SCCM Image Capture Problem

I have been working with SCCM for a while now, and have been just recently testing the OS deployment functionality.  I am able to get Operating Systems deployed, however the problem this post represents is during the image capture process.

There is also another problem when deploying Windows 7, it by default installs to the D: drive, which is a separate conversation.  I spent hours, searched high and low, and concluded based on posts and blogs that the only way around this is to create custom images and deploy those, which is what i'm trying to do.  I am running SCCM 2007 R3.

The problem i'm having is when I boot off of the capture media and capture an image, no matter what the task sequence specifies (tried custom task sequences), it always ends up wiping the machine or reconfiguring something to where the OS needs to be reinstalled on the captured machine.  I don't know why this is, and have been attempting to search for an answer but have gotten nowhere.

To give you an example, when I "capture" a machine, after the capture is complete, the system reboots, then the screen indicates "Installing New Services", and I don't have the previous Windows installation.  I have tried creating a custom task sequence where it Reboots in Windows PE, then captures, but the same thing happens.  What am i missing?

I am looking for reference material that will help me answer my question or an SCCM expert or somewhere who has the capture process down so I can retain images all day long and not have to rebuild the machines that are processed.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

boot into windows pe

wasn't the explanation i was looking for, but nobody else responded.  helped me come to the realization that the machine was being sysprepped after the capture, so the data was still there.
