Hi, Short version: Tried deploying win 8 to HP Elitepad tablet computers. When trying to deploy over PXE, I encountered some issues (more here http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/8045-trying-to-deploy-over-pxe-uefi-x86-with-wds-2012/), I think they're related to pxe booting a x86 uefi machine, which my wds 2012 doesn't seem to like... After a couple of days I thought why not try to deploy it over USB, created a task sequence, configured media on the WDS and tried deploying it. At first I hit some issues related to disk partitioning, that seemed to be resolved, but maybe it isn't entirely. What happens now is: - Elitepad boots on USB - Task sequence performs a few tasks - prepares - formats the disk (uefi) - injects drivers - uses imagex to expand the previously captured .wim - reboots Then when rebooting I get a new style of blue screen. This shows: the operating system couldn't be loaded because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors file: \windows\system32\drivers\megasas2.sys Error Code: 0xc000035e I suppose it has something to do with drivers for the storage controller, but I don't quite get what's wrong, the drivers are installed correctly in the .wim, so after restoring that should be ok, and also they are injected during the earlier phases. I think it may have something to do with which partition is active, but I can't seem to get it resolved. Any thoughts/ideas/... ? Thanks
Hi guys i recently had network driver problems with some new HP models (8200 elite and Z210) i was looking at having to slipstream the drivers into the win7 and server 2008 boot.wim. I was having some problems finding the right drivers to inject when i thought that the win8 pre-release iso would have a boot.wim in the sources folder with lots of new drivers already on. And it did... so no more using win7 and server 2008 boot.wim. Hopefully this will help anyone who has similar problems. Knowing my luck everyone has already been doing this and i've just been sleeping. :-) Regards Les
