I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello there.I am very new to MDT 2010, so please take it easy.I was running the RC and managed to successfully build a test Win7 image from a Reference machine. I did this by deploying the standard Enterprise image, but rather than 'capture' it straight after, I did some test tweeking to the image, as this is what our company requires. Once happy,from the reference machine, I opened upthe "litetouch.vbs" script from the DeploymentShare$\Scriptsand invoked a 'sysprep and capture' task I had previous created. This ran perfectly, created my custom OS back to the server and I was then able todeploy it to my test target.OK - so I was quite excited by all this - so far, so good.Yesterday, I installed the new 'final release' of MDT 2010 and Ispent some more time on my reference machine, making sure it was 'perfect' as a base release.Once happy, I browsed back the DeploymentShare$ to run "litetouch.vbs" and although the wizarddoes start, allowing me to choose a Task Sequenceand take me through credentials - at the end of the wizard, it just ends - nojob is started.Sometimes when I run the .vbs,I get a 'wizard error' popup ... "A connection to the deployment share () could not be made. The deployment will not proceed".Things I have done: rebooted both client and server. Recreated the 'sysprep and capture' job. Updated the MDT.Can anyone help?

I'm attempting to use the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 to deploy Windows 7. When I attempt to update the deployment share, I get the following message: "Unable to mount the WIM, so the update process cannot continue."Not surprisingly the boot folders do not have the proper files created for the Win PE (which is the goal of updating the deployment share).

A:Unable to update deployment share for Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010

Pulled this from the help docsFailure to Update WIM Files
In a ?simple? environment:
For Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008, MDT 2010 locates WIMGAPI.DLL in C:\Program Files\Windows Imaging, which should be in the system PATH. The WIMGAPI.DLL should not reside in C:\Windows\system32: It will be present in the C:\Program Files\Windows AIK directory tree, but MDT 2010 rarely uses it from that location.
For Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, MDT 2010 typically picks up WIMGAPI.DLL from C:\Windows\system32 (always in the path). The version of this WIMGAPI.DLL must match the version (build) of the operating system.
On a 64-bit operating system, MDT 2010 always uses the x64 WIMGAPI.DLL file; only that file should be in the system PATH. On a 32-bit operating system, MDT 2010 always uses the x86 WIMGAPI.DLL file; only that file should be in the system PATH. (Other products, such as System Center Configuration Manager, use the 32-bit version of WIMGAPI.DLL, even on a 64-bit operating system, but they manage and install that version.)
Problem: When attempting to update a deployment share, the user will be informed that the mounting of one or more .wim files did not succeed.
Possible Solution: Open a Command Prompt window and run where WIMGAPI.DLL. For the first entry in the list (the first location found by searching the path), ensure that the Version property matches the build of th... Read more

We have a very strange phenomenon happening that we have never seen. Here's the background. Our computers are deployed with MDT and WDS, we apply any windows updates, they're on the domain, and we log them into the account used on that computer.
When they're logged in for the first time, we have a script that runs that adds shortcuts, network drives, wlan profiles, favorites, etc. We have had numerous netbooks that have been configured, used for a while, had more updates, and programs installed,
and then one day, everything disappears. They come up with a bad trust relationship, and it's as if the user profile for the domain account was never logged in or configured. There's no updates, programs, settings, nothing, it's as if the computers are back
to the state they are in after you click finish after deploying with MDT. There's no record (that I can find) of any sort of system restore. The only thing that's there that wouldn't be right after deployment are the event logs, and maybe some folders in appdata
for programs that were added after deployment. Anybody ever see anything like this?

Upon arriving at work today, our MDT server no longer runs install TS' on pcs. After logging on to the server I discovered that the deployment share has been messed up somehow- trying to connect to it shows an error message reading:
"The deployment share 'sharename and path' cannot be opened because it was created with a later version of Microsoft Deployment Toolkit. The version of the deployment share is 6.0.2223.0 while the current version is 5.1.1642.1"

Now I know that I haven't done any updates on the share, and there is another share that is still working on the same server, so I am stumped as to why this has happened! We cannot deploy computers until this is resolved, and I can't see to find any information
on it from my research.

Anyone ever seen this?

Edit: I've realized that version 6.0.2223.0 is MDT 2012, which we don't use. First of all- how is this possible? Second, can I upgrade to 2012 and preserve my existing deployment shares?

A:MDT Deployment Share version error

Upgrading the entire console to MDT 2012 and adding the (accidentally) upgraded deployment share seems to have got it back up and running- the OSD TS is currently testing this. I had to also upgrade the second deployment share in order to use it on MDT 2012,
but that went through without a hitch.

Still dumbfounded as to why this happened, or how a DS could be upgraded without the console itself actually upgrading. Luckily, the audit log also showed who did it :)

I have MDT 2010 setup and am in the process of setting up a 2nd share, I created the share with no issues, and created the "link" without issues as weel. I am now trying to get the linked share to replicate, and am getting an error that the "everything" profile is not valid, when it does exist on the new share. I even tried creating a new profile and setting it to that one, still get the exact same error. Has anyone else seen this?

A:MDT 2010 linked deployment share issue

Figured it out, if this ever happens to you, delete and re-create the 2nd share (the one you want to replicate too) then re-create the link and update. Something must have gotten corrupted.

Hi All,
We've had a reference build for Windows 7 to capture up and running for years, no problems. We've not changed anything I can think of in this build for a good while. We generate a new baseline image every few months, installing all the latest patches in
it so it's patched before being installed in production. For years all so far so good!
Since the last time we did it, we're now getting it failing to install the apps (all hosted on a share on the same server as the deployment share), it quickly became obvious that the issue is when we're trying to connect to the server that hosts the deployment
and app shares we're now being prompted for credentials which we didn't used to.
To make it more interesting we look after another infrastructure, and the Windows 7 reference build there is still fine...
Any ideas?

I downloaded PowerPivot for Office 2010 and installed it manually to one computer with no problems. Now I try to deploy this MSI package to few similar workstations with GP but this fails. I can see from logs that installation has started but failed. I suspect
that this has something to do with UAC on Windows7 clients.
I can start the MSI manually with command prompt from same network location that my GPO starts it but the UAC prompts me to accept changes rightaway. So is the a option to disable or say yes to user prompt automatically?? Thanks!

A:UAC and MSI deployment?

You can try to disable UAC on Windows 7:
1. Access User Control Panel from Start Menu -> Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Account
2. Click on

User Account Control settings link.

3. Move the Slider to Never Notify
4. Click OK to make the change effective
5. Reboot.

Hi Guys,

Use a program like nLite to create an installation package to which you can incorporate the Serial Number and any number of tweaks. This works pretty much the same way as a Sysprep install.

Hey all,

A couple years ago, I began a help desk job where no imaging was being used. Someone had been manually setting up as many as 20 machines a month. I quickly figured out some half-assed ways to image which I don't think will work in Windows 7 so I was coming to ask to be pointed in the right direction.

Current method:
-Setup a machine the way I want
-Take Image with Acronis off of a BartPE disc
-Run NewSID before joining to the domain
-Join to domain and setup user account

I read that NewSID was nothing more than a tool for breaking things Vista and later. Is sysprep where I need to be headed or is that for people not using an imaging tool?

I'm always looking for help and great forums - I hope to find both here!

Hi everyone,
i know the internet is full of guides and tutorials but i haven't got what i'm looking for.
My situation is as follows:
Our corporation buys oem licensed windows 7 computers from our suppliers.
we would like to create an image with icd , without overwriting the product keys (since we don't buy volume keys, paying 2 times seems a little stupid aswell). We would like the icd image to join the domain under a variable name (something like desktop01
- desktop02 etc ...).Also it should be able to enable the built in local administrator and disable any other local user besides domain users.

within this icd image i would like to add other applications aswell (symantec antivirus, citrix, adobe reader, office365, etc...).
Is this possible ? if so could anyone guide me to a fairly easy guide where i can do all this stuff?

Finalizing XP deployment

I am looking to simplifying the deployment of my company?s standard build. Iv tested a few different methods and found one that is close to working perfectly.

So far I have been able to build a WinPE CD, boot into it then apply an image that I have stored on another local drive. This works with the only problem being two different media.
Iv been trying to add the standard image to the WinPE CD but that makes the CD over 2GB - so needing a DVD.
Iv added the file during the WinPE CD build but the software cant handle a CD being over 700MB.
Iv used ImgBurn to add the image to the ISO of WinPE. This will burn, eventually, but when booting I get 'CDBOOT: Cannot boot from CD : Code 5'
When I try burn the complete ISO under Nero it runs to part way through then stays at that percentage forever (Different values each time, left over the weekend and still no change or error)
Iv played about with a couple different boot files - Neros standard ones, microsoft_corparation.img, ImgBurn standards and the original boot file from the WinPE CD. None have been able to complete the boot - different problems each time - each message just telling me that it cant boot, not much of a reason.

Can anyone help with their experience or give advice for a better deployment method?

Any thoughts on the best and/or simplest way to deploy applications to workstations which are not members of our Domain? What apps are available that will allow me to, for example, create an installation package for an appilication complete with all the configuration options I'd like and then place that package somewhere on a server or even burn it on a CD so that launching the package would be the only task required to install/configure the app. Also, what's available that would allow me to remotely place the install package (or any file for that matter) on the desktop (or start menu)of a large number of non-domain workstations based on the IP address of the workstation.

We're doing a quick POC for ATA. The first stage - where a couple of DCs had the ATA Lightweight Gateway deployed - was promising, and we'd like to extend the scope to further DCs. However, since some of our DCs are running Windows Server 2008 R2, this presents
a problem since .NET Framework 4.6.X requires a reboot. To add to the problem the ATA client itself requires another reboot. We also want to avoid doing a manual install on each DC - which would mean automatic deployment, maybe as simple as a GPO (with the
.exe first packaged as a .msi - an older thread about it
here) or invoking psexec with an include file to specify the list of remote machines. Looking at the silent installation instructions the
setup can pause automatically and not initiate the reboot of the machine - allowing a degree of control and preventing critical systems going down at an inappropriate time.
In the referenced article above it's stated that "When using the -NoRestart flag and restart will be required as part of the installation, the installer will pause until the server is restarted", which hints that there's no way for avoiding the
2-restarts issue. But just to be sure - has anyone found a workaround for deploying this in one go ? Eg deploy .NET Framework followed immediately by the ATA client.
Also - I was just thinking above of some ways to deploy the client automatically, but probably they might not be the best pick or someone went already through this proces... Read more

Hi All,

Here is our situation.

We have a little over 100 users all of whom have a corporate signature. However these signatures are images so each individual user has a different image containing their name and contact details.

I'm having a problem after the deployment of a Windows 7 client (LTI). I captured a custom image, but after I deploy it to a client pc, i get an MMC error when I try to open Computer management (MMC console detected an error in the snap-in and it will be

I have tried to build and cpture a fresh image several times, always the same thing. Another thing is, with the last image, I left it stand for some time before I captured it and so the grace period expired, i didn't do any rearm. I thought that sysprep resets
the grace period, but this isn't the case, I get a black desktop after deployment. Is there a way to work around this?

All of the above is installed before the capture.

Before the capture everything works fine.

Hi, I hope someone can help me. We use MDT to deploy Windows 7 to desktops and laptops. This was working great until recently. The deployment deploys the image but it fails to logon to the computer once the deployment is done so that it can do the Post Install
steps in the Task sequence.
I have Auto Logon enabled in 7 oobe System section of the unattend.xml but when it gets to this part it says username/password incorrect. If I manually enter the password set in this step it logs on and carries on with the rest of the task sequence. I have
tried creating a totally new task sequence and unattend.xml but i still get the same issue. I have tried changing the account it users from the defualt built in admin account to a domain account but still get the message username/password are incorrect. Is
anyone able to help?

Hi All, new to the forum,

Has anyone had any joy using the DISM image deployment tool,

below is the message i get trying to capture an image

DISM doesn't recognise the command-line option "d:\thinimage.wim"

I've tried the below.

I've checked this over and over and i'm defiantly following the line they require.... any ideas? Thanks.

I know nothing about DISM, so please check what I say first...

...but looking at the format of the command line, I wonder if there should be a colon after /imagefile?

so replace
dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile "d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile:"d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

Please help I am lost.

Firstly, I try to run an exe file which addresses an Access file on my computer and it works fine I transferred to another computer i get a 429 Activex error.

I then created an installation program with P&D Wizard and when I try to install it on my computer and the other one I get a MISMATCH ERROR --without a code number.

Maybe this means something the Access file is created with Access 97 but computer that it is about to be ran on it loaded with 2003.

Maybe another installer might work --I dont know. Is there any other installer that is easier to use? I mean just add my exe and access file and the installer automatically chooses all needed dll and ocx.
Pleas help me. Thanks

I have installed a Windows 7 Enterprise reference image. I have added a Windows 7 boot image on my WDS server and created a capture image, I have added the Ethernet and the storage driver to the boot image. When I PXE boot the refernce computer with the
capture image the WINPE is not loading, the green bar runs from side to side for a sec. and then black screen, I have tried to leave the computer for some hours but still black screen.
Any idears?

A:Windows 7 WDS deployment

I consider this issue can be caused if the driver you added into boot image fail to install.

Please try the suggestions in this article:
Error message when you start a PXE client to connect to a WDS server on a Windows Server 2003 SP1-based computer or on a Windows Server 2008-based computer: "WdsClient: An error occurred while starting networking"
Post back the setupapi.dev.log if you fail to get this issue resolved by above suggestions.

Keep post. Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help, and unmark the answers if they provide no help. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact [email protected]

I was wondering if there was a way of doing a Windows Xp installation over the Network without using a enterprise solution like Windows server 03/08.

I was thinking maybe there is 3rd party software that can emulate this feature of windows server?

"The 32-bit version of the OPK tools does not support WOW64. Please use the 64-bit version of the OPK tools instead"

When I try to find anything on the 64-bit OPK tools , it asks for a microsoft partnership account ... I also checked on my 64-bit Install CD's , no luck.

Please halp!

I have gone over many posts and have gotten to this point with imaging the M900 with windows 7 ENT.I first had an issue with PXE boot and found I needed the specific drivers for Win8.1 to inject in the boot image i'm using.  That worked great.  I then proceeded to image my M900...then things went downhill....I got to the Windows login screen but no keyboard or mouse would work.  I tried to inject the USB 3.0 controller into the boot image and that didn't work.  I did make a driver package from the SCCM package from Lenovo and that gets installed after windows as a task sequence, but still no USB so i cannot do anything with it once it's done.Has anyone successfully used configmgr 2012 SP1 and imaged the Lenovo M900?I bet it's something small i'm missing but i'm sort of running out of time. I would be very thankful for some assistance.
