WDS + Recovery Solution

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I created a windows Vista Hard Disk Recovery solution. LINK

 

I got that to work but now i would like to use WDS to deploy the final recovery.

But here is where i go wrong.

The deployment is of 3 .wim images and i do not see an option to do it.

 

The script to deploy the image using a VISTA OPK CD is as follows :

 

@echo off
set DISKPART_SCRIPT=x:\DiskPart_script.txt
echo sel disk 0 > %DISKPART_SCRIPT%
echo clean >> %DISKPART_SCRIPT%
echo create partition primary size=5120 >> %DISKPART_SCRIPT%
echo format fs=ntfs label="RECOVERY" quick >> %DISKPART_SCRIPT%
echo assign letter=R >> %DISKPART_SCRIPT%
echo create partition primary >> %DISKPART_SCRIPT%
echo active >> %DISKPART_SCRIPT%
echo format fs=ntfs label="Vista" quick >> %DISKPART_SCRIPT%
echo assign letter=S >> %DISKPART_SCRIPT%

diskpart /s %DISKPART_SCRIPT%

imagex /apply VistaAudit.wim 1 s: /verify
imagex /apply WindowsRE.wim 1 R: /verify
imagex /apply recovery.wim 1 r: /verify
ren r:\recovery.txt *.wim

 

So my question is if this can be done automaticly.

 

Thank you in advance.

hi, first of all can you tell me why you ended up with 3 WIM images ? are they all part of one master image or 3 separate images ?

The 3 Wim images are part of the recovery.

 

VistaAudit.wim --> contains the temporary C drive to finalize OOBE to active the recovery files

WindowsRE.wim --> Contains the recovery boot

recovery.wim --> CONTAINS THE recovery image (in as a .txt) that needs to be renamed at the end as can been seen at the end of the batch file

 

Since both are microsoft solutions i was hoping to connect them together so its an automated job when installing new pc's

or creating an image of the total HDD (not just C or D) like for example ghost

 

 

Thanks in advance.
