Litetouch deployment failed, Return Code = -2147467259 0x80004005, Litetouch trying to install OS on V:\?

I'm using a custom image for a Lenovo M82 thinkcentre. Custom meaning non-sysprepped, I've got all custom tweaks I want in this image and sysprepping it destroys some of those settings. I've also captured the recovery partition as is, and am running a command prompt after the OS is installed.
I should point out that the recovery partition on the factory recovery partition looks like it's at the beginning of the disk and ID is set to 27. Then the OS disk, Then the Data partition. I've manually tested deploying this by applying the images myself and rebooting to no avail. I've tested this before on lenovo machines and I'm pretty sure the recovery partition points to the OS somehow, just not sure exactly.
I'm trying to emulate the way this is setup and deploy it with MDT. If there is some easy scripts I can run to fix the issues I've mentioned in the first paragraph, I would rather do that than troubleshoot how to properly install the factory recovery partition. I'm not sure why it's trying to install the OS to my OS volume as the V: drive either. Does windows have something against being install to anything other than C or D?

My test deployment share is installing every OS in it to the V: drive. I enabled skipbitlocker in rules, changing it back because I'm using the active partition.
Will post results.

Here's the BDD log:
Friday, February 01, 2013 7:33 PMI am having the exact same problem. Were you ever able to resolve it?

I wasn't able to fix this problem specifically. My testdeploy$ share was new so instead of wasting time on it I was able to create a new share and work off of that just fine.
From what I understand, from my original post, the letters assigned to partitions are temporary in litetouch PE. Once it crosses over into the OS, that's where any partitions you want to change, change it there via command line, script, etc.
