WDS - Capturing Image - unable to see a volume

Hi guys

We have a Vmware machine that is running Windows Deployment Services on Server 2008 R2. We use this to install images via the PXE boot option. So I had an issue first with the USB/Keyboard not picking up during the installation and thankfully the experts here pointed me in the direction of injecting drivers into the boot.wim.

Now, I am unable to capture an image because there is no volume that is seen in the 'Directory To Capture' section. Do I have to inject some sort of drivers into the image here also? If so, what drivers? Is it the disk drivers?

Thanks for helping

Install ALL drivers that are for your motherboard!

hi Andy

You mean install the drivers on WDS section where it says 'Drivers'?

Thanks

Storage controller is the problem if you can't see the disks.  If the capture drop down doesn't show anything (and especially if you're using a newer capture image based off Windows 10), then you haven't run sysprep.  Capture can only see volumes that have been sealed with sysprep.
