Problems booting image

I am trying to create a working image for VMware, and I have run ta.exe, and
imported the file into Target Designer. This goes smoothly. I then run a
dependancy check, and add things like shells and file systems. Everything
passes the check, I build the image, and deploy it to the VM. On booting,
it says that Windows was unable to start because of a missing DLL.

Now I'm not sure where to start with adding components to rememdy this
situation. I have had about the same luck with using the ta.exe, and adding
a predefined template after, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

I do seem to have this message when importing, which might be related, but I
don't even know what driver it's looking for.

Adding Intel 82371EB Power Management Controller to the configuration.

Info 101: Initializing new component: "Intel 82371EB Power Management
Controller [Version 5.1.2600, R620]"

Adding AMD PCNET Family PCI Ethernet Adapter to the configuration.

I am using the SP2 database.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

TA found two hardware devices with PnP id's that do not exist in the database.
When you see these errors it usually means that drivers for the devices are not
in the database and therefore XPe cannot provide support for them in your image.
To solve it find suitable drivers, componentise them and add them to the
database, then re-import your hardware analysis.

Andrew,

Also, what is the missing dll? Is it hal.dll? If so:

1) Make sure the file exists in System32
2) Make sure you aren't building a debug build (this functionality doesn't
work in XPe despite the tools giving you the option)
3) Make sure your arc path in boot.ini points to the correct disk and
partition that you are expecting to boot from.

HTH,
Brad
