Hello,

I am deploying a new Windows 7 image and am getting the following error at 99%

Windows could not set the offline locale information. Error Code: 0x80FF0000

I hit SHIFT+F10 and check the log files. It doesn't create any. This is happening on 4 different systems with different hardware. Also errors out on a new VM created to test the imaging process.

The image was created using a VM in Hyper-V. Captured and deployed using WDS

Hi, I'd probably recreate and recapture your reference image. It appears there may be some corruption in your image that is being detected as a hard disk failure.
