    WDM will let me schedule a package update using the images that I pulled from the device, but not the one I downloaded from Wyse’s website. The unit is a 9455xl with XPe. One thing that I have done was resize the partitions on the C: drive and created a new partition as well. Maybe somehow the WDM will not work like expected because of this? The update gets halfway through the update and fails.

    Hi,

    With the ones from the Wyse site edit the .RSP (script file) with the parameter OS=XP and import the image again.

    The Wyse package has an error (OS=XPE) which is incorrect,

    Cheers,

    Wow that seems to be a bit of a simple fix.

    I have been around the world since I posted.

    Installed 256MB flash ram from another 9455 without a 20gig HDD

    Used WSI to push the image to it.

    Stopped it from booting after it got the image.
    Then used ghost to grab the image from the flash ram.
    Then put the image on the 20gig HDD and booted.

    Then let the wyse image do it’s work and it resized the C drive to 1 gig and let the rest be a data drive Y:

    Got the idea of using the flash ram from another post about the 8440xl machines and the mp3 player.

    Boy that was a good post huh 😀

    Thanks for you help.

    Ohh yeah ..

    WSI would not push the image until I installed the flash ram on IDE 2.

    Cool, yeah the 9455 and 941 like the flash in the second IDE port for some reason – if you image these and get “wizard archive failure” swapping the flash can do it.

    So on the HDD you should now have partition 1, 2 and 3.

    Partition 1 – the small 1MB Wyse space used by the wfs and write filter
    Partition 2 – The Windows system partition
    Partition 3 – Data

    If this is how it looks and the write filter is working OK you can use WSI to pull and push the image from the HDD. You want to use WSI in the end as it will capture the BIOS and create the 1MB partition 1 correctly.

    Play with the pull.i2c file in the 9455 folder in the ftprootrapporttoolssa directory on your WSI setup. You can change the =YES or NO.

    If its set to no the partition will be created but no data copied.

    I think you are the XPe imaging guru now so I will let you answer all future imaging questions in this forum 🙂

    Have a good weekend!
