Cannot add wim image to the WDS server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I am struggling with this problem with WDS and really don't have a clue on how to troubleshoot it.

    I need to create an image for Windows 10 deployment for our corporate Desktop pcs.

    Our WDS server is already in place and works fine, so I just started from a fresh Windows installation on one of our new Desktop Pcs and installed some of the standard applications we need on them. After that, I did a sysprep with /generalize and /oobe attributes. After sysprep was done, I restarted the machine, booted from PXE and created the wim image.

    The trouble comes when I try to import the image in the WDS. It starts lo load the image but, after some time, it displays the message "Dati non validi" (unfortunately the Server is in italian) which I can simply translate with "Data not valid".

    I tried to re-create the image several times but the outcome is always the same.

    Do you have some suggestions for understanding why WDS doesn't like that image?

    Thank you very much.
