Dear all,

                I would like to deploy a generalized vhd of windows 7, 8, 10 on bare machine C: partition. (Mostly windows 7). 

 

What I have tried is,

 

Boot a win PE and create a partition on bare machine C:

Then deploy the generalized VHD on the partition C: using DISM

 

Here I struck.

 

How to create a new bcd store, boot files and other things to make it bootable.

 

Plz list out all the commands of bcd to make it work....

 

Below are the commands found but its for copying a generalized vhd and  booting it.

 

What i am trying is deploying from vhd to partion and booting it.

 

Can anyone modify it to my need?

 

 

cd v:windowssystem32

bootsect
/nt60 c: /force /mbr

bcdboot v
:windows /s c:

bcdedit /store c:bootbcd /copy {default} /d "Windows7 VHD boot (locate)"

 

bcdedit /store c:bootbcd /set {new_guid} device vhd=[locate]windows7.vhd

bcdedit /store c:bootbcd /set {new_guid} osdevice vhd=[locate]windows7.vhd

bcdedit
/store c:bootbcd /default {new_guid}

bcdedit /store c:bootbcd /set {new_guid} detecthal on

I am not following you.

What do you mean by (or how exactly) are you deploying  a.vhd with DISM?

 

The result of deploying (or DISM /Apply) is a deployed or "flat" OS. :dubbio: but DISM is used with .wims ...

Sir,

         Really very sorry for wrong description. It was a Wim image not a VHD.

 

I am a service person who install frequent OS in customer PC. It takes really a long time and being idle till all software Installation completes.

 

So i thought of capturing a generalized wim image with all software pre installed, so that I can save time.

 

But don't know how to do it...

I still don't get it, if it's a "normal" .wim applied, then what is the sense of the "customized" BCD with the "locate" action to a .vhd?

 

See if reading this:

AND this (tool to automate the install):

http://www.msfn.org/...inntsetup-v386/

helps you.
