  1. Could I just use WinPE ro make a .wim backup of my windows 10 drive


    Would this be possible to do without sysprep, since I would only be usingdeploying this .wim as a backup for the exact same machine (serial number, windows version, etc.) All the stuff that ssysprep generalizes?

  2. Add packages to WinPE version 10.0.15063.0

    I am unable to add any packages to my WinPE wim file using DISM.

    I consistently get the following error:

    Error: 0x800f081e

    The specified package is not applicable to this image

    Does anyone have any suggestions or workarounds?

    After Windows 10 WIM deploy, system fails to boot

    I have some brand new notebooks (they are HP Z Book G4 Studios). From the state I received the units, I wanted to deploy the company image, instead of using what came loaded by the factory.

    Before posting, I did search this site and I did look at: Applied wim file does not correctly boot

    No help.

    Deploying the WIM failed. It's a Windows 10 WIM. The WIM had the HP drivers added to it... if there was a problem with the drivers, I would expect a BSOD. But that is NOT the problem as no BSOD is received.

    Here are the steps I took:

    1. Press F9 to access boot menu
    2. Connect USB DVD drive with WinPE disc inserted
    3. Boot to WinPE (created with the latest version of the AIK/ADK or whatever MS is calling it these days).
    4. Run the following diskpart commands: select disk 0, clean, create partition primary, format fs=ntfs quick, assign letter=c:, and active
    5. Run dism /apply-image /imagefile:e:\myWIM.wim /index:1 /applydir:c:\
    6. Run bcdboot c:\windows /s c:
    7. Exit WinPE and reboot.

    After exiting and the subsequent reboot, I get an OS not found error right after POST.

    I booted into the installation media, rescue mode, and ran:

    bootrec.exe /fixmbr
    bootrec.exe /fixboot
    bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

    The bootrec.exe command returns:

    Successfully scanned Windows Installations
    Total identified Windows Installations: 1
    Add installation to boot list? Yes/No/All:

    So I enter Y

    ...and it fails!!!

    I can go to c:\ and do a dir and see the file system as expected (so again, assuming so WIM integrity problems).

    1. Is there anything special about doing this on Win 10 that is different (Win 10 does put a 100 MB and 450MB partition on the drive when it does a clean install right? Recovery areas and such?
    2. When I do the diskpart clean, that wipes those two partitions out. How critical are they to run?
    3. I've used the same process which worked on Windows 7 -- are there BIOS settings, partitioning, etc., which is preventing this from booting for me? I haven't had such problems before; just with Win 10.

    The drive from the factory was gpt. I did run diskpart convert mbr. The whole process failed in the same way

    Suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!!!
