  • from the main imaging window can you open a command window and run diskpart. check the partition is there and is it large enough to hold the image.
  • I have checked the partition and disk and the partition is there with enough space. here is the log from the failed attempt

    • Just like Smal stated, it looks like you don't have enough free space:

      Are you capturing more than one partition? You're pretask is only creating a single partition as C: but your deployment is looking for D: and obviously not finding it.
  • I am only capturing 1 partition. the image capture showed me the
    C: system partition
    D: OS partion
    I captured only the D:
    I have even changed the create partition and name it D: instead of C: still did not work.
    Do i need to rebuild my image and prevent the system partition from being created and let it all stay as C: and then capture it?
    • I always recommend not bothering to capture the system partition, it does little good and mucks up your imaging config, as you are discovering. So yes, I would stick to a single partition on your image.
    • on your master, you can try to just delete the system partition, use the install disk to repair just the one partition and recapture, if not start over with one partition on your master.

      I have never found any use for the second partition
