I have created a .WIM file of a HP Laptop with all drivers, software etc installed using WAIK, I have created a new VM using Oracle VM Box and deployed the image onto this Virtual Machine, this all appears to be working fine.
My problem occurs when I try and install the image to an Old Dell laptop I have knocking around, the Dell did have XP on it but I installed Windows 7 on it, then I restart, boot into windows PE and install the .WIM file onto the laptop.
All seems well, it finishes the install and I reboot, I then get the following error:
File:\Windows\System32\winload.exe Status:0xc00000e Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt
I can't see anything too detailed about why this error is generated but I can't get it too boot, I have tried using the recovery console and it won't recover, I tried the steps suggested in this link to recover the MBR as I thought that may have been the problem but still no luck
If I do a full install of the OS again from the recovery disk itself it works.
Has it got anything to do with the fact it's a HP image going onto a DELL machine? I'm at a bit of a lost, any help would be great.
