Okay.  I just started using Windows Deployment Services (WDS) to produce systems for our company.  I have had no problem getting our client systems to work, however I am having some problems with creating our controller systems.  The controllers are running a raid mirror on 2 SATA WD 80g hdd's using the Intel ICH6 controller built into the motherboard.  I can capture the image just fine, however when I install the image on another (or even the same) computer, it boot loops.  Any ideas?

1) Check the boot.ini file to see that it is the same.

2) When you are restoring, are you even sure that both drives are getting the image ( not just one ), since the RAID controller may not be fully recognized.

3) Check the RAID controller config to see if there is something there that could affect deployment/ restore.

4) try to see if both drives are properly synched after the WDS

5) Use abootable Linux ( knoppix, Ubuntu ) to see the data on the drive.

I hope this helps !

Sorry about the delay, I have to go on site a lot and thus i've been out of the office for a few weeks.  I'll try this again tomorrow and report any new findings.
