ok, this problem persists....sort of......I had it originally when capturing and deplying to a remote network. Since setting up a remote site appliance the issue went away. I can deploy my image no problems locally with the k2000 and remotely using the remote appliance. I sometimes get errors in the log about files existing already but that's fine as detailed here - http://www.itninja.com/question/errors-in-console-when-deploying-win7-image#sthash.DzIcawx4.dpuf

However, I've just tried to deploy locally from teh k2000 to one of our newer models which is UEFI based and I've got the winload.exe missing error again.

This is a single partition win 7 image so as far as I'm aware it shouldn't make any difference if it's a UEFI or BIOS PC should it?

I see there are pre and mid level tasks to create ufei partitions but from what I've read they'll create 2 patitions. Is it possible to create a singel partition image for deployment on a uefi PC?

  • You have to use the UEFI tasks to create all of the UEFI partitions, that's how it works. Your single-partition image gets applied to the C drive like usual, and you need to deploy the image from the S drive which would be about a 10MB image (which means you need to capture it also). At least, that's what I had to do to get a UEFI image to deploy successfully. The S drive image can be from any image that's the same OS arch.

ok, so I won't be able to use a single partition image across both BIOS and UEFI hardware?

  • Yes you can. The only thing you need extra, aside from creating the UEFI partitions with a preinstall task, is your S: drive image that you captured from a UEFI install of the same arch.

ok the s drive image being a capture of the ESP 200mb drive or the msr 128 mb drive? When you say same arch you mean identical model PC?

Also how do I deploy the s drive image at the same time as my system image? Just run two deployment processes./ first for the s drive the second for the system image?

Sorry for being a bit slow, there's very little documentation on this that I can find.
