I just ran into a really strange problem with my new Surface Pro 3. Everytime I install the [september driver pack from Microsoft the device won't boot anymore (screenshot).
The windows 8.1 is a vhd native boot image which I use on several diffrent systems.
Here is what I did to run my vhd on my Surface Pro 3.
- I booted up a USB stick with Windows PE on it
- Run diskpart
- sel disk 0
- convert gpt
- create par efi size=100
- format quick fs=fat32 label=System
- create par primary
- format quick fs=ntfs label=Store
- list vol
- sel vol "number where the System par is"
- assign letter=S
- sel vol "number where the Store par is"
- assign letter=C
- exit diskpart
- attach the usb drive with the vhd image on it
- copy the vhd image to drive C:
- open diskpart again
- sel vdisk file="C:\loadit-sys1.vhd"
- attach vdisk
- lis vol
- sel vol "number where the vhd par is mounted"
- assign letter=V
- exit diskpart
- cd V:\Windows\System32\
- bcdboot V:\Windows /s S: /f ALL
Then the Surface Pro 3 boots totally normal into my VHD and everything works properly. But most of the device is not working since there are no drivers installed. So I attach a USB stick with the september driver pack from Microsoft. Start installing BT / WiFi / Intel Audio / Intel Video (where it asks me to reboot). I reboot and I get the attached bluescreen... And I can not boot the vhd anymore... I tried reformating the efi... recreating the bcdboot etc. etc. my VHD wont boot anymore. Here is a picture of my bcdedit after the driver install (thats when the device no longer boots).
Any ideas or tricks are welcome.
Thanks a lot
