USMT 10 loadstate fails when deploying Windows 7

When deploying Windows 7 and using USMT 10 loadstate, the operation will fail due to missing files.
The issue was first outlined here http://deploymentresearch.com/Research/Post/497/Fix-for-Windows-7-deployments-failing-after-upgrading-to-Windows-ADK-10 and then acknowledged by Microsoft as an issue [https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3084782].
The resolution is to copy 7 files for each architecture into the directory that contains USMT 10 loadstate.

These files need to be in place prior to uploading USMT 10 to the K2000.  ADK 10 must be installed on the workstation along with the K2000 Media Manager.  To make the process easier, I wrote a script that will copy both x64 and x86 files to the correct location for you.

The tool can be downloaded from ITNinja, but you must join the K2000 community first.

Please let me know if there are any issues with the tool itself.

*K2000 3.7 SP3 and SP3 Media Manager are required.


  • I wish I had found this before I uploaded USMT10.

    Is there any way to upload the files post USMT10 install and have it work? - rskwire 7 years ago
    • I believe you can just reupload usmt 10 again and it will replace the old version.
