So I'm in an enterprise environment, we are currently working to roll out windows 10. We decided to try DISM to create .wim files of our system os with modifications, and push that to several systems during roll out. Unfortunately we've hit a strange snag and I can't figure where my problem is.
So the jist is this, we use a USB HDD with windows PE (dism commands loaded) to capture the image. We can apply that image to any of our identical modeled PCs. The first .WIM you apply works without issue. The second is where we start noticing problems. Meaning, we apply any .wim file, and then do that exact or different .wim file after a reboot.
This causes DISM to report error code 5 access is denied. To overcome this we format the c:\ and push the new wim file. This however causes our GPT drives to malfunction in boot. So we boot to a CD of Windows 10 and run the 2 repair commands through command prompt for the boot partition. This allows the system to boot.
This is where I get lost. For some reason when you try to create a new profile, local account or domain, I get a user profile service failure message at login. My previous profiles are working fine. My fear is that this is merely the first symptom of many future problems.
I know I'm doing wonky stuff, so I'm hoping someone can read through my rambling and help. Happy to answer any questions to get this working. Thanks in advance!
