Unable to Capture Image in WDS

June 30, 2009 at 09:59:34
Specs: Windows Server 2008 x64 Enterprise
VMWare - 64-bit guest operating system with 32-bit Windows XP installed and sysprepped with the -reseal -activated -mini options.

On my WDS, I have a capture image file based off of Windows 2008, x64. On the guest OS PXE boot, WDS automatically detects x64 architecture and gives me the x64 menu options which includes the x64 capture image

When it comes to the area to pick which volume to capture, the list is blank. Shift+F10 does not show my C drive. So I am wondering if I sysprepped it incorrectly or if I just don't have the storage drivers for it? I have tried various sysprep.inf files including the buildmassstorage=yes option.

To quote an article from windows IT pro magazine, the author states "If the c: volume does NOT apper, then sysprep wasnt performed correctly. This is a common mistake.It's easy to forget to put a check mark in syspreps Generalize box." I hope this helps...

Hmm I don't recall there ever being a "generalize" check box. I wonder if that is a Vista only deployment feature.
