    Capturing and Deploying Windows 8: Issues


    So I am having many issues with windows 8. First of all, when I sysprep it does not do what I want it to do (like windows 7) so I am not syspreping. Now, when I capture my image using WinPE v.3.0m it skips MANY files and when I apply the wim file to another computer, my image does not work. It tells me that many files are missing and that I need to repair windows. When I try to repair windows, nothing gets repaired and I get stuck there and I can not advanced.

    I read about the new version of WinPE 4.0 with NET and PowerShell. I followed the instruction from DeploymentResearch website and still unsuccessful. Anybody have any ideas? Solutions? Tips? I am really stuck.

    Thanks,


    -I

    What do you mean when you say sysprep doesn't do what you want it to do? What do you want it to do?

    It doesn't keep my original setting, my background colors, deletes my admin account, etc.
