Capturing an image fails because access is denied

Hello,

I have installed Windows Deployment Services on a 2012 R2 server, and have managed to add a Windows 10 boot image and install image from a Windows 10 installation disk.  However, when I try to create a capture image from the boot image, it fails because access is denied.  I am using a domain admin account, which has separately been added to the server's local administrators' group.  The domain admin account has full control over the RemoteInstall folder and subfolders created by WDS.

Can anyone help?

What are you using to capture the image?

One thing you need to do is sysprep it prior to capturing?

Not 100% sure with just using WDS, but in SCCM world  when capturing a computer image the reference computer cannot be part of the domain and the local administrator account has to be a blank password.  This may be the case for you.

Did you start the process elevated? (Right click - "run as administrator")? Being an admin alone is not elevating.

Hello yo_bee,

I'm trying to create a capture boot image from an existing Windows 10 boot image, rather than capture an install image from a reference computer.

Hello McKnife,

I have just started WDS "run as administrator", and once again the job has failed because access is denied.

This matter has now been resolved.  I was using a Windows 10 DVD from Dell.  When I downloaded a Windows 10 iso from Microsoft the capture was successful.  Interestingly, creating a capture image from a Windows 8 DVD from Dell also worked!

You mentioned something about Boot.wim and now you mention a thick image from Dell.
These are two totally different WIM's  the Boot.wim gets you in a Windows PE that allows you to capture the thick images you want.  

You question lacked a lot a important information that would have helped with suggesting a solution.
