Does anyone know you can, or know where i can find the relevant i for customizing the partitioning part of the Windows 7 installer I cant find any info on this part of the setup process, does it use a diskpart script in the background or is it a custom partitioning built i to the setup and such? The main reasons i want to play around with it: i want to be able to customise it so i can potentially optimise it better (if it is doable i imagine it would be the same process in the win 10 installer, since it’s seems to be based on the same code and the default win10 boot partitions are done badly and it would save me manually diskparting them later) Plus i plan on doing some windows xp installs in wim format to install via the win 7 installer And win xp requires some specific parameters for the partitioning Any info is welcome, thanks
I know drive letter X: is for preboot environment but while partitioning in diskpart i want to assign letter X to my one of my drives. It is showing error as it is for preboot by default can you please let me know how can i do this?
I am attempting to run a light-touch to unattended imaging process from a USB, however i run into an error. I am running an error during the assignment of a drive letters several lines into my batch script. I have a 2 part imaging system that i call a batch file, and it runs through and is supposed to apply my wim as an image. During the part that it calls to for diskpart as part of my imaging i get an error. The initial batch is as follows: diskpart /s part2.txt copy u:\test.wim d: x:\imagex.exe /apply d:\test.wim 1 d: d:\windows\system32\bcdboot d:\windows exit During the diskpart it calls to a text file for the diskpart commands noting: select disk 0 clean create partition primary size=80 select partition 1 format fs=ntfs label="system" quick assign letter=C active create partition primary select partition 2 format fs=ntfs label="windows" quick assign letter=D select disk 1 select partition 1 assign letter=U exit It goes throught the script all the way until it tries to assign drive letter D, then it throws an error. Virtual Disk Service error: The specified drive letter is not free to be assigned. Thusly bunking my entire automation. Everything works flawlessly if i run the entire diskpart section by hand, however it will not work in a diskpart batch. HELP!?!?!
Hello! There are many similar topics regarding Windows 8 deployment... I tried to google and check out as many as I could. Wasn able to solve my issue though. I'm writing here, hoping that someone might be able to help me out. I am trying to deploy Windows 8 put problems with starting it. I have new Samsung laptop, where I have installed Windows 8 Pro. Iinstalled programs, created user-accounts etc.Then I bootel laptop from USB WinPE media and captured C:\ drive as a *.WIM file. So far everyting OK. I got second laptop (same model). Booted it also from Winpe USB media and used Diskpart to clean-create partition and format it as NTFS. I created just this one partition. On that partition I applyed the wery-same image that I previously created. Image was applyed and then started problems. --> bcdboot c:\windows is not working. --> Failure when attemting to copy boot files. --> I also tried bcdboot c:\windows /s c: --> Boot files successfully created. But after this OS isnt booting, still. Anyway, this is where I got stuck. Please help me out.
