  1. PE Installation Problem

    Thanks for replying, the hard disk is 80gb so it should be ok and I can install Windows 7 onto the Dell via a recovery disk and that works ok, the Dell has 2gb of RAM installed in it.
  2. PE Installation Problem

    Hi All, I am having a problem with a PE installation, basically I created a 10GB wim image from a 64bit HP machine, I have successfully deployed the image to a virtual machine, however as I don't have any spare HP's knocking about I am trying to apply the image to an old Dell we have lying around. I use Diskpart to clean the C drive and then install the image onto the disk exactly like I do on the VM, however on the Dell when I try to boot it afterwards I get this error: Fie:\Windows\System32\winload.exe Status:0xc00000e Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt. Does anyone know why this might be happening? Have I done something wrong or is it a compatibility issue between the two different machines I am using? Many thanks
  3. Hi All, Not used the WSIM before and have been following some videos on how to create a unattended Windows 7 install from a website http://www.professormesser.com/ The chap on this website seems to be able to use the WSIM to create a autounattend.xml file and then install it on the VM machine using Oracle Vritualbox (I want to install the Windows activation key at a later date) I can't get this to work on the VM, I tested it on a actual laptop and the install started, but using the VM machine I get the following error message: "Windows cannot locate the disk and partition specified in the unattend answer file's <ImageInstall>setting. Make sure the setting references a valid partition and restart the application" So obviously the way the autounattend is setup missing something in terms of the disk partition but I'm not sure what? The laptop I started the install on successfully has just the C drive partition so I'm a bit confused. Here is the contents of my autounattend file that this site claims contains the minimum about of info need to create a Windows install: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <SetupUILanguage> <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage> </SetupUILanguage> <UILanguage>en-US</UILanguage> </component> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <UserData> <ProductKey> <Key></Key> </ProductKey> <AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula> </UserData> <ImageInstall> <OSImage> <InstallToAvailablePartition>true</InstallToAvailablePartition> </OSImage> </ImageInstall> </component> </settings> <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="catalog://edward/cusers/edward mallett/wims/install_windows 7 professional.clg" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" /> </unattend> If anyone has any ideas as to why this isn't working I would be very grateful. Many thanks.
