Chris Jones Posted June 19, 2019 Report Share Posted June 19, 2019 Good morning, For quite some time now we've been successfully deploying an image using SmartDeploy, and in the answer file having it copy over a folder from the USB media to the C:\ drive as a post deployment task. First login then executes various installers and a configuration script. We don't want to bake these in as they're somewhat fluid, and we like being able to tweak, add, remove without fussing with the image. Recently though we've had system from Dell where copying this folder simply doesn't work. On investigation, the SmartPE environment doesn't seem to see a logical drive for Physical Disk 0. The whole imaging process will still works, but as my post deployment task copies from the deployment media (using the %SmartDeploy_Media% variable) to C:\, that just doesn't happen. Is there a similar variable I could use to reference the destination drive? Another oddity, if the system did image once, the next time we try to image SmartPE does see Physical Drive 0 as C:\ and everything works as expected. Also open to suggestions on an alternative way to achieve this without baking the files into the image. I had hoped to leverage application packs, but that seems to require using a SmartDeploy server setup (which we do not use). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
