Installation :: Driver Letter Change Post Sysprep?

Aug 5, 2015

Preparing upgrade to 10
Did clean install Window 7 to customize, sysprep, image, install on several duplicate PCs prior to upgrade
1st drive is SSD, 2nd is HDD
SSD partition c: os and d: virtual box
HDD e: data

wrote answer file move user and program data from c: to e:

Something happened post sysprep and partition letters switched d and e, I changed the drive letters in windows and now can't get into profile There is a shortcut to e on the d partition of SSD Tried reassigning letters using diskpart but they don't remain when entering windows but go back to the wrong assignment.

I googled this and apparently it happens but I don't know why. I can only think that I was lucky to image the clean OS however if I can fix this it would save me time. If not, I will get rid of the d: partition and put that post sysprep

Here is the answer file

< ?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
< unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
<settings pass="oobeSystem">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS"


I can't seem to fix this problem

Installation :: Driver Auto Load Fail With Sysprep?

Jan 21, 2016

I am working on creating a new master image to deploy windows 10 64 to a new of different models throughout our organization. Currently I am having difficulties getting the drivers to be "auto Detected"

The Sysprep command I am using is : sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:C:windowssystem32sysprep10answer.xml

When the PC boots after being sysprep it does not detect and install the drivers.

I have loaded the uncompressed drivers to C:windowsINF and created a folder called drivers. I set the permissions for pretty much anyone to have full control. If I manually point the driver install wizard to that folder they all install correctly. This previously worked in 7 32 bit without any thought.

I tried adding the driver path to Pass 2 and 5 in my answer file without any change.

Installation :: Sysprep Disconnects NIC

Sep 24, 2015

We have upgraded our MDT 2013 to Update 1 build 8298.And we have quite a few issues that we didn't have before.We have some pretty simple task sequences we use to build images, one for each OS. CurrentlyWindows 7x64, Windows 8.1x64 and Windows 10x64. Each os has a separate virtual machine in our VMware environment. We don't capture the image in MDT since our deployment system requires and older WinPE to run ( pick the Syspreb task so it does what needs to be done at the end of the build. Shutdown the machine when it's done, pxe boot into capa and then proceed to capture the image.

After the upgrade I boot from the litetouch ISO like we normally do and using a VMxnet3 driver make the connection to the share and this runs smoothly all the way to the sysprep part. When the machine is done syspreping it completely "drops all network connections" and the build "fails".

Tried with different drivers, old and new. Even tried running it on hyper-v but it yields the same results. Every task sequence was built from scratch since the format part was changed.

Installation :: Error After Booting VM After Sysprep

Sep 22, 2015

So we're trying to get our first Win10 VM up and running. I downloaded the latest ISo from the Volume License site and installed it on a VM just fine. I ran all Windows Updates as well.

After that I ran Sysprep and choose OOBE, Generalize, and Shutdown. I then copied the VHDX file to a new location for a new VM as we normally do.

That all seemed to work fine until I then attached that hard drive file to a new VM and fired it up. After clicking the through the timezone page I get an error stating:

Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation.

I found some info online about changing the minimum password setting to 0 but that did not work. I then fired up my Template machine to see if that would setup fine and that now gets the same error so I'm kind of stuck.

I don't want to have to do manual steps on every VM we create

In not at my toshiba laptop at the moment so the wording may be a little off. Upgrading from my 8.1 current os. I just read about removing my eset antivirus before upgrading so I will remove that and my malwarebytes program as well and try again.

Installation :: Unstable Desktop Post Upgrade

Aug 17, 2015

Having upgraded to Windows 10 I am now unable to use my computer at all as when attempts to upload the desktop it continually fails to do so, the main desktop image is loaded but as it attempts to then add the icons it goes blank for a moment and then attempts the same procedure again. This occurs about every 2 to 3 seconds. On some occasions it displays the icons momentarily but often not at all. The mouse can be moved around the screen but I am unable to do anything further with it as the blue 'wait' circle is continually displayed.The odd thing howvever is that I left themChine running overnight in the hope that it would stabilise but when I returned to it Norton was requesting an upgrade whilst the problem persisted. This box was totally functional and i was able to proceed with it, which enabled the PC to then receive updates and reboot, with the same problem however. I am now forced to switch the machine off via the power button as I cannot shut down normally.

Installation :: Replace Key To Sysprep And Move Bootcamp To New MacBook Pro?

Apr 14, 2016

I upgraded my Bootcamp version of Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 10 on my MacBook Air. The screen is cracked on my MacBook Air so I am trying to move Bootcamp to a new MacBook Pro. When I run Sysprep I am getting an error message that says Sysprep cannot run on an upgraded version of Windows.

My question is: If I purchase new Windows 10 Pro operating system, can I replace the upgraded Windows 10 product key with the new key and will it change the upgrade to a new installation of Windows 10. If it will do this, I can then run Sysprep and move Bootcamp to my new MacBook Pro.

Installation :: Fixed Drive Letter Designations After Dual Boot Install?

Jun 17, 2015

I've installed W10 in my laptop in a dual boot configuration with W7 successfully. I used this tutorial Windows 10 - Dual Boot with Windows 7 or Windows 8 I'm setting up to do the same thing in my desktop and have a couple questions about drive letter designation after doing it. I created a 30G partition on the C drive of my desktop for the W10 install.

My laptop has one drive, the OS "C" drive, I created a another partition for W10, after installing W10 using the USB ISO "boot from USB" instruction when I'm in W10 it shows as the C drive, and the W7 partition is inactive D drive. Just the opposite when I'm in W7, it shows as the active C partition and W10 is the inactive D partition.

On my desktop I have the 120G C drive for W7, a 500G D drive for backups, a fixed CD-ROM E drive, and a virtual CD-ROM F drive. I've made a 30G partition on the C drive to install W10 on for the dual boot. The question is when the auto backup runs (I have it backup & image every Sunday at 7:00pm) it backs up the C drive to the D drive. Will the W10 dual boot install change my backup drive letter to something other than D, or will the non OS physical drives keep the same drive letter? I will have to remember to be in W7 for it to be the C drive when it backs up, but my concern was if the dual boot was going to change my backup drive to something other than D. That would affect the backup.

I've attached disk mgmt. below, FYI the G drive is the USB with the W10 ISO

Installation :: Wrong Drive Letter In Msconfig / Boot In Dual Boot System

Jan 27, 2016

In my desktop I have two hard disks ( disk 0 and disk 1 ) . Disk 1 is a clone of disk 0 created by Macrium Reflect
Disk 0 : ( C: ) windows 10 pro , upgrade from windows 7 , ( E: ) windows 8.1 pro , ( G: ) Storage partition
Disk 1 : clone of disk 0

problem description : I see in msconfig / boot a wrong listing

windows 10 ( C:WINDOWS) : Current OS ; Default OS

windows 8.1 pro ( H:WINDOWS ) instead of ( E:WINDOWS )

Nevertheless the dual booting works fine as well as the shift between the disks via BIOS.

The question is , could I fix the situation using the EasyBCD of Neosmart Technologies to edit the bootloader ?

I see can change drive letter H: to E: and save the change , am I right or wrong ? or any other way ....

Computer Will Not Now Post After Clean Install

Aug 28, 2015

I clean installed Windows 10 about 2-3 weeks before the problem. During the clean install, the computer crashed once, but was otherwise rock stable.

The first time I had the current problem I got an error saying something like Boot Failed and the Bios was reset to its default values. The computer restarted and was rock stable. I immediately did a memory test using Windows 10s memory tester and all was good. I also rebooted with no problems, but when I shut the computer down all I got was a blank screen.

I removed all the devices from the motherboard and tried using each of the two memory modules in each of the four memory slots, and it posted just once, but I was unable to replicate this when I shut the computer down and tried to restart the computer.

I tried several times to remove the battery to reset the the Bios to no avail.

I sent the motherboard to Gigabyte, but they said the motherboard works just fine!!!

What should my next step be? I highly doubt that it's the CPU, and that seems to suggest the power supply.

I am using the onboard DVI to my monitor. No gaming and no overclocking. I have a i5 Intel Haswell.

DVI Ports Not Working After Post When Upgrade

Aug 18, 2015

Since the upgrade to Windows 10, my main monitor, a DVI-Dual Link monitor, has stopped working after posting. I Have 2 other monitors, one DisplayPort, one HDMI, both working. I can use my dvi monitor, if it is the only monitor plugged in, to use the BIOS, but after Windows Loads, the display goes black, and "No Signal" is displayed. Also, It is not the monitor because I could use the HDMI with the monitor for it to work, but to get the 144hz I need to use dvi-D

I have tried:
-Uninstalling all Video Drivers
-Uninstalling CCC
-Reinstalling CCC
-Refreshing Windows

Sony Vaio AIO Can't POST But HDD Is Active

Sep 30, 2015

Sony VAIO AIO model SVL241290X, Core i7, 2Tb HDD 64 bit, started doing a startup/shutdown constantly (not exactly a loop) never getting to POST or Welcome screen for Windows 10. It started doing it when I hooked up an old HDD to move files from it to the VAIO which had been in a machine that did the same thing. Thought it was a bad motherboard on the old PC, but now I think it's a virus. Whenever I power the VAIO down by pressing/holding the power button, and starting it up again, it just resumes with HDD activity but never shows anything on the monitor.

Even the VAIO Assist button doesn't work. Also can't get to BIOS or Safe Mode. Sounds like a virus - maybe a rootkit MBR virus? Right now I can't do anything with this machine. Normal troubleshooting does not work. I don't have any restore discs or bootable recovery discs, although I am creating a copy of Windows 10 on USB drive with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool. But, without being able to designate the USB port to look at first in BIOS, that won't work either. Most important things are backed up, but I have a few things I would not like to lose.

Applications Crashing Post Upgrade - No Data Saved

Aug 19, 2015

After upgrade from W81 to W10, I have occasional Notepad, Thunderbird email, and PhotoPhilia crashes, no data saved. Occasionally the task does not crash but does disappear from the task bar (visible from Task Manager) though I can't get back into it.

I have not upgraded any of these products. I'd have assumed that Notepad, at least, would be current. I don't know how to find which build I am on.

Why Would HDD Have No Letter Associated

Aug 30, 2015

Just sort of curious, I noticed that in disk management that I had 4 drives listed


But then there was another drive simply listed as "GAMES".

I always thought it was just some screw up and a duplicate of the H drive (since they both are named as "GAMES") which has games on it but the odd part was that it didn't have a drive letter associated with it after the upgrade to 10.

It was a listed drive in Windows 7 so wondering why the drive letter was removed during the Windows 10 upgrade.

Drivers/Hardware :: HDMI Audio No Longer Function Post Upgrade

Sep 19, 2015

Just this past day I upgraded my Dell XPS 15 from Windows 7 to Windows 10, and I noticed I'm now having the same issue as many recently-upgraded users, specifically that when connected to a TV via HDMI, audio does not switch over to my TV's speakers, however, it stays with my computer's speakers, and video works perfectly fine.

In the audio devices panel, the Digital Audio (HDMI) speakers are displayed, but are listed as "not plugged in", as displayed below.

My drivers are all updated, cables tested on multiple devices, I'm running a NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M, driver version

I've seen this problem in other threads, tried multiple solutions, but to no avail, therefore would like a solution specific to my model/make.

I'm having issues with deploying out-of the box windows 10 on a Lenovo B50-80EW preinstalled win 7 pro and upgradable to win 8.1 Pro however since the new windows 10 update build 1511 ISO I download I thought it would go through OK . without have to do first upgrade install to windows 10

Secure BOOT on UEFI ON

From putting the windows 10 ISO in drive it doesn't prompt for activation key. As soon as network settings prompts I press shift/ Contro / F3

Now in administrator Mode I check windows is activated however I have the same model of laptop and I want to mass deploy an image but want to use the OEM key embedded in BIOS to each laptop of this model is this possible to be done as I deployed on another machine and got message saying this key is already in use is there an issue with the new ISO available from Microsoft .

I also tried fresh install with out no ethernet or wireless connected and still get on same machine windows is activated in audit mode on fresh setup.

One Letter Not Working On Keyboard?

Mar 30, 2016

I have one key working only when held down long enough (when it starts to spray that letter). Not an hardware problem.

Estonian keyboard layout. English keyboard layout works fine. Finnish keyboard layout has different key not working.

On-screen keyboard has same problem. 

Problem started just one day. Before was fine. I have tried some malware scans, registry fixes, safe mode, keyboard driver reinstall, other keyboard.

Where could this problem be located? Registry? Someone in internet thinks its malware. I dont think I installed something new previous to that problem.
