My win7 scripted install does the preinstall task Create single partition fine, then kicks off the scripted install of windows 7 then crashes complaining it cant find a drive to install too.

Have tried updating sata drivers in the KBE, any other ideas?

hey Cordlez,

Are you able to see the disk if you go to recovery -> command prompt?

Anyway we could get a screen shot?

I don't think this is a driver issue, since were able to see the partition for the format and disk-part.

Can you try creating a new scripted install without an answer file?> (create the scripted install -> choose server unattended)

See if that works.

Ok i have an update.
After we updated the K2000 to Version 3.3 we enabled the driver feed.
We downloaded two driver packs for the optiplex 980, Windows 7 X86 and X64

After we uninstalled these two driver packs we have success.

As you can see when we run the guided script install we can see the harddrive now.

I too am getting this issue. I am trying to run a scripted install of Windows 7 x86 with SP1 embedded onto a Latitude E5520 laptop. When I push the OS down, I get the same error as in the images above.

Strangely, if I push down a scripted install that uses Windows 7 (with no service pack embedded), it works fine.

Any ideas?

Cheers. Dave
