I did a bit of digging. The iaStorA.sys error is related to RAID drivers. This totally threw me off because the other PC with the same motherboard doesn't need RAID drivers to load the disks. All SATA ports on both systems are configured with RAID for the data disks which are mirrored.
When I take a base image of Win 7 and boot to it on System 1, I see Disk 0 as the Samsung and Disk 1 as the RAID disks.
When I boot to install Windows 7 on System 2 however, I see no disks. I have to load the RAID driver just to see the disks. I then see Disk 1 as Samsung and Disk 2 as the RAID disks. I don't even see a Disk 0 which is probably why the image is failing.
The differences between the two Motherboards... I flashed the MoBo on System 1. The PC shop I purchased it at flashed the MoBo on System 2. I had initially suspected this as the issue when I first ran into it, and I reflashed System 2 with the latest BIOS update which was a few revisions later. Both MoBo's are on the same revision now with the same settings, but I keep running into this odd issue with System 2. I suspect if I change my task sequence to use Disk 1 instead of Disk 0 it will work.
Now I am more concerned as to why System 2 is not seeing a Disk 0 and why it requires RAID drivers when System 1 doesn't.

You may need to add the storage/raid driver to your boot image and update wds. I could also be the bios settings are not identical.
