I have been trying to use different image software to take an image of the machine. I have read a couple of blogs that says you need to use BCEDIT to define the boot drive. Mind you that windows 7 installs with 2 paritions by default. One for bitlocker and the other where the operating system sits on. I have ran into countless blogs where one blog says to insert the bcedit script here and the other says to enter it here. Does anyone have any step by step instructions for installing windows 7 where I can specify the correct partition in order to prep this for an image to deploy.

If you create the partition before installing Windows then you can install it into one single partition without any problem. This MSR partition of 100MB usually contains Boot folder and BootMGR file. So they are stored on the same system partition when you install OS onto formatted partition. Use any third party tool to format the partition before installation. It can be done from boot CD of partitioning tool.
