Re: Deploying Windows 10 1803 BCD error

If you are pushing the image to other PCs, you will need to have the Generalize option checked. Besides that, if you aren't removing any provisioned apps, I don't know why you would have an issue. Are you able to blow the image out on a PC (until where it has the spinning dots), pull the drive and grab the "C:\windows\system32\sysprep\panther\setuperr.log/Setupact.log Maybe that will give us a little insight.. if it is even populated with any data.

We have an extentive log of what has been tried and we've selected Generalized mode at one point with out success. I'm going to try installing Windows 10 (Bios = Legacy / partitions = MBR) , unplugged from network and select the generalized option at audit mode, shutdown, take image.

Yes, everytime we are able to image to the point of the spinning dots. I didn't think of yanking the drive for logs, will give that a shot, thanks.

With PC still unplugged from the network, make sure WindowsStore and Installer Services are stopped and disabled.


Be extremely careful with disabling services before running sysprep, I also got a headache why my syspreped Windows wouldn´t come up and it came out it was one of those "unneeded" services that where disabled before taking the sysprep.

The part with the unplugged network is imperative as if Windows catches an update server in audit mode there will be trouble later on if the image wants to come out of sysprep.

Note: The "Windows Installer Service" is a Critical System Service. "Windows Update Service" perhaps....
But generally agree I would not go with messing with too much during the initial Image Build....
Change those settings post deploy....but definitely don't mess with "Installer Service".....
