WDS - "Windows could not clean disk 0"
I've taken an XP image from a PC (after sysprep-ing it) to my WDS server.
When I come to install the image I get a message
Windows cannot clean disk 0. The specified disk does not exist. The error occured while applying the unattend answer file's <disk configuration> setting. Error code 0x8030025
I get this even on a known good disk in the PC the image was built from. There's a worryingly small amount of info on the web about this - anybody have any ideas?

Can you boot from the basic version of windows PE that you used to build the WDS capture and deploy image and then see if it has the drivers included to access the internal drive that you are trying to image to.
If the PE image does not have the drivers then this could be causing the issue.

Thanks for the input. The Capture and Deploy images came from a colleague in another department who set the WDS server up for me. Unfortunately he is on leave at the moment so I can't ask him for some help.
The disk in question is bog standard IDE, so I assumed drivers wouldn't be an issue.

I would suggest giving it a go manualy with the latest copy of Windows PE which is a part of the Windows AIK You should be able to add the version of Windows PE in their to your WDS server as an option to boot to. This should give you network access etc when you boot to the machine in question. You can then try accessing the disk in there, formatting it and the like. If this all works then you could rebuild the deployment image with this version (its just a matter of a few mouse clicks if I remember correctly) and use this to attempt the imageing.
Just had a thought as I was typing though, is the BIOS hard drive boot sector/MBR security option set. This is a virus control measure for older boot sector viruses but as the image rewrites the boot sector this could be where it is hanging up from.

when deploying the image press shift and f10.
type in diskpart,
type in list
select required disk
remove all partitions hidden ones tend to cause problems specially with dell pc's.
try deploying now
hope this helps
