Restore Xp install.wim after Vista and get err1err3


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

With imagex i made a install.wim file from xp pro. I made from a 26 gb big partition C: Than i format the hole harddrive. After it i made a 30 big partition ash drive c: I wash happy that i could just restore the install.wim with imagex and all worked.

I did a TIME taking reinstall of my Vista Home Premium recovery disk's. (Installed sp1 and sp2 + 150 updates. Did really take long to Install update Vista bloadware) After it i did a sysprep and used imagex in the next step to make a install.wim. Happy me finally got my Vista updated and backed up. Sow now i could format the anoying Vista from my harddrive.

Sow now i did use imagex again and restore my xp install.wim to the c drive. (I did format the drive 100% before image restore. Slow option) When i did boot i did get the message err1err3

Why does xp not work? Something wrong with the bootloader ore bootsect maybe?

      I've researched the subject and have found almost all info needed to construct a batch command pipeline except how to get all keys from .reg file (or from command line) to get properly inserted into mounted subkey.
      I did found info about method involving running reg/regedit under desired user account, but i doubt it would work for user accounts inside wim and i also need to target key "HKU/.DEFAULT". I didn't test this.
      I have succeeded importing a hand-crafted .reg file into mounted subkey, but this would require me to manually alter all keys in .reg file so they get under required locations.
      If there is no other solution, i will try to put something together to partially automate this task.
