    Cannot provision Dell E5440 - Windows could not configure components

    jaericho Apprentice

      I am getting an error when provisioning a Dell E5440. Provisioning lays down an image, reboots, Windows does it's detecting driver 0-100% thing then I get an error from windows:

      Windows could not configure one or more system components. To install

      Windows, restart the computer and then restart the installation.

      after a restart (and every restart) I get this:

      The computer restart unexpectedly or encountered and unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restar the computer, and then restart the installation.


      I have downloaded all the drivers from Dell's site and exploded them into directories under \\<core>\ldmain\landesk\files\drivers\E5440\ then did a Build Library under HII Driver Management.


      Any ideas as to my next step?

      How can I troubleshoot this?


      The core is running 9.5 SP1. The client OS is Win7 x86. This provisioning task works on several other Dell models E6420,30,40 among others.
