Problems when trying to capture Win 7 Image
I am trying to set up a trolley full of brand new laptops (HP 655) with Windows 7 (the were purchased with Windows 8 installed), and knew the easiest way for me would be to use WDS. This however is not the case as I am totally stuck!
The operating system has been installed and updated, and all the necessary software and drivers have been installed. I have sysprep'd the machine ready for capturing the image and there is a capture file ready on the server. Now, when I network boot the computer, from what I have seen before, it should come up with "contacting the server..." etc and then eventually give you a list of either boot or capture files of which I need to select 'capture'... This doesnt happen! I'll hit F12 to Network Boot and it then displays a message "F12 for Network Service Boot", upon hitting F12 the 2nd time it boots straight into Windows 8 setup and following that into Windows Deployment Services to pick an image to boot into. So looks like it automatically selects the first option without giving the chance to change.
Has anyone got any ideas of a solution ?
I have changed the necessary BIOS settings to be able to network boot, ie. Legacy Support.
