The problem is caused by diskpart not writing to the disk correctly when laying down the Dell Utility Partition.
There are many solutions for this problem.
1) Use the Linux pre-boot environment for 32 bit Windows installations. This error does not show up if the Linux environment is used.
Remove the task in the OS installation job that installs the Utiility Partition.
Download and unzip the images found in the UP.zip attachment attached to this article, and place them in the following directory: "...\Deployment Server\Images\".
Now we need to modify the OS install scripts to use these images :
Open up create_util_winpe.bat (found at ...\Deployment Server\Dell\ascripts\WinPE) in a text editor and comment out (:: before the line) everything between
:: Create Utility Partition
In their place (but before :mount_lbl) place the following line of code :
%share%\RDeploy\Windows\rdeploy.exe -md -f %share%\Images\UP.img -sz1:64M -rescan
Now we will modify the create_windows_part_winpe.bat (also at ...\Deployment Server\Dell\ascripts\WinPE)
Again comment out each line between
:: Create OS Partition
and in their place (again before ":mount_lbl") place the following line :
%share%\RDeploy\Windows\rdeploy.exe -md -f %share%\Images\WBASE.img -sz2:4000M -rescan
The job should now run on this system, and any others, without problems.
