Uniplat

Hi

I got different laptops that we needs to boot off same image file, ran through the uniplat prodecure -

*diskpart - made 4 partitions on hdd, laptop1,laptop2, z00d, uniplat
*hide partition laptop2, z00d
*installed win7x86sp1 on laptop1 (no 100mb boot part)
*tuned, installed wsm client, utilities
*ran uniplat, made .wup file to a usb disk
*hide laptop1, unhide+active laptop2
*install win7x86sp1, wsmclient+util
*uniplat restore from laptop1.wup from usb disk to uniplat partition
*made uniplat partition active, and tried to boot it, BCD error, cant boot

and that's there I'm stuck. any tips?

thanks on advantage!

RE: Uniplat

I read mhaase wrote that uniplat backup takes 1 round and ask about reboot after first round, but I don't get the quesition, just "close", and that's it. No reboot asked. Even that I checked for that the image is bootable, in wup properties.

RE: Uniplat

when I look at the properties at the backed up .wup file only folliwing properties have values:

OSM Version - 4
Image HAL - Unknown
Number of files - 77728
Number of directories - 12472
Creation date - 06/13/2013 21:14:14
Backup directory - c:
Delete all files - disabled


No value set for image characteristics , image os version , and no request for reboot after first round of backup, makes me think there must be something wrong ... what could it be?

RE: Uniplat

just got an idea, could it be that the first partition don't have BCD file but using MBR directly, and I somehow need to get BCD file generated in the first partition?

RE: Uniplat

I generated new BCD file with either bcdboot, bcdedit and win7 setup cd in recovery mode, and got a step further - now it says windows registery are corrupted ...

Are there something wrong with backuping with uniplat? Or maybe are the problem that the windows installation are not English? I hope someone can come with a clue... I'm pretty stuck here...

RE: Uniplat

Hello eiris,

make sure you have followed the instructions in document #9 in ftp://support-emea.wyse.com/public/WSM/WSM5-HowTo.zip
This archive includes step-by-step for the most common configuration task in WSM , and Uniplat is one of them.

Good luck!

RE: Uniplat

Yes, at the page 6 in the refered document it says I'm supposed to get the reboot popup window, which I don't get... Just "backup complete" , I click close, and comes back to uniplat window, nothing more. Now I'm installing English windows 7sp1 and see how it goes...

RE: Uniplat

Now, when I compare closely the document, I see, after the NIC prompt it should say "Backing up registry hives. Please wait...", here it goes straight to "Copying file. Please wait..." ...

Maybe it's caused by that it's domain member? I'm logged on as domain administrator here... Other possible reasons? (Now I tested at english version, same result)

RE: Uniplat

My next step would be to install windows7 without SP1 and see how it goes ... I'll post how it goes

RE: Uniplat

Don't think the Service Pack is the culprit.
Using the local Admin and/or not a domain joined machine sounds reasonable.
Have a look at the Uniplat logfile (C:\Program Files\Wyse\WSM\WSM Client Utilities\Uniplat.txt) to understand where exactly the backup process fails.
