Creating image - Won't boot to WinPE after "Prepare for Image Capture"
I'm not sure if this is a simple issue or not, but I figured, I'd throw it out here to see if anyone knew why this is happening.
Recently, I've been trying to create a 32-bit image for our organization. We're using Deployment Solution 7.1 When doing so, I understand that the required steps are to create the image that's needed, run the "Prepare for Image Capture" Job, then let the machine boot into PE and let the image be created, and then reboot the system again.
Unfortunately, after creating my base image and running the "Prepare for Image Capture" job, 9 times out of 10, my machines have been refusing to boot all the way into PXE. They start PXE booting and even find the PXE server, but after that, they get the "Altiris preselect automation processing" message and the system proceeds booting from the hard disk. I know that this usually happens due to the system being a managed machine and deleting the record for the machine will let me into PE.I
If I try to create an image from that, Altiris won't let me redeploy the created image however because it won't let me apply a product key to the image. I've been going through this process for a few days now and every so often after the "Prepare for Image Capture" step, I'm allowed into PE, but it's the exception and not the rule.
Is there something else that I should be doing in order to get this working?
