Re: Optiplex 760 AHCI Imaging Problem

When you run sysprep.exe it is supposed to populate the following registry key with storage controller device ID information:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase\

If everything works, a computer that's been installed from an image should have entries for all the storage controllers referenced in sysprep.inf. I checked my imaged computer and it's missing an entry - guess which one??

I've Googled up the missing information and created a registry merge file that you can apply to your image before running sysprep.exe. This is tested working as of this morning with the Intel 8.7.0.1007 driver, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work with the newer one too.

Here's the missing key (copy and paste into a text file and save with a .reg extension):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase\pci#ven_8086&dev_3A02&CC_0106]
"ClassGUID"="{4D36E96A-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}"
"Service"="iaStor"

Dave - I suspect that somehow this information has made it into your image's registry. Do you create images on an actual 760 or in a VM?
