Windows failed to start



  • I am not sure if this has been addressed in a different thread, please excuse me if that is the case.

    After uploading a Win7 sysprepped image from some computers, I get the following fail on first boot.

    I found out that I could prevent this by using an image sysprepped on a [B]different machine[/B], in my case a VMware virtual machine, where I used standard IDE for the disk, not SATA. I added machine specific drivers to the image by using [URL=‘http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744355(v=ws.10).aspx’]dism.exe[/URL] from WinPE before uploading the image from VMware, to make it proper for the machine in question.

    I hope this can be helpful to anyone with the same problem.
