Ever since I updated our deploymentshare to Update 1 I've had my WS 2008 R1 deployments fail. The OS installs without errors but when the server reboots I get a Boot Manager error stating that acpi.sys is missing or corrupt. (0xc0000098). I'm using the installation media, no custom image. When I extract the acpi.sys from the wim file and copy it to the server the error is gone, but a new corrupt sysfile is detected.

Update: I've copied over these files from an installation of WS 2008 on a VMWare esx VM:
Now I'm stuck on vdrvroot.sys. I can't find that file on the VM. All I've found out about that driver is that it's the Root virtual drive enumerator and it has something to do with VHD kernel mode. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd323654(v=vs.85).aspx
Calling doctor Niehaus! Please report to the emergency room!

I fixed it myself. I had the Inject Drivers task set to All Drivers and Packages. For some reason this causes the system drivers from the WinPE environment to be injected into the installed OS, probably because the 32-bit WinPE is based on 32-bit WS 2008, which is the OS I'm deploying.
Too bad I can't award myself points :^)
