Uefi style disk partitioning for windows 10

09/19/2017 4560 views

Hi guys.

For windows 7 scripted install, I had 2 partitions....c: and d:

Now I want to create a win 10 scrip[ted install on our new 2017

machines. I was told I should have "uefi" partitions.

Is this necessary ? What if I had a regular partions of C and D:?

without any of the hidden partitions that uefi creates. will

it affect my win 10 performance ?

I tried to use this modified uefi partition diskpart script in the k2.....

to create a C: with 150 gigs,and the rest as D

Select disk  0
Convert gpt
Create partition efi size=200
Assign letter=s
Format quick fs=FAT32
Create partition msr size=128
Create partition primary size=153600
Assign letter=c
Format quick fs=NTFS
Create partition primary
Assign letter=d
Format quick fs=NTFS

but the installation fails with an error saying "Windows cannot locate the disk and partition

specified in the unattend answer file's < ImageInstall> setting".

Can someone please give me a Uefi diskpart script to create a C:= 150 gigs.

While D: gets whats left.

  • hi I'm trying the same thins but not working. Anybody got a script working? instead of re-doing and capturing the image?

All Answers

You will need to create an EFI VM or use a UEFI device.

Install windows via Scripted Installation or DVD.

Customize your Image as desired.

Boot to a K2 KBE, and capture C: and S: drives.

With C and S, you can use Create UEFI partitions (pre install task) and Apply UEFI partitons (mid level task) to deploy UEFI Images.
