Windows 7: (WDS) Windows Can not install required files

18 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 32 Bit
(WDS) Windows Can not install required files


I have been using Windows Deployment services for sometime now so the environment is not new to me. For some reason every new WIM that I build now, when I try to apply it using WDS I get this error.

My Capture Process
  • Install A Clean Version of Windows
  • Configure system how I want it
  • sysprep into audit mode to remove user account that I built during setup
  • sysprep OOBE and shutdown
  • Run Imagex.exe /capture c: c:\imagename.wim "My Image Name" /compress fast /verify

I get the capture with no errors and upload to my WDS.

This error used to never be a problem but I am getting it all the time now.

Any idea how to fix?
