    Did you run sysprep prior to attempting to capture an image? If not run sysprep.

    In WDS press shift + F10 to bring up a command prompt. Can you do a dir c: (or possibly d? If you can't see the drive at the command prompt then it points to storage drivers. What wim is your WDS using to boot into capture?
    Howdo, I have 1.25GB of RAM associated to the Virtual PC and have SysPrepped it (though not with Generalize, do I need to do that? I'm never sure so I was trying without to see if that was causing my previous issues).

    I'll check the Shift + F10 thing and see what I can do.

    Using the (goes to look) meh .. server's not letting me remote on .. darn thing .. (well darn wireless actually) ..

    It was the standard capture image that is recommended some Microsoft Tutorial I found .. I'll post up when I get to the server ..

    Thought it could be, so binded the network connector instead and still no joy .. thanks though .. (actually, the binding picks up the PXE a lot quicker!)

    Yes you must generalise otherwie stuff like WSUS and KMS will break at the least.

  4. Thanks to SYNACK from:

    If you can see the drive from command prompt then it's more likely you need to sysprep -> generalize.

    If you can't see the drive then it could be the storage drivers, but if it's the Vista or Server 2008 Wim then I don't see why that wouldn't have it in.

    It's either from the 2008R2 or Windows 7 Pro disk so should have it in then I'm guessing ..

    If it's one of those then look at everything else first as long as you can see the virtual hard drive from the command prompt.

    Ah the beauty of Virtual Machines .. just copied and resealed with the generalize setting and the drive appeared when I came to capture .. so fingers crossed this will work ..

    Thanks once again for all your help guys! Tis why EduGeek is such a brilliant place! Even those of us who have been in IT for donkeys can still learn new things from our peers huh!

    Leave this going overnight and hope when I come in the morning that it's all captured and ready to roll out!
