Win7 deployment help required - WDS / Sys Prep related
I'm hoping someone can help me with this problem - I'm sure it's simple but I'm beat at the mo!
I installed Win7, entered audit mode & installed a few items of software. Then added an unattend.xml file to the SysPrep folder & SysPrepped the machine (OOBE / Generalise) etc. This image was captured to the WDS server no problems at all & can then be deployed. This is where the issue arises (I think!).
When I attempt to deploy the image using a boot image on WDS called "Standard Deploy" it shows up the captured image ok & appears to install everything ok.
Until it gets to the final stages & a Windows Package Manager error appears saying "Operation failed with 0x80070002 - the System cannot find the file specified". When I click ok I get an Install Windows error saying "Windows Could not apply unattend settings during pass (null)."
This error message appears whether I have an unattend file present or not.
Whenever I restart the machine I get a message saying BOOTMGR is missing press Ctrl + Alt + del to restart.
Can anyone help me out with this please? I'm desperately wanting to upgrade our network workstations to Win7 from XP but this is causing a major stumbling block!
