Scripting Question

Windows 7 via WinPE10 - "Entry Point Not Found"

12/08/2016 1011 views
We have various Scripted installations, and Im trying to now use WinPE10 as the base for a standard KBE to use to deploy both Windows 7 and Windows 10. 
When installing Windows 7, I am faced with the known "Entry Point Not Found Error" (https://support.software.dell.com/k2000-systems-deployment-appliance/kb/115333) and am currently trying to get around this.

I'm looking for a bit more information on the workaround download, uploaded by cserrins (here - http://www.itninja.com/file/view/100/1) which seems to get around this by automatically hitting the enter key to pass the error message. Ive tried this and although it does seem to bypass the first couple of errors, there is still a final Error Message (Same Error) which is not bypassed at the end. If you manually click OK on the error, the scripted installation will complete as normal.

Just wanted to know if there is another way around this, or some more info on what script is included in the download (exe format), so i could perhaps modify it to bypass the final error message too.


Update: On more testing, this seems to be hit or miss whether it does bypass (or perhaps the error is not popping up to begin with...), maybe a timing issue, if the RSA is been used for multiple machines, it may take longer for the windows image to copy and is affecting the timing slightly..
