We are currently developing a custom windows image with pre-installed software & configuration. The problem is when WDS captures the build it only has the choice to capture windows install drive and not the system reserved 100MB it uses for win Recovery Environment etc. When deploying back though WDS it then installs on disk from the first sector not re-creating the system reserved as on original computer.

Does anyone know how to get WDS or even MDT to create a system partition for recovery?

Its possible, but not as easy in WDS compared to MDT. Here is a link with the rundown:

MS truly needs to create a simpler solution for non-enterprise users.

I totally agree with that. Why MS has not realised this shortfall is beyond me. Think from that link it will enable me to very nicely get this project finished. Thank you Dashel
