Deploying an image to a 2-partition hard drive
The Dell computers come with a recovery partition and the Windows partition. I imaged the Windows partition (drive D) and tried to deploy this image, along with some preinstall tasks (create single partition, format C, install MBR and upload hardware inventory). The installation fails. I think the drive was formatted because when I try to reboot to the hard drive, the bootmgr is missing.
Any assistance would greatly be appreciated!
I used the scripts on this page -- http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/solutiondetail?sol=113970. The K-image wouldn't work for me but WIM did so I am now able to image computers. - See more at: http://www.itninja.com/question/deploying-an-image-to-a-2-partition-hard-drive#answer-91248
