Thank you cdob for your reply. I can answer the first two questions. I use legacy boot over UEFI to allow for booting to the WinPE thumb drive on both the G-5 and G-10. I am not sure about MBR or GPT layouts I will give your suggestion of bcdboot /f UEFI and let you know. All the best,
Hello and hoping you are all doing well and staying healthy. I am relatively new to using WinPE, I am currently using .wim files to image a multiple partitioned HP ProLiant DL380 Gen 10 server with Server 2016. I have created and wrote to all the partitions with no errors. When I attempt to write the boot files to the 100MB boot partition using: "C:\Windows\System32\bcdboot" "C:\Windows" /s "B:" the return is "Boot files successfully created" when I attempt to boot into the OS, I get the Windows logo then an error saying can't find boot files? In WinPE when I change to the B: drive and provide the command dir /a it shows two files created in B: bootmgr and BOOTNXT and the Boot directory which has multiple files in it. Now the strange thing is, when I do the same thing on a HP ProLiant DL380 Gen 5 server everything works fine. I have been beating my head against the wall on this one for weeks so finally decided to create a post. My apologies as I don't have the experience many of you have. I am an installer by trade but forced to perform System Engineer work due to loosing my SE. Thank all of you that read and respond ahead of time. All the best,
