Hey guys
I just set up a windows deployment system, and created a few  images.  I  went back to organize all my install files by creating new groups and moving all the install.wim files into its associated department groups.

I tried to do a test deploy but I got back an error saying unable to locate installation files, at this point I tried to add install image.... with in WDS server under the install groups and I got another error saying "a device attached to the system is not functioning"

my question is : is there a correct way to move and re organize file structures within the wds install images ? and now that all my images are un-usable, how can I get them going again?

Hello

In the WDS console you have the option to export  image to a wim file, then you can reimport it into the rigth group. Did you made your changes using the console?
If not it is a exe file that can also help: wdsutil.exe
