Errors when using imagex on T500 Laptops

2008-09-16, 21:14 PM

Greetings,

 

I've been using windows PE and imagex to deploy a standard image to my laptops and desktops which are running Windows Vista (I've used it for Dell Desktops and some T61 boxes).  I've successfully used sysprep to prepare the image (sysprep /oobe /generalize /shutdown) then used imagex to capture an image.

 

After applying the image to my T500, I get a message that BootMGR is missing.  I used a Windows Recovery Disk to fix that problem.  After that, I get a message related to a missing oobe.xml file. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?  This error has to be related to how lenovo is setting up these boxes as I've not had the issue with any other machines I've imaged using these techniques.

Try to set Harddrive to "compatibility mode" from BIOS that may help.

That took care of the bootmgr message.

 

However, when booting I get the following error message in a box labled "Install Windows" - 

 

"Windows could not start the installation process."
