I am trying to boot and image a Lenovo T-400 from my WDS sever.

I keep getting the error message attached.  

I have inserted the proper Windows 7 driver for the Windows 7 boot .wim image I have but it still will not start.  Any one have any ideas?

I would ask if you're absolutely certain you have inserted the drivers and inserted them properly.

Make sure you've added the PE network driver, not the normal windows driver.

Try adding this driver to the image using the DISM command.

@tmassa99---

I think I need 64bit boot.win drivers because I get this error message:


PEIMG failed to complete the operation with status code 0x800f0100

It doesn't appear that there is a 64-bit driver for Win7, but for Vista.  Is this the one you've added?

Here is a link to the driver pack for PE: http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=555&l=en&s=biz&releaseid=R256034&formatcnt=0&libid=0&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=375689

Apparently, adding the Dell WinPE drivers may help in your case.  Just extract the folder of drivers, and run the DISM command using the /RECURSE option to add them all:

dism /image:C:\path_to_local\mount /Add-Driver /Driver:c:\path-to\extracted\drivers /RECURSE

Still getting the same error inserting the same drivers from the URL provided.

DSIM? I'm being totally dense. Which command is that? I doesn't run from my install.

My answer is based on creating WIM images of XP computers using the WAIK for Windows 7.  It may not be completely appropriate for WDS.  Here's a doc I created for my helpdesk users to create a boot.wim and inject drivers.  You can probably use the WAIK tools to mount the image on your computer and inject the drivers using the DISM command.

Hope it can lead you to the answer

Windows 7 WAIK. It's the latest version, I believe.

OK I finally got DISM working and injecting drivers.

Unfortunately, I till can't get the PE section to load and start the image process.

I have loaded all of the drivers above that were listed in the URLs.

Have you verified network connectivity is the problem.  Can you boot into PE and ping anything?

The machine pxe boots so I know it's functioning. The problem is finding the proper PE driver to continue the imaging process.

Getting nowhere and I don't think it's either of our faults.

When I use Win7 AIK and DISM, driver insertion works.

Boot from the image and driver doesn't load.

I then open the command prompt and browse to x;\windows\system32\driverstore\fileRepository and my drivers aren't there.

I can then from the command prompt manually use drvload to load the driver and initialize a network connection.

I then decided to try the vista AIK on my 2003 server.

I then used peimg etc and the drivers loaded 100% as usual with a vista boot.wim file

I then boot from this new wim file and the same effects. The drivers ar not loded or listed. However, if I mount the image the drivers appear in both index:1 and index:2

What have I missed?

Not sure as I haven't use WDS, just a PXE server and a boot.wim file for WIM imaging clients from a server share.  I would start from scratch with the WDS setup, but that's just the way I am.

You may want to check out the MSFN boards...there are some pretty good folks there that have assisted me before.  http://www.msfn.org/board/

Found my answer. After pulling my hair out, it turns out that the AIK for Windows 7 MUST be installed on Windows 7 for proper functionality   Similarly, when working with a Vista boot.wim file.

Call me crazy but MS should not allow the stall of this AIK on XP machines or at least warn about editing on the wim files.
