Stopping Launch Startup Repair for VMware Horizon View Golden Image

Added on: 10.01.13, by Sean Trifero

Creating an efficient, well performing golden image for VMware Horizon View can be a discouraging task to say the least.  I’ve ran through the VMware View Optimization Guide, modified registry settings to send UDP packets faster, optimized multi-window dragging & coalescing settings, etc.  Recently, I was troubleshooting an issue with a virtual desktop being listed as “Agent Unreachable” just to find out via console that Windows 7 booted into startup repair mode. Luckily it’s pretty easy to disable this from happening.  Drop to command prompt as an Administrator and issue the following command:

   bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy ignoreshutdownfailures

This will stop Windows 7 from launching startup repair if the dirty shutdown count is reached.  You could swap out ignoreshutdownfailures with ignoreallfailures if you wanted to also ignore boot failures.
