Server 2008 R2 Template BSOD’s after Deployment

Very annoying after the template had deployed and done its sysprep magic it rebooted and immediatly BSOD’d.

Turns out this is a result of cloning a powered on Server 2008 R2 VM to template, you can fix your broken VM by following these steps:

use win2k8 iso to enter repair mode …

  • ┬árun command prompt
  • diskpart
  • list volumes
  • select volume 1
  • attributes volume
  • attributes volume clear nodefaultdriveletter
