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 

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

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.
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.
