How to deploy an image captured in WDS through BDD2007

We have just started using BDD2007 and WDS to deploy images of Windows XP. I've managed to create the boot image and have an OS from the Windows XP source disc. I have now created a reference PC, syspreped it and captured an image using a WDS capture image. When I go back to BDD and add a new OS from WDS it all goes through fine and I can then create a build and customise Sysprep.inf and Unattend.txt so the language selections/time zones are correct. The problem comes when I try to deploy the image. I boot the Lite Touch Windows PE, select the correct image etc. When it gets to the apply image stage, it all stops and the summary screen says:

The image \\server\REMINST\Images\New Builds\build.wim was not applied successfully by ImageX, rc=2
ZTI ERROR - Non-zero return code by LTIApply, rc=2
ZTI ERROR - Non-zero return code by LTIApply, rc=2
Non-zero return code executing command "X:\Deploy\Tools\X86\TsmBootstrap.exe" /env:SAStart, rc=-2147467259

When creating a deployment share using a custom image, you need to include all the setup files with the image.  When asked the location for the setup files, just point to the original DVD.

Thanks for that

The guide is more for using BDD exclusively and I'm using Windows Deployment Services to capture the image for me. I can get it to work if I export the image from WDS and then Import it back into BDD. This is a bit messy though and you end up with multiple copies of the same image and you also don't benefit from WDS only keeping one copy of files that exist in multiple images.

I found that this doesn't seam to be possible. Think the only way is to export the image from WDS and import it back into BDD2007.
