I'm making a windows (2012) deployment server with a capture boot image. I'm building a win7 client image to sysprep on virtualbox. I syspreped it changed the network to boot first and then I get a memory location type of error telling me "a" device couldn't load. It has to do with a driver because I pxe boot another non-virtual machine just fine. I tried extracting the drivers from virtualbox guest additions but the latest release drivers get rejected when trying to add them to the capture image. Does anyone know of a version of the virtualbox guest additions that this worked on? (4.3.6 r91406 doesn't work no matter how many intel 825xx drivers I load)


If you have Server 2012, forget virtual box. Use Hyper-V.
