ICE bug or pilot error? RRS feed

  • Question

  • After much pain and stuffing.

    WEDU appears fully capable of making an irrevocable mess.

    Steps: (x64 example)

    1. Incautiously install latest updates (this includes re-released 2803821 and 2844286)
    2. watch your ICE explode on "adding applicable updates."
    3. cry.
    4. search for and remove: "amd64~package_for_kb2803821~~~~" and "...kb~~~~"
    5. use "importpackage.exe /rebuildindex <DS>"
    6. stare at the pile of errors.

    1 package(s) found
    ImportPackage: Error importing packages: HRESULT = 0x80004005
    Unspecified error : Failed to mount the image 1 from d:\WES7\DS64SP1-BROKEN-20130829\install.wim

    If you now open ICE and point it at this directory, you'll find your "product" has disappeared.

  • I found what caused this. Diskspace.

    importpackage will use INSANE amounts of C:\ space. Well over 10gb worth of thumb-twiddling.

    When I finally tried this with enough space, something else exploded, so I'm starting all over again from a re-install.

    Did I mention I hate WEDU...
