to get an image (deploy to fire out) and it wont image a non sysprepped pc

    I am using the boot.wim and install.wim from the windows 7 installtion disc.

    I am trying to inject drivers using the menu option under the drivers tab within WDS.

    Also the PC is sysprepped.
