Yes, scripted installations and images. Works fine for me, what is your question?

Windows 7 creates a 100 MB partition. Do you capture that? How do you re-deploy it? What pre-install tasks do you use?

Honestly I only use the iKBOX for scripted installs. Other than some licensing snafu's on my end its worked great for it.

OK. Deleting the 100MB partition solved problem one.

This is a different problem. I'm trying a scripted install. Got one to work on a really old machine. Trying it on a Dell GX 520 and a Latitude XT. Gives an error of "windows installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be installed."

Any ideas?

bgatech,

Are you stilling having this issue with the GX520? If this is happening in KPE, then you need to update your drivers from Kace's website.

Yea, just remember to use the Vista MBR and you should be fine.

Make sure you are updated to the latest version of 3.1.26500, it has full Windows 7 support.

I know this post is old but if someone comes looking for the answer there is a more elegant way of capturing Windows 7 with a few pre-install tasks.http://www.kace.com/support/kb/index.php?action=artikel&cat=54&id=994&artlang=en
