Third party imaging imagex error

Jump to solution

Hello,

I'm using third party WinPE imaging since about 2 Years with ZCM2017. Imaging works perfect until Win10 1809. I tried now Win10 1909. Tried to restore a sysprepped image.  Zenworktodo says 'imagex reported an error'. Any suggestions how to troubleshoot? Is there an imagex logfile? Where at drive x: is imagex located so I can try my own commands?

regards

E. Gruber

/srv/tftp/efi/microsoft/boot/winpe.wim  for 64-bit MS Imaging

Note: Don't forget you can create an "Imaging Bundle", which allows you to define WinPE imaging scripts to run.  No need to modify the WIM for certain actions.

See 13.13 about adding Powershell or other Addons to the WIM if your scripts will be advanced.

Imagex.exe is actually not on the WinPE system by default.

However, when you go through the process of trying to create or download an imagine with WorkToDo.exe, it will download imagex.exe to the SYSTEM32 folder.

It uses the TFTPClientApplication.exe to pull it down from the Imaging Server

Thank you for your answer.

After the error happened, imagex is downloaded in system32, thank you for this information. I then tried partitioning from the commandline with diskpart and after it imaging with imagex and it worked! So i will try to put my own batch files for imaging into the WinPE-Image that is booted from the Zen2017-Server. Can you tell me where I can find the winpe.wim-image that is downloaded for imaging?

Thanks for your help! I didn't know that it is also possible to use scripts with winpe-imaging bundles. I will try to use it.
