I'm using LDMS 9 SP1, and creating standard Win PE Image Capture scripts using the defaults,except for file locations, credentials, etc. I specify that the OS will be on the second partition. I am trying to deploy about 200 new machines of 4 different Dell models. I'm not using HII at this time.
On the machine to be captured, I loaded Win 7 and once at the desktop, ran sysprep /audit, and rebooted. The computer has a single 320GB drive, on which I had Win 7 setup create a single 35GB partition. It automatically created a system partition of 100MB as partition 0. The 35GB partition is partition 1. The remainder of the drive is unpartitioned. I installed all the drivers for that machine, added Office, patched everything, and did some basic configuring. Still in audit mode, I rebooted to the WinPE menu and chose the selection for the capture script I had prepared. The capture proceeds and completes normally. The log file shows success, but when the machine reboots, it immediately shows the error "BOOTMGR is missing". I run the Windows repair, but it is unable to repair the install. If I start the process over, I can see that the OS was definitely on the second partition.
Any help would be appreciated!
