Sysprep an un-sysprep WIM file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a .wim image that was not syspreped. I have the same brand machine(but not the original computer) to sysprep again.
    Now I want to make a general wim file that can be deployed to computer with new hardware.
    Can I deploy the wim to the same brand machine and sysprep to caputre a genreal wim file?

  • You should be able to do this. Once you deploy the wim file, test the image out and make sure there are no issue. Then you can sysprep and deploy.

    When you say deploy to new hardware is this hardware something completely different that will require new device drivers?

  • Yes.

    The new hardware is x99 chipeset while the available image is made from x79 one.

    I never do sysprep before and it works for different hardware platform.But recently i found the usb3.0 drv couldn't be successfully installed for x99 motherboard.

  • it reports a fatal error occurs.

    It's win7 emb os. I couldn't remember whether I have uninstalled iis feature. Now when opening "turn on off windows feature",there is nothing.

    How to resolve the problem? How can i reinstall iis?

    I wouldn't like to reinstall by dvd because we've make lots of custom operations to the os.

  • Do you have the original computer to deploy too?

  • I make a clean install of that and the problem remains the same.

    I notice somebody has the similar problem after bing.

    There's also a c:\windows\system32\intersrv folder in system.

    But nothing appears in  "turn on off windows feature" dialog.

    I also found that my wim file contains the following feature pack:

    Package Identity : WinEmb-IIS-WAS~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.1.7601.17514
    State : Installed
    Release Type : Feature Pack
    Install Time : 2013/3/13 17:30

    Package Identity : WinEmb-IIS~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.1.7601.17514
    State : Installed
    Release Type : Feature Pack
    Install Time : 2013/3/13 17:30 

    I'm trying to disable iis in through feature pack. Any advice?

  • Try using DISM to remove the feature pack.

    Since these new machines are different, why not just re-create the image in ICE?

  • Hi,

    What is ICE?

    Wednesday, December 31, 2014 1:14 AM
  • ICE - Image Configuration Editor - it is used to create an answer file and custom installer image for WES7: http://www.annabooks.com/Articles/Articles_WES7/Intro_WES7%20V1.7.pdf

  • Thank you.

    I don't have this product installed. Instead I used wsim from 

    http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=KGK6P

    It seems that the two are similar.

    However, when I used wsim to load distribution share. Template folder not show up. My wes7e dvd is made by another colleague.

    So maybe  should I update to ICE?

  •  SIM is for regular Windows desktop and server - yet another book covers this -http://www.annabooks.com/Book_SGSIM.html . ICE is a custom version of SIM designed for use with WES7.

    You need the WES7 toolkit DVD to create the custom installer for WES7.

  • I investigate the problem step by step and finally found that If I don't disable IIS Admin Service after a clean re-install everything is OK.

    Then if I disable it, I can never sysprep and report errors above. Furthermore, the service can be set to Manual start but when I try to start it another error box prompt error code -2146893818:

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/getfile/585390

    Even restart makes no changes.

    I'm not sure whether it is a bug of MS.
