    windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware. Win7 HII

    Rookie

      Hi guys

       

      I'm having a issue whereby I receive the following message when Win7 is setting itself up

       

      "windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware"

       

      The win 7 Base is captured from a VM I had to make it hardware independant and then have the drivers deployed via HIIClient, this all works fine however I receive the above error.

       

      I have attempted changing BIOS seetings from AHCI to ATA, but as its windows 7 it should support SATA, but still no luck with changing to ATA, instead machine loops in a continuous reboot.

       

      Machine is DELL optiplex 7010.

       

      Any ideas please?

       

      I am also creating a windows XP VM to capture the image from for HII is there anything I should be aware of when capturing/deploying the image?

       

      Using VM workstation.
