Deploying two partition Windows 10 Image

10/23/2017 2420 views
Hi All

I have been using the K2000 to deploy Win 10 (1607) images with just a single partition. When I update the golden Win 10 image to 1703 it creates two partitions. One 836 MB recovery partition and the other the Win10 OS.  I've create two new pre install tasks, one to create two partitions and the other format/MBR (See below).  Unfortunately when I deploy the image I keep getting "An Operating System Wasn't Found...."  
 
I should also include that I am booting from USB Win10 KBE.

Any input would be awesome.

Thanks

Eric

  • I would investigate that 836 MB partition, I mean is not normal... is too large... Is this an OEM image or something?

    anyways if you're using LegacyBios see:

    "Capturing and Deploying Multiple Partitions for Windows 7 and Later "
    https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-deployment-appliance/kb/113970

    That error happens when the formatting being done, is not compatible with the partitions being deployed or the BIOS type.

    see this topic:
    https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28951869/Dell-KACE-An-operating-System-wasn't-found-after-image-deployment.html


    Remember that if the Image was captured from a Legacy BIOS Virtual Machine, you can only deploy it to Legacy Bios machines.
    Same thing applies for UEFI

I figured it out... Just delete the recovery partition, windows.old folder to free up space. You can extend the OS partition to use the 836MB. Then capture and deploy the OS partition only.

Thanks
