do you get any message? Or only boots again?
There was no message, just a blank screen with a blinking cursor.
I have found out the solution, however. The MBR on a stock USB drive is either corrupt or incompatible when creating a bootable USB drive through LDMS. The solution was to put the drive into a Linux OS, and use the partition manager to remove all partitions and reformat it as a FAT32 partition. Then I re-created the bootable USB drive through the LANDesk Boot Media Creator. This solved and made the USB drive boot any and all devices we need to image.
Thanks for your reply!
Thank you for your solution as it got me onto an easier path to resolve it. I started up diskpart and ran a clean on the disk. Then I let windows re-format the drive and created the boot device from Landesk. Worked.
- Start -> run -> cmd
- type in "diskpart"
- Type in "List disk" to see what your usb device is
- "select disk #" from what you find in step 3
- Type in "clean"
- Then create a new primary partition
- Remove USB drive, re-instert and let windows format (Be sure to select default allocation size)
- Create your boot media again from LANDesk
