Issue/Introduction

Problem

  • An osimage was created from a custom wim. 
  • The ImageX process completed successfully 
  • On reboot the PC displays "Bootmgr is missing" and does not load windows

Environment:  

  • ImageX OSIM deployments

Cause:

  1. The template PC that was captured was configured with a small system partition.
  2. When the Wim was captured it only contained the OS partition which does not contain the boot environment files

Resolution

Use the bcdboot command to initialize the drive with the boot environment files

  1. Browse to the camenu folder
    .................\CA\DSM\Server\SDBS\var\managedpc\camenu 
  2. Edit the imagename.cmd for the OSImage in question 
  3. add the following after the imageX command to extract the wim
     
    • bcdboot c:\windows
