Capturing Windows 7 Image: The volume that contains the OS is not the active partition. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I am trying to capture a Windows 7 image. I am using Config Mgr 2007 SP2. My task sequence fails with the error message:

    The volume that contains the OS is not the active partition. Please consult the product documentation for requirements when capturing an operating system image.

    I am thinking it's because of the system partition automatically created when Windows 7 is installed. Anyone else have this problem and how did you resolve it?

    Thanks!

  • Thank you! I managed to get it working by doing a clean install of Windows 7, when the system reserved partition is created, I deleted the partition I created and used the unallocated space to extend the system reserved partition so that only one primary partition exists.

  • How many partions do you see in your windows 7 partition manager?

  • It was the reserved system partion that windows 7 creates. Make sure it does not do that.

  • If you do a manual capture using a TS, then you have to set the TS variable “OSDTargetSystemRoot = C:\”
