  1. Hi @all After i have recorded the Setup with the '-r' switch, the setup keeps telling that there's some information missing (return code -3). After more investigation i've found that the first dialog won't get recorded - custom dialog maybe. Is there any way to get the name (DialogIdentifier) of the dialog so i can completet the iss file manually? thanks in advance!
  2. basically, its just the windows 8 setup source with an modified windows 7 install.wim including the drivers. Tested with Windows 7/8 Enterprise sources. i don't know if its working with multi language wim's but i assume that the setup mechanism of windows 8 is almost the same beside of some minor adapations. so it should work too Here's a step by step guide: 1. copy the complete content of the Windows 8 DVD into your install source directory copy DVD:\*.* C:\InstallSource\OS\W7x642. Copy the install.wim from Windows Windows 7 source to a temp directory copy DVD:\sources\install.wim C:\temp\install.wim3. Create a directory for the drivers to include and save them there (e.g. c:\temp\wimdrivers) 4. Use DISM to mount and include the drivers dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:"C:\temp\install.wim" /Index:1 /MountDir:"C:\temp\wimtemp"dism /Image:"C:\temp\wimtemp" /Add-Driver /Driver:"C:\temp\wimdrivers" /Recurse /ForceUnsigneddism /UnMount-Wim /Mountdir:"c:\temp\wimtemp" /Commit 5. Now copy the updated install.wim back to the installation source (overwrite the existing copy C:\temp\install.wim C:\InstallSource\OS\W7x64\sources /y
  3. thanks for your reply the driver injection works whithout any error. But after the bootfile ist transferred, the winpe won't boot correclty. the windows 8 logo shows up and get stuck with the circle turning ... forever. searched a while for another driver and found one whiche has both information NT5.2 and NT6.2 but it didn't change anything. meanwhile i've found another approach which gives me a workaround. i exchanged the windows 7 setup files with the ones from the windows 8 DVD but still used the install.wim from the windows 7 sources. et voilà the only thing to do is to incllude the the controller drivers in the install.wim this workaround may not be officially supported but it works
  4. WinPE 4 and Windows 7 storage driver (critical) problem Hi @all i'm triyin to create a universal staging platform. As base i want ot use a WinPE 4 x64 image which gets delivered via PXE and then start the setup process in unattend mode from a network share. The installation works fine on VMWare or machines where the hardware is already supported. i've only a problem with hardware which needs driver included. The setup starts but stops with the Error "Windows cannot locate the disk and partition specified in the unatted answer file's <ImageInstall>. Make sure the setting references a valid partition and restart the installation" Further investigation shows that the setup needs a driver to continue the installation. The same behaviour is shown if i use a DVD as installation media. After providing the driver Required, the installation will complete without any interruptions. But i would like to do this in unattend mode. The logfile "setupact.log" shows me the installation cannot continue because of the missing driver: 2013-12-18 11:01:56, Info IBSLIB DiskRegionSupportsCapability:Disk [0] is BLOCKED against capability [CanInstall] for the following reasons... 2013-12-18 11:01:56, Info IBSLIB LogReasons: [bLOCKING reason for disk 0: CanInstall] Windows needs the driver for device [intel® C600 Series Chipset SATA RAID Controller]. Click 'Load Driver' and load the required device driver. Usually the driver needed for the setup are taken from the boot.wim. As using WinPE 4 for booting, the drivers are incompatible to the OS getting installed. Injecting the Win 7 drivers into the WinPE 4 image will cause the WinPE stop from working (stuck at boot). What i've tried so far: - including the dirver in pass "windowsPE" <driverpath> ... --> setup start and "expands Windows sources" but fails with error: "windows cannot continue because a reqiuired driver could not be installed" setupact.log says: 2013-12-18 13:45:37, Error [0x0602a9] IBS CallBack_AddDriverPackageIntoDriverStore:Failed to install the driver package [c:\drivers\storage\iaAHCI.inf].
