WDS deploy XP
Posted on 2009-07-01
we have installed WDS on our server 2003 standard edition (running in mixed mode with RIS)
we have managed to create a boot wim and a capture wim and successfully taken an image of 1 pc.
when we try and deploy the image back to the same pc that we imaged, we get an error saying that no images are available. but if we manually use the imagex command the image applies fine.
we've done loads of surfing and don't believe it to be a HAL issue as its deploying to the same pc that was imaged? we have turned on architecture discovery and that reveals that the HW is x64 (but the image was x86 - is this the problem?)
the PC is a Dell Optiplex 755 with the latest BIOS and network drivers provided (we also have a Dell 760 that refuses to even take a capture wim because of the network drivers.... anyone heard anymore on Dell's supposed driver update on this model?)
in the setupact/setuperror log we just get no images are available 0x80070002 & gle=0x00000002
any help really would be appreciated.
