Internal Error 36000 When Imaging Unformatted Drives
Last Updated June 28, 2019
User PXE boots a client machine with an unformatted hard drive into Automation to deploy an image to it but immediately the job fails with the code: 'Internal Error 36000. An internal inconsistency has been detected.'
Windows Preinstallation Environment
"Internal Error 36000. An internal inconsistency has been detected."
Ghost64.exe is unable to deploy to hard drives without formatting and at least one partition.
PXE Boot into Automation using a Wait job
Use Diskpart to verify the drive is viewable and unformatted (if Diskpart does not see the drive, the mass storage driver is most likely missing from the Preboot environment).
Use Diskpart to format the drive (GPT if deploying a Windows 10 image) and create a partition.
Rerun the Distribute Disk Image Task
