SDR Recovery (BE 2012)

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Has anyone done a Win 7 recovery with SDR?

When we SDR we have the following issues when the new machine starts up for the first time:

The machine hangs on "Setting your computer up for the first time" and never completes.

The OS being restored is Windows 7 x64

 

If we do these instructions the computer will boot into windows fine (basically kill windeploy.exe)

Following the above instructions we also noticed that the default profile seems to be overwritten with the last user who logged in, so something is going on with how BackupExec is building the new machine that doesn't seem to be correct.

Hi Jeff,

For the error message you received during boot:

You can try simply disabling sysprep by adding Runsetup=0  and run the SDR recovery process again.

Please refer below technote for disabling sysprep process:

This will make sure, all user profiles are in tact.
