I have the new WinPE 4.0 and on the Dell 990 I can not get it to recongize the hard drive. I am booting from a usb which it recognizes with no problem. Here is what it sees:

C: - USB Drive
D: - CD/DVD-Rom
X: - WinPE
Z: - Network Drive


I have loaded several storage drivers just for the Dell 990 and even got the cab file for Pre-Installation use. When ever I use diskpart it sees the hard drive but it does not have a letter assigned to it. When I manually assign a letter to it, WinPE still does not see it. Any suggestions?

Oh, I am trying to capture an image of the computer with imagex through WinPE. This process works on all other machines accept the Dell 990 & 960.

Here is the capture script:
@echo off
echo Capturing Image ...
imagex /capture /boot C: z:\images\temp\temp.wim temp 
pause

Here is the WinPE script:
@echo off
wpeinit
net use Z: \\networkshare
cd /d Z:
powershell set-executionpolicy bypass
index.hta

Sooo... DISKPART "sees" the HDD. Does it "see" the Partition(s)? I assume that since you've done this already that you're "doing it" right.
-OR-
You didn't need to use DISKPART on the "other" PC's and are NOT "doing it" right?

What happens if you Detail Vol C after assigning this drive letter to it?

Also know that if you use WinPE 4.0 with Imagex, you can't capture a Windows 8 image. You have to use DISM instead.
