Hi all
Winpe built with WAIK 3.1 imagex
Sysprep answer file to close Windows

Built tonnes of images and they have deployed ok (images are stored on network) and loaded by a GUI hta in the winpe.

Just recently after deployment, windows hangs on "Setup is starting services" and doesn't boot
If I move to another desk and try again it works fine. Yesterday I deployed the same image 8 times. Today everyone of them hangs at that location, tried from another desk and it works ok. Is this a network issue?

Hi, I don't know if this will help your issue, but when I have had issues with Windows booting or loading, while WinPE is displaying the HTA, press F8.  In the console
Type: diskpart
Type: select disk 0
Type: clean

Then reboot and try to load the image again.

sorry can we remove this question? it turned out to be simple technician error. we run diskpart from the winpe, but the commands are pulled from the server. they were not pressing the "connect" button prior to the "clean disk" button. thus there was no connection to the server, and thus disk part was not running.
