Posted on 2014-03-10
I have capture a Windows 8.1 wim file using Windows PE (USB) boot on a share on our network and now I am trying to Deploy this image but I copied this WIM Image file into another USB stick. The scenario is that I have 2 USB sticks one with Windows PE boot and the other with Windows 8.1 wim file but I have used those commands stated below in order to deploy the image to this machine but I had no success on do it.
This is the prompt I used:
x:\Windows\maintenance\scripts\net use F: \\Images\windows81_wim
System error 85 has occurred.
The local device name is already in use.
x:\Windows\maintenance\scripts\ApplyImage.bat " created on USB Windows PE boot but it formats the disk but doesn't install the image (wim) of Windows81.
so what else is missing? how can I install this wim file using 2 USB keys:
Key 1 - USB Windows PE boot
Key 2 - USB with Windows 8.1 wim file (Image)
Can you help?
