AIK System Image Manager (SIM) spontaneously reboots while generating catalog file
I'm trying to generate an answer file for a Vista Business installation
using the Automated Installation Kit with System Image Manager.
The technician computer is running Windows XP Pro SP2 (installed just a
couple weeks ago). I turned off anti-virus software for the installation of
the Automated Installation Kit and also for the creation of the answer file.
Here are the error circumstances: I start SIM and select Vista Business's
INSTALL.WIM which has been copied from the DVD to C:\AIK_WORK. It generates
the expected error about not finding a catalog file, and prompts "Do you
want to create a catalog file?" I answer Yes and a few seconds into
generating the catalog file, it spontaneously reboots.
It has done this both times I tried to run this procedure. I find nothing
illuminating in the Event Logs.
Does anyone recognize this problem?
Can I just copy the Vista Business catalog file from the DVD (found just
after INSTALL.WIM) instead of generating a new one?
