Create Windows 7 image with Novell ZCM

Last week I created a Windows 7 Professional image with Novell ZCM. When I deployed the image to a workstation, it displayed an error when Windows was started:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might
be the
cause. File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe Status: 0xc0000225 Info:
The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.”

The Solution was very simple:
Execute the following commands before sealing your image with sysprep:

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device boot
bcdedit /set {default} device boot
bcdedit /set {default} osdevice boot

Now you’ll be able to deploy your image to the workstations!
