I'm trying to deploy a Windows Embedded 7 Standard (WE7S) image, which was created with the Image Creation Editor (ICE). I achieved a working hands-free installation from a USB-Flash-Drive of this image (based on this article).
Now I would like to deploy the created image using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, but the installation always stucks at the same screen: Language and other preferences. The field "Language to install:" contains no data and because of this i can't proceed the installation (See attached screenshot).
I tried three different ways of adding the image:
- Import the OS with the option "Full set of source files", pointing at the folder, containing the installation files created by ICE
- Importing the OS with "Custom image file", pointing at the created *.wim file, adding additional Setup files via the "Copy Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, or later setup files from the specific path." pointing at the from ICE created folder.
- Adding the Language Packs via "Packages > Import OS Packages", pointing at the ICE Distribution Share. 6 Language Packs have been imported (en-US, de-DE, es-ES, ...)
(I also tried the same with the new MDT 2012 - but I'm getting the same error...) How can I solve this problem? Please post, if you need any further information!
Thanks in advance, Birgit
Update: It seems, the created Windows Embedded 7 Standard Image has the language packages not integrated in a form, MDT can handle. The "Properties"-Form of the OS shows a blank field for "Language(s)"... (See second screenshot)
