MDT 2012U1 / Windows 8 deployment - impossible to add a role when deploying windows with language pack

    Question

  • Hello,

    I am having a problem deploying Windows 8 with language packs and adding at the same time a role/feature (netfx3).

    What I have done is creating a Standard Client Task Sequence. In the task sequence I have added, in the State Restore phase, the step Install Roles and Features (where only .Net Framework 3.5 is selected). I have configured nothing else !

    If I use this task sequence, everything is ok; Windows 8 is well deployed and NetFx3 feature is installed.

    Now, if I add one or more language packs in the MDT console and select them when using the previously created task sequence, the deployment fails with one error : ERROR - NetFx3 role processing with DISM.exe failed, rc = -2146498529.
    The language packs are well installed but as the error message says, NetFx3 is not installed.

    In the ZTIOSRole.log I can find this :

    As you can see, in both logfile, the source are copied from the same folder.
    Does anyone have an idea ? what am I missing ?

    I have easily reproduced the problem on another computer (installing ADK/MDT, installing OS and creating task sequence).

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Marc.

  • Hello Marc,

    did you in the meanwhile found a solution for the combination Role/Language-pack ?

    Some here with Windows 8, roles are working fine until adding a language-pack to the task-sequence.

    Thx

  • Hello,

    Sorry, I didn't had much time to further look into the problem so, no answer/solution at the moment.

  • Hello,

    Workaround:

    1. copy stock sxs folder to local disk (e.g c:\sxs)

    2. make a direct internet connection (don't use proxy!)

    3. open admin command prompt and type: DISM.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:c:\sxs

    4. after the successful install find the c:\windows\winsxs folder and sort by date

    5. copy new folders (that are equal to current date) to deployment share's sxs folder (overwrite)

    And now, try standard MDT install (create "Install Role And Feature" step in the Task Sequence, enable .NET install).
