How can I stop windows pe from assigning drive letters to non-existent removable drives?
Posted on 2014-07-14
I am trying to reimage a new Acer X4360 using WDS on a 2012 R2 server. I have used the same boot and install images on a number of laptops with a similar setup - a 120Gb SSD booting in UEFI mode.
The desktops stop after partitioning the drive (single partition) with the error "Windows Setup cannot locate a hard drive with enough free space to store temporary installation files....."
Opening a command prompt and using diskpart shows three disks and three volumes, C, D and E
Drive C is the SSD, but D and E show as removable with 0 free space and do not exist. I believe they are the card readers. From my research I understand Windows won't install if there is a drive with 0 free space. How can I stop the drive letters being assigned?
