AIO DVD Build - DISM Acting Up

Recommended Posts

I have built myself a small DISM script to unpack a clean Windows 7 SP1 image and compile an up to date disc, which I run every month. I have gotten to the point where I am running it over and over again, taking days, just waiting for the one time it works. Eventually it always does.

My custom error log, which basically just tells me if I have an error or not, shows this:

[no problems with index 1-7]

So I can keep multiple install.wim's around and keep exporting the images that worked into a final image, all done manually, but DONE MANUALLY? yeah not cool. A snippet from the DISM log has been attached.

Why does this seem to work sometimes, but not all the time? I also use this script to update Windows Vista and 8, again sometimes working sometimes not. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with all updates and my antivirus disabled (Symantec Endpoint Protection). Windows 8 ADK is installed, I wanted to see if it fixed this problem. It didn't. Once in a while unmounting an image will also fail claiming files are in use, which they shouldn't be. I've tried finding the services responsible and I can't. Unlocker can't identify the process or remove the files manually without rebooting.

I am not dual booting or booting from a VHD or anything advanced. It's a very simple setup with one partition, one user account (admin with UAC disabled). I have a Lenovo T520 i5-2520M 8GB with OCZ 256GB Vertex 3 SSD.

I'm not sure if any other information is relevant. Does anyone else have a similar issue? I have no idea what is going on.

EDIT: In retrospect I probably should have put this in the Unattended forum, although my question isn't exactly about the unattended process. MOD feel free to move as required.
