Basically the issue is the build will complete successfully but when you view the permissions set on C: there are corrupt permissions there, such as:
Administrators (HOSTNAME\Administrators) : Full Control
S-1-5-21-918433936-2086638591-69549339-1108 : Modify
S-1-5-21-918433936-2086638591-69549339-1112 : Read & Execute
It's obviously not matching the SID with the group (SYSTEM & Users I think) but I'm not sure why.. the permission on the folders below are set correctly??
Here's the build process we're using (this has been done in vbscript but I've listed it here in batch script for readability..):
select disk 0
create partition primary
select partition 1
format quick fs=ntfs label="SYSTEM"
copy M:\Deploy\Builds\OPTIMIZED\subbuild\unattend.txt c:\Source\Control\*.*
copy M:\Deploy\Builds\OPTIMIZED\subbuild\sysprep.inf c:\Sysprep\*.*
imagex /apply M:\Build\Source\WindowsXPSP3.wim 1 C:
copy "C:\Source\Control\Build.cmd" "X:\Build.cmd" : (See below for build.cmd details..)
cscript //nologo M:\Control\updatedrvpath.vbs C:\Source\Control\unattend.txt c:\drivers
cscript //nologo M:\Control\updatedrvpath.vbs C:\SysPrep\SysPrep.inf c:\drivers
C:\Source\OS\i386\winnt32.exe /unattend1:C:\Source\Control\unattend.txt /s:C:\Source\OS\i386 /s:C:\Source\OS\i386 /s:C:\Source\OS\i386 /s:C:\Source\OS\i386 /s:C:\Source\OS\i386 /s:C:\Source\OS\i386 /s:C:\Source\OS\i386 /s:C:\Source\OS\i386 /syspart:c: /tempdrive:c: /copysource:lang /debug4:C:\source\OSdebug.log
I've tested the wim (I386) source is okay and not corrupt, have created a new version of the unattend.txt using MDT2008 Update 1 and this also gives me the same corrupt permissions.. so it must me an issue with my process and with SP3??
This also does not seem to be hardware specific, virtual or physical I get the same results..
Any ideas why this might be happening??
