I'm working in virtualized env. and when try to migrate winXP VM to win7 with included preinstallation task - Collect Computer Name, it doesnt work... it stops right after message block "creating system structures"... then after a few minutes restarts and message appears "boot manager is missing"...

Without that task, everything works fine... I haven't touched the script... has anyone had this problem?

Have you tried these?  http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/Get-Set-ComputerName?action=artikel&id=1137

This is what we use, haven't had any problems with them yet.

  • I haven't...i can't access those files... can you paste me code here?
    • E-mail KACE support to have an account created for you. If you're a KACE customer you should definitely have an account for downloading. I can't post those files any other way.
      • I understand...can you just tell me,is this files you're mentioning different/improved from the ones I have that came with K2000 predefined?
    • These ones work with both system images and scripted installs. The canned scripts only work on one of those, can't remember which one.
      • I have problem with SI which I explained in problem description...Hmm,i'll try to get account for those scripts...i'm still new at this... tny for advices
    • I think you just e-mail support and give them your e-mail address, that is what you'll use for your username.
      • Ok, I'll do that, tny :)

  • I've run some tests I can conifrm that "collect_comp_name" works for K-imaging method...not for WIM, which is understandable...

This tool only work with images.
How about using wsname.exe, which can be used as post install task and can do much more (I really love it)
Only issue: not useable when the system has joined a domain.
