    Lenovo X131e Problem Provisioning

    MrGadget Expert

      Using Landesk 9.5 SP2.


      Using a Provisioning template and HII I can deploy a  image to a Lenovo X131e Notebook until it gets to CTOS. On rebooting during CTOS it blue screens with a message "can't find autochk".


      I checked and all the partitions are there, the correct one is active and bootable. Any help would be appreciated.


      One other note here is this is the first Lenovo I have dealt with all other computers are Dells.

          That sounds like a problem with the image. Did you use the image the machine shipped with, or an existing one? What about the BIOS - is it set to UEFI or "Legacy"? If you manually install Windows from DVD/USB does it install? What about using that image? If that all looks good, perhaps just the boot record isn't set right. Even with a volume set active, Windows sometimes needs and extra step. A possible test would be to reboot the machine and load it into WinPE, but don't run any template. Open a command prompt and run "bcdboot.exe <PATHTOWINDOWS>". For example bcdboot.exe C:\Windows. Then reboot the machine and see if it goes better. If that works, then you can just add that action to your Provisioning template.

            We used the image that came from the factory, it has 3 partitions. The image was Sysprepped before capture,

            The bios is set to uefi. I think it was tried using legacy also.

            I booted it to Winpe and ran the bcdboot but that didn't help either.

            Also someone in the forum had one and suggested using a /t in the imageing line but that didn't work either.
