recImg.exe fails - Event ID's 8193 & 12290 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to use win8x64pro's built in refImg.exe to make a custom refresh image.

    This is a Lenovo fairly new laptop that was win7 and I installed the $40 upgrade to win8pro on.

    I've tried several things to eliminate this including reinstalling the upgrade fresh.. always same.  Failure.

    you might look here in answers.microsoftcom http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-performance/recimgexe-fails-event-ids-8193-12290/fd14ff7e-8bcb-456e-a061-0736e438aee8    for some discussion;  They've sent me here.

    Thanks !

  • Hello,

    It was the same for me.

    I see you use a RamDisk like me. So I stop my Ram disk and block the service for one restart.

    I reboot and launch the command : "recimg -CreateImage D:\RefreshImage".

    And ... It's working now.

    I hope it will be the same for you.

    Cheers !

  • Hi ,

    This issue was caused by ASR writer failure. Is there any anti-virus application installed? If so, please uninstall it and perform the action again. See if this helps.

    Please let me know the partition layout of the PC. Is there any OEM partition installed?

    Thanks.

  • Hello,

    Only anti-virus ever installed  is the windows 8 default  'Windows Defender' 

    I just now disabled it, restarted the computer and same failure at 27%. 

    My hard drive is 4 simple basic 'primary' partitions

    System Reserve  boot partition (active)

    C Windows  120gb prox

    D Data Partition   300gb prox

    E System Backup partition(control panel windows 7) 50gb prox.

    I've played with partition sizes hoping it was something simple there, but always with same fail results.

    The ending OEM partition was deleted, reformatted/resized.      The original install was regular Upgrade now!  After that I've installed it to unallocated space from C:\EDS,   also installed again unallocated from DVD.. and several ways I could think of.

    Thanks for your assistance and thoughts !

    .............

    Reading two on the web with similar problems for regular backup..  same error numbers and similar vss failures.  For both regsvr32 to VSS*.dll resolved their problems.

    I've attempted that, most registered fine but two.. which im not sure if they have responded ok or not.. both 32 and 64 bit versions of vssapi.dll & vsstrace.dll reported in a message box ... the module was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.    http://i50.tinypic.com/25jw7du.jpg       if that should be of importance ?.

    Regular system images from the windows 7  win8 control panel work fine with no errors.  Same with EaseUS Todo & Macrium images.  they work normal.

  • Thanks Pi0ive !!!!   That worked ..  hopefully work again next time.

    I've tried it before with DataRam RAMdisk disabled.  Somewhere along the line something else fixed it and ramdisk must have been a 2nd reason for it not running.    

     

     

    about 35 minutes, to make a 7gb .wim ;

    edit;  recImg works seemingly fine with SoftPerfect RamDisk set as a portable drive loading an img from boot. I unmount the drive and use windows to set just the image as compressed, which makes it fast boot and does away with any 'known folder' events.
