'Reboot to Production' task fails with Return Code 1

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm imaging a computer and, after its first boot, I'd like to reboot it before commencing software installs. Every time I try to reboot, though, it returns with a 1 code and fails. It reboots fine in the PE, but once it boots into Windows, it consistently fails. Are there any common issues that see this error?

Thanks,

Will

EDIT: I'm running the most recent version of Altiris 7.1.

I'm not sure if I'm remembering this right but try putting another reboot to windows Task immediately after the first. Although I think I did this in WinPE.

Is there anything in the Altiris log?

Thanks Andy, it looks like the Power Options task ended up letting me reboot, so I found a workaround. Are the reboot to... tasks only meant to be used in the PEs?

Hello Will

You are correct, the reboot to are meant to boot from one environment to another. As you found out to just restart machine you have to use power option task.

Best regards
