I'm using LD9 SP3. Deploying a image for Windows 7 Pro
1. What exactly does Rmvol do? A description I found said removes all volumes. Ok does it delete them, does it just remove the volume numbering, 1,2,3 or letters, A, B ,C and why does it do this in a deploy job?
2. RMvol is followed by Wipecleandisk 0. If the above removes all volumes then there shouldn't be any disk 0 (disk 0 is a Volume) to clean so what does this do?
3. A image is deployed.
Then comes RMvolletter, I understand this just removes the letters from each volume, this I understand, just don't understand the need for it?
4.It's followed by assvol2 which selects disk 0, selects partition "N" (N is a token replaced by the script for partition put in deploy script), makes it active, assigns Drive letter C. This I don't understand because the image is already layed down on the hard drive and should have drive letter C already ?
5. Last comes FixWindows.exe partition "N" N is a token This is supposed to fix the MBR?
Why am I asking these questions? I am using a third party image that I am deploying (altiris). Other is chosen in the script and it also points to the third party imaging tool. As far as I can tell the imaging tool does nothing to the image except install it.
I get the "use the repair disk to fix" after deployment.
I have tryed in the deploy script using partition 1, 2, 3
I checked and the boot partition is there and active.(Both partitions are there only one is active)
Something keeps messing up the MBR. (It has OS and System partitions).
The above is the only minipulations done to the hard drive.
