Bootmgr not found after imagex deployment

Issue with deployment of Windows 8 wim with imagex deployment.

Applied image like below from WinPE

    1. Diskpart
    2. Select disk 0
    3. Clean
    4. Create partition primary
    5. Select partition 1
    6. Active
    7. Format quick
    8. Assign letter=c
    9. Exit
    10. Imagex /apply h:\lab\windows8.wim 1 c:

Afterwards system wouldn’t boot, giving error about bootmgr not found. Checked files and everything disk had been imaged correctly. Had to do the following to get the system to start:

  1. bootsect /nt60 c:
  2. bcdboot c:\windows

Strange, but short on time so this solution works for now.
