    NTLDR is missing while provisioning Win2k3

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to provision Win2k3 but getting an error.
      After Provisioning Job started, it goes up to 14/16 steps in Provisioning Manager Progress Pane and Machine restarts.
      Then I am getting an error as:


      NTLDR is missing

      Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart

       

      After restarting the system again same error message.
      The log I am getting for provisioning process is as follows:

      ------

       

      It shows that Target Machine is not able to create a mapped drive for pxestore.
      I tried to create a mapped drive of datastore from a different machine just to check the permissions/access to shared folder(datastore) thru command

       

      net use k:\\192.168.1.86\pxestore admin_123 /user:bladmin

       

      and it successfully created mapped drive.
      Can anyone please help me on this that why the target machine is not able to access mapped folder?

       

      Thanks in Advance,
      Priti.
