Yes, you need Vista PE to recognize the HDD before you can deploy images to. It only requires 3 steps, providing that you have already installed MS Windows AIK:

1) "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\imagex" /mountrw "%Drive%\Dev\WinPE\HOME_PE20\boot.wim" 1 %Drive%\imagex


- "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\imagex" is the path and filename of the Imagex.exe

- /mountrw "%Drive%\Dev\WinPE\HOME_PE20\boot.wim" is to mount the boot.wim boot image with read and write access

- 1 is the first image within boot.wim

- %Drive%\imagex is where the directory where you mount your boot.wim into

2) "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\peimg.exe" /inf=%Drive%\Dev\00_OEM_DRV\XP\RAID\vmscsi.inf %Drive%\imagex\Windows


- "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\peimg.exe" is the path and filename of the peimg.exe

- /inf=%Drive%\Dev\00_OEM_DRV\XP\RAID\vmscsi.inf is the path and filename of the device OEMSETUP.INF. In this case, it's VMware's mass storage controller

- %Drive%\imagex\Windows is the path to the Vista PE Windows root

3) "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\imagex" /unmount /commit %Drive%\imagex

....for dismounting the boot.wim image and the save the changes.

Place the boot.wim back into Vista PE. That's all.
