I just tried using DISM to image a laptop with a .wim file. Usually I use ImageX for this, for some reason I cannot get into the command prompt with the Windows 7 boot USB stick.. Possibly USB3 related.
Used this command and it seemed to work fine: dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:d:\my-windows-partition.wim /index:1 /ApplyDir:C:
Unfortunately, instead of booting to the "Preparing Windows 7 for first use" screen, the laptop won't boot from HD with the error message: "Insert system disk in drive". I go into command prompt and I can see all the files were successfully copied across. Any ideas whats going wrong?
Big thanks to JohnC_21 for all the help, slowly making progress. I think my last thread was deleted.. apologies if I'm breaking forum rules, admins please let me know if this is the case.
