Sometimes this caused by a corrupt image. Are you using ImageW.exe? If you double click it, in the GUI there is a Validate button to check the image.
I checked with validate option ,it didnt give any error.
Do you know any other way.
I thought I saw this once where it appeared that the image restore worked but in fact it didn't have the correct drivers for the hard drive so it did not restore the image correctly. So when the computer rebooted there wasn't anything on the hard drive. Are you using winPE? Try booting up into winPE and making sure that you can view the hard drive by opening a opening a command prompt and running the following commands:
If you can't view the hard drive then follow the instructions in this post:
I am attaching here log files for capture and deploy.
the restore starts and then stops immediately..................
the validate in GUI gives no error.................
but when i run imagew.exe from the win pe console after the restore screen vanishes the validation fails...............
According to the log file it seems this is related to the hard drive. Have you tired diskpart utility? Does WinPE recognize the hard drive. If no you need to add drivers to WinPE.
IF the image restores fine, and you get this error, then likely your MBR (Master Boot Record) has either not got the correct partition set to active (i.e. - "boot from this") or not one set at all.
I've seen this happen before, though I've on idea idea what breaks and whose fault it is - either way, if no active partition is set, the symptoms are as you describe them, but the fix is pretty simple.
I'd suggest you boot into WINPE and use DISKPART to set the correct partition active. DISKPART is pretty easy to use. Something like the following should sort you out.
1 - Launch a CMD window
2 - enter "diskpart"
3 - enter "select disk 0"
4 - enter "list partition"NOTE - I'm assuming you've only got the one hard-disk in there, hence the "select disk 0".
"list partition" will show you the partitions you've got. It's necessary that you know what partition # you want to use. So - for example - let's say that partition # 1 is what's causing us problems. In that case...
NOTE - when you do "list partition" a partition may have a "*" (star) character next to it. This is the currently set active partition. If you DO NOT have an active partition, none of them will have a star.
NOTE - Contrary to most other IT related items (such as hard disk enumeration) for some reason, DISKPART enumerates partitions starting from 1, instead of 0.
5 - enter "select partition 1"
6 - enter "active""active" will set the currently selected partition as the active boot partition. You can only ever have 1 active partition.
7 - enter "list partition"You should now see a star on the left-most side of partition 1.So output would look something like this:
And once this is done, you should be able to reboot and all should be well :).

Can these diskpart commands be added to the OSD script? Assuming a REMEXEC can be used where in the script should it be placed? I am having particular trouble with Dell Latitude D630c's. 1 in 4 OSD tasks places the image on c:\ and sets the partition active as it should the other 3 places the image in the MBR 0. With 40,000 nodes and the amount of imaging we do it is not practical to reboot into WinPE and run diskpart manually. There is also a huge difference in the amount of time it takes to complete the task. If it images properly it takes less than 10 minutes. If it goes to the MBR 0 it takes an hour or more.

thanks al ot
greetings Michael Ebert
wrong AHCI Driver was installed on the master image, check the Driver in the master image
