K2000 Image Deployment Failing
I'm new to this forum and new to K2000 so I apologies in advance for any incompetence! I have read various forums and had a look at the help section within the K2000 but no luck yet. We have an image that was captured around a year ago and I want to create a new image as the software and Windows updates on that image are outdated.
I spoke with the guy on my team that originally created the image and he walked me through the process but it doesn't seem to work for me. Below is the process I'm following, please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong:
- Build up the Dell PC I want to image
- Sysprep the machine (I followed the steps listed here: http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/how-to-sysprep-windows-7-for-k2000-deployment)
- Reboot, capture the image of the machine (Windows Imaging Format)
- Log onto our K2000 server and configure the image to match the working images "Installation Plan" as per below:
When I try to push the image to a machine I get an error saying that the boot manager is missing after the imaging process finishes. Prior to that I tried to capture an image of a computer that had been imaged with our working image. This also didn't work but I got a different error. When I tried to push this image out it would fail on the "Apply Image" step with an error saying that no OS could be found.
A bit of back ground info, this image will be used on multiple machines with different hardware, it's 64 bit Windows, I can make the image work if i create it using a K-Image rather then Windows Imaging Format (would prefer to use the WIF due to size).
Thanks in advance for any advice,
