Windows 7 HII image crashs with Dell 790 hdd with AF technology
I made up an image for Windows 7 x64 Hardware Independant Image that has been working with our Dell Optiplex 790's. A second order of them was made, now all of a sudden the 790's contain hard disks with Advanced Format (AF) technology built in. Now my HII image will not work. i recive the mesage continuously: "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware". This happens during the mini setup of Windows 7.
Our first order of Dell 790's did not contain AF hard disks and they are fine with the HII. The second order that has AF hard disks are not working. The image was done with RDeploy, but after re-builing the image with RDeploy and Ghost to figure out what is breaking the image I am coming up with nothing. We are using WINPE 2.1 that is out of the box with Altiris DS 7.1. Is WINPE 3.0/3.1 the absolute solution to all of this????? If so has that been tested and approved? I have to get this fixed as soon as I can.
