I'm trying to build an image for deploying computers for our organization and I've been using the following blog as a guide:

Customizing the Default User Profile in Windows 7 (Part 3)

I've reached the step just below figure 5 when I have to import the new captured WIM image from the deployment share but I'm getting the following error:

Performing operation "import" on Target "Operating system".
Unable to get information for WIM file \\hostname\DeploymentShare\Captures\STEP-2.wim.
System.Exception: Unable to open the specified WIM file. ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The data is invalid
   --- End of inner exception stack trace ---
   at Microsoft.BDD.Core.BDDWimFile..ctor(String wimPath, Boolean forUpdate)
   at Microsoft.BDD.PSSnapIn.ImportOperatingSystem.ImportWim(String sourceWim, String directoryName, String setupDir, Boolean moveFile)
Import processing finished.


I thought it may have been a corrupt wim file so I re-captured another image, but I get the same results.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

A.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. It was a corrupt WIM file. When I tried to extract it, all that showed up was an .xml file.

I did another sysprep + capture and it worked perfectly.

Thanks,

A.
