Disabling Windows Error Recovery


While doing some testing with Windows 7 ThinPC  I noticed that when locking the system state to revert to the base image each restart would show the Windows Error Recovery.  This is shown regardless of shutdown type; clean, dirty…

So to avoid seeing this, I have used the following command to set changed this behavior.   First open the cmd prompt as an administrator then type:  bcdedit /set {current} bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures.

I later read that there is a command switch in my enabling of EWF named BootStatusPolicy which would IgnoreAllFailures.
