Need help with imaging Windows 7 (64)

Recommended Posts

I need help imaging Windows 7 (64) Enterprise. I have been trying to use both the BrianJackson WinPE3.1 with GimageX on a usb stick and also a build using just ImageX. I can capture the image with both ImageX and Gimagex but I have been unable to apply the image. GImageX will look at the captured image and after a while will just close. If I try to apply it using Imagex then after a bit I see a message pop on the screen that says my PC has encountered a problem and then reboots. I have been unable to read the entire message before it reboots but it does not apply the image.

 

I have tried using diskpart with no system partition created as one person told me that they do not use or create that and it works. The Microsoft pages all tell me that I have to create the Windows system partition but even doing that does not work. The times that I have managed to get a different image onto the computer the system will not boot and when trying to run BCDEdit and BCDBoot tell me there is no configuration store and so boot files never get copied to that partition.

 

 

We do not have a Microsoft network so we are not using Active Directory or SCCM so deployment is not an option.

 

The hardware that I am capturing the image from is identical to the hardware that I am applying it to and those are Intel DQ67 motherboards with 500gb hard drives and 8gb ram.

 

Can someone help me find what I am missing in this process? It does not seem that hard and should work but definitely has not worked yet.

 

Thank you.

I did manage to get an image to upload and download using GimageX. As I said before, BCDEdit did not work because it could not find a store and so I coul not set a default.

BCDBoot.exe x:\windows /s e: did work where the drive letter that got the new image.
