We make a USB3.0 Utra Flash Drive a WinPE Bootable drive.
Under WinPE execution, scripts in the USB Flash Drive performs imaging of the laptop SSD drive to make is a new Windows 7 bootable system.
Sometimes it works fine.
"The system cannot find the path specified" and also "Device not detected"
as if the USB suddenly disappears for a while from the laptop.
This appearing disconnection (or file access failure) is temporary and possibly transient because at the end of the script execution, the USB Flash Drive volume is present and readable again: a dir command at WinPE command line shows it contents correctly.
Have you heard of such possible issues? Could you please help us?
PS: we fear that this happens only with specific instances/lots of USB Flash Drives because the error reports from our sites are very sporadic.
