Hi,

I'm trying to deploy Windows 7 x64 using WDS with MDT2010 on a HP Compaq Pro 4300.

When i boot into Windows PE, it hangs while loading the boot image "Windows is loading files" and gets stuck.

I'tried to add the network driver to Out-of-Box Drivers in the deployment workbench, and then generate a new boot image.
I've also tried to add the drivers to WDS, and then add them to the boot image through the GUI, and by using imagex and dism. The network driver is added successfully.

I'm able to deploy Windows on different machines, but on the HP Compaq Pro 4300 it get stuck.

Any suggestions?

A brief update.
I tried to upgrade to MDT2012 and inject all the HP Compaq Pro 4300 drivers into the boot image, but same result.
I tried to change the Storage Settings in the BIOS from AHCI to IDE - same result
Changed the MaximumBlockSize in WDS to 1456 - same result.

I'm able to deploy Windows on other machines, but on the HP 4300 it fails.

Any suggestions appriciated!
