Windows 7: Windows 7 Image... No Boot MGR?

Windows 7 Image... No Boot MGR?

All,

This is my first post here, so hopefully I'm not missing anything but I'm having a few issues with images for Windows 7. I've been working with Vista images for the past few years without any problems but following the same procedure with Windows 7 doesn't seem to work for me.

To begin with I install the machine like normal, add in all of the software and then disable the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service and sysprep the machine. After I boot using Win PE and capture an image once I try applying it the image fails, saying the the bootmgr is missing.

I can fix this by booting to a windows 7 dvd and run two repairs but would prefer if this didn't happen at all...

Is anyone else running into this issue?

Let me know if I'm missing any helpful information!

Thanks!

Could it be something with the boot partition that Windows 7 setup normally makes?

Yes, I hit this more than often, its probably my heaviest hitter. Usually occurs with data loss, resulting in an unexpected reboot during a critical phase of installation. It's being worked on, and will probably present itself in upcoming releases.

Hope this helps,
