Anymore help would be appreciated.
Now tried to do this on my XP SP3 machine instead of my Server 2003 SP2.
Now when I get to the
peimg /inf=d:\temp\driver\*.inf /image=d:\Temp\Mount
stage, I get the message:
Installing INF package: c:\temp\driver\yk51x86.inf
quickly followed by
PEIMG failed to complete the operation with status code 0x800703fb
Any other thoughts anyone.... I'm really starting to get cheesed off with this!
By running the WAIK on a Vista Virtual PC rather than on XP or server 2003.
Well that's a royal pain in the .....
Well done on finding a solution
Had to install XP then upgrade to Vista... even then it would only work if I captured the ISO image for Vista rather than read it off the DVD....
Oh well, at least I now have a way of actually injecting drivers.
I was PM'd by another Edugeeker asking for a basic setup guide to WDS. I've put together an entry on the Edugeek Wiki which glosses over the basics as far as I can work out...
Windows Deployment Services Setup
Has anyone managed to deploy an XP client without needing to put a domain join account and password information in the sysprep.inf?
RIS never needed this information before so I'm a lil confused why it now wants it. I don't feel great about putting in it a plaintext file, nor do I really want to have to create another account just for domain joining. It seems a bit backwards to me.
Ok.... I think I'm being a bit thick but lets see!
I'm setting up WDS to push out an XP image.
Have successfully imaged a PC using the WDS capture and can successfully push out on to the same and similar hardware using the WDS boot image.
Have successfully used ImageX and PEIMG to inject NIC drivers to the Boot.WIM.
Would now like to inject drivers into the actual XP image so that I can use the same image a number of PCs with differing chipsets (but all intel based).
Can mount the image fine using ImageX but when I try to inject drivers into this image I get :
The image directory specified is not a valid Windows PE image.
PEIMG failed to complete the operation with status cod 0x8007000d
Now, I guess that I should be able inject drivers into the main XP image not just the Boot.WIM, or am I wrong? I suppose the XP image captured using the WDS capture isn't really a Windows Pre-Environment image so is perhaps I shouldn't be using PEIMG for this.
Or SHould just be pushing all drivers for all the hardware into the Boot.WIM not the main XP image?
Anyone else had problems getting custom drivers to install? Any tips I've missed out on?
Bit of an update, I have managed to get the driver installation to work (Thank something) except for the RealTek High Definition Audio driver. Does anyone have any experience in deployed an image with this driver?
Guys i hope you can help me because i'm going to go mad and throw this machine out the window soon......right we have wds on server 2008 32bit...gx520 745 755 images boot fine, cant fault it.
my boss goes to me about 4 hours ago can you do a image for the GX270's i said your having a laugh right, he goes do i look like i'm joking...so i shut up......
I have tried the drivers on the intel site i think its the E1000325......i have injected the driver but when i get past the username password part i find no images....can anyone throw any light onto this or is it going out the window :-)
cheers in advance
Can you use RIS and WDS?
What I mean is initially you see the RIS login screen, then there is the RIS menu one of the options takes you to the WDS menu.
This way you can install XP with RIS and Vista with WDS. If you see what I mean? :confused:
we are deploying xp with wds......reason being my boss refuses now to pay the 5k licence for ghost :(
