Ghosting Win7 64bit client on 2008r2 HyperV host - Unattended.xml error
Ghost version is 220.127.116.116.
I'm trying to Ghost a freshly installed Windows 7 SP1 64 Bit client that is running on a Win 2008 R2 Hyper-V host. I installed the Ghost client through the Remote Client Install. I made the necessary changes to allow the C$ share to be written to by the client install process. Firewall is disabled. Client reports successful install.
I'm using the WinPE pre-OS option. When I attempt to image the Windows 7 machine, the task starts and I see the notification on the client machine that a task is in process. The client machine never reboots and fails on the "To Virtual Partition" step. With the error of: "Failed to update unattended.xml file".
I've tried deleting the INCOMING\WinPE folder. I've tried using WinPE-512. Same result.
I browsed the forum and read that error is typically related to the NIC or Disk Controller driver. Since the client is running on a hyper-V host, the NIC driver on the Win7 client is reported as "Microsoft Virtual Machine Bus Network Adapter #2". I'm not sure which driver I would need.
As a test, I tried using the PCDOS option and the client does reboot, but does not find a network driver, which is expected.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
