Hi, I'm deploying Windows 8.1 (32 bit) on a Lenovo T60 with 3Gb of RAM and 50Gb SSD. On reboot the sysprep windows appears and then a pop-up window with the error "A fatal error occurred while tying to sysprep the machine". The machine is a bit under powered but should be able to run Win 8.1 for testing. Any help or pointers would be appreciated. Michael.
I have created a new image for Windows 8.1 using Smart Deploy. Everything works great and this image works on 3 models of Lenovo with no issues. I did this mostly as a test in the environment I'm in because Windows 8.1 is not used on the production computers. After getting the basics down, I discovered that the machines that are EFI-aware, are not activating Windows 8.1 because the proper partitions are not installed. See this link for what those should be: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh825686.aspx I'm not sure how to use VirtualBox to setup a Windows 8.1 image that will install on a EFI based computer/laptop that will automatically activate Windows 8.1. Could someone provide guidance?
Looking at the Release Notes I see Server 2012 with Hyper-V as a Virtualization Product. But when I launch the build wizard, the only way to select Windows 8.1 is to select anything other than Windows VIrtual PC. What am I missing?
