    FixUnattend.exe fails error -2147479552


      I am trying to deply a windows 7 image using the sample windows 7 deployment template that i downloaded from the forums. I get to the point where it executes FixWindows.exe and it fails (see error code below). I am using LDMS 9 SP2. I have imported the FixUnatted and FixWindows scripts but it still fails.


      Does anyone know what this error means? -2147479552


      I have attached a screen shot of the failed provisioning template.

          this should be FixWindows.exe fails error -2147479552....sorry bout that.


          The sample template i am referring to is here:

            So i tried it again to see if i could figure out what that error message means. Looks like it's not finding the fixWindows.exe file. below is the log file:


            action index=57963 type=Download_file
            action index=57964 type=Execute_file
            error:[80001000H]File x:\cba8\FixWindows.exe not found.
            Execute result:


            the file is there but when i try to run it manually it says this:


            retOS=1 osPartitionID=1 osPartitionDrive=c
            retSystemOS=0 systemPartitionDrive
            %c:\Boot\BCD does not exist


            and as you can see the provisioning template shows the download of FixWindows to be successful (image attached)


            im stumped.

              I guess the LD support team has been busy because i haven't gotten a response to this thread. But that is all good. They have been VERY helpful in the past. And besides, i figured out my problem.


              it turns out that i didn't need to use "fixwindows.exe" after all. Maybe you only have to use it when you are using imagew.exe (i use imagex) to capture and deploy your image. I ended up taking the "fixwindows" include in the template out of shear frustration and the image deployed ok. but it wouldn't boot. so a fellow LD user here on campus suggested i use BCDboot.exe, which sets up the partitions. turns out that was the magic tool. it worked. and i did NOT deploy the system partition. I had not found a clear answer before as to whether you had to capture and deploy the system partition. but you don't.....just so you know.
