Windows 7: Multiboot BCD Issue - Win7 Deployment using WinPE

16 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 32-Bit
Multiboot BCD Issue - Win7 Deployment using WinPE

My Setup:
  • Used EasyBoot to create a menu to support loading either 32-Bit of 64-Bit WinPE iso.
My Process:
  • Boot into WinPE 32-Bit
  • Use Diskpart to format and prepare the drive
    • select disk 0
    • clean
    • create partition primary
    • select partition 1
    • active
    • format quick fs=ntfs label="Windows"
    • assign letter=C
    • exit
  • Use ImageX to apply the .WIM
  • Then use "C:\Windows\System32\bcdboot C:\Windows" to create the boot file.
My Problem:

All of the above process seems to work fine, except for when I load the image on to a different PC and reboot. When the computer reboots, Windows Boot Manager shows up and asks me to choose an OS. Both choices are Windows 7, and both choices work.

I know I can boot into Windows and run BCDEDIT in CMD and fix the issue. Or I could use EasyBCD and fix the issue. BUT I would like to fix this issue in the WinPE imaging process before the computer reboots. I would also like for this process to be automated and not have to specify the identifier I would like to delete.

I am trying to make this a seamless process where my helpdesk has to do very little leg work. PLEASE HELP!!!!
