Windows 7: WDS Image not working on Dell Inspiron 14z

WDS Image not working on Dell Inspiron 14z

I am trying to create a Windows 7 pro image to deploy but I am having difficulty when I deploy the image because of the built in SSD hybrid drive that comes with the laptop. When i deploy it will just loop and will not complete the setup when I push the image down to the new laptop. Any suggestions on what I need to do first?

Try unRAIDing the caching SSD so that it goes inert until it gets it's driver and later can be re-enabled. You may need to read your Manual on the PC's Support Downloads webpage to find out exactly how. Some have a RAID controller pop-up at boot, others are adjusted in BIOS setup under SATA controller settings - change from RAID to AHCI to try install.

If this is the 32gb SSD caching chip it is cut loose and even available for OS install by unRAIDing and turning off Hardware Acceleration in the Intel control panel. Read the Manual for more specific instructions.
