I used WinSetupFromUSB 0.2.3 to transfer Windows 7 Setup to USB. On VMWare, it booted fine, but on real hardware every time Windows Boot Manager displayed this error message:

Windows Boot Manager



A recent hardware or software changes ...............



<Some general instructions>



File: \BOOT\BCD

Status: 0xc000000e

Info: An error occurred while attempting to read boot configuration data



ENTER=CONTINUE                             ESC=CANCEL



Both ENTER & Esc reboots the machine. Initially I thought that the BOOT folder on the USB is somehow damaged. I deleted & copied it from the DVD. But no luck.

Your BCD does not have valid boot entry.
The easiest way to make BCD is to use BCDBOOT command.

Assign a drive letter to partition inside w7.img. (I assume it is H: in this example) And run bcdboot command

bcdboot H:\Windows /s H:

I placed bcdedit in the BOOT folder & ran this command
bcdedit /store bcd

Here's the output

One more astonishing result - the above USB HDD worked fine on my laptop also (like it was in VMWare). The test I performed earlier was on my desktop. Another example of craziness of BIOSes. Can anybody come forward with some ideas this time? I'm here to try them out patiently.

Since you say your laptop boots right, could it be SATA driver? I had one such case which required different driver for ICH7 (desktop) and ICH8 (laptop) at the time of driver integration into XP setup. Anyhow for the solution part, i sniffed around MSFN and found a guy who made un-official ahci driver mix (he claimed it may show "unsigned" or something) but its always wise to integrate two official drivers. (i wanted to avoid possible conflict at that point)



i think it was under msfn\unattended or something...

ALSO you may get some hints here? : http://reboot.pro/9196/
