    Error Setting Temp path c:\

    Apprentice

      So i am trying to deploy Win 7 to a Dell Optiplex 740 (amd processor) using LDMS 9 SP2. with provisioning and I am using imagex as my capturing tool. I have captured both the 100Mb system partition and the partition with my image on it into two separate .wim files. And I am attempting to deploy both images back to a freshly formatted hard drive.The problem is that after the provisioning template wipe all the volumes and partitions on the machine, it fails when trying to deploy the image. The error is this:

       

      action index=57540 type=Deploy_image
      FAILED
      error:[80001803H]The action failed.
      Execute result:
      return:2
      output:


      and in the command prompt it says this:


      Error setting temp path: [C:\].


      The system cannot find the path specified.

       

      the only thing i have really found that pertains to deployment and this error code is that it could be that my WinPE image doesn't have the right driver for the disk. But this is a standard (very common) WD Blue Caviar hard drive. And besides, I have run diskpart.exe from WinPE and it is seeing the drive. And my WinPE image appears to have every frickin driver in the universe on it.

       

      I am not even sure that I am supposed to be capturing and deploying both .wim files but I have not found any solid documentation on these forums with instructions (using ImageX) to successfully capture and deploy a Win 7 image.

       

      The attached file is the ldprovision.log file (shortened) and it looks like it is fails at "tryallwebservice." so i am not sure if this has anything to do with IIS. I am still able to deploy my XP image with no problems and nothing has changed on my core, except installing SP2. But i have successfully pushed out my XP image since installing SP2.

       

      Any help would be appreciatied since my boss wants to know when the hell i am going to upgrade all my labs to Win7.

       

      thanks.

          How are you provisioning the disk?

           

          Assuming you are using diskpart then you need to use assign letter=C

           

          I was getting the same error message using some scripts I got from here

           

          BEFORE

          select disk 0
          clean
          create partition primary
          select partition 1
          active
          format quick
          exit

           

          AFTER

          select disk 0
          clean
          create partition primary
          select partition 1
          active
          format quick

          assign letter=C
          exit

           

          I hope this helps. I literally just fixed this problem and I came back to respond to your question which I came across searching for an answer

            Thanks for the response ITassist.....you are correct. I was using one of the example temlates found in these forums and it was not actually creating new partitions after it had deleted all of them. I didn't even notice.

             

            all fixed now.

             

            thanks for the help

              Jeff,

               

              If you are happy with ITassist's help please consider closing this thread with a correct answer. This way when we search open threads it will not show up.

               

              Thanks.

                Done, ZMan. Thanks.

                 

                Although, i wanted to add that i got this portion of the template to work but the provisioning template is still failing when it executes "FixWindows." Still working on that.

                       I have seen this error when we COPIED a provisioning Scheduled task in 9.50 SP1 and SP2. If the scheduled task is created from the original OS Provisioning task it worked fine. If it was copied it gave out this error:[80001803H]...
