Rolling out Windows 7 through WDS
This is something that is really irritating me at the moment.
We're planning on rebuilding all our machines over the summer and as part of the rebuild we are going to upgrade to Windows7.
I've built myself a Windows 7 Pc, done all the tests of GPO's and software etc installed the software which needs to be available on all machines. The PC has been sysprepped and I have captured the image and stored it on the local machine (as I couldn't get it to connect to the WDS Server). The image has been taken from the PC and transferred onto the WDS server. From here I have taken the .wim file and used it to create an answer file to allow unattended installation.
So back to my test PC, I've started it up and booted it into the WDS and found the image I want to install and set it running. It gets through the first three stages (Copying Files, Expanding Files, Installing Features) but fails when it gets to "Installing Updates" with the following error message.
"Operation failed with 0x80070002. The system cannot find the file specified".
Anyone come across this before? Is there a solution?
Cheers in advance
