  • But MDT 2013 is still preview and not fully released?
    Tuesday, September 10, 2013 9:33 AM
  • Correct, MDT 2013 Preview is all that is available at the moment. The final version will be available in October.  (The error you are seeing is caused by an incompatibility in the unattend.xml template being used with Windows 8.1.  That incompatibility doesn't exist in MDT 2013.)

  • But you can use MDT 2013 preview to deploy. 

    MDT2013 download address:

  • Thx for the links!

  • I have installed mdt 2013 on a seperate server from mdt 2012.
    So i can test/deploy windows 8.1 from mdt 2013 without touching MDT 2012!

  • Michael,

    Can you explain this in a bit more detail.  Just installed 2013 and can't really see much in the way of differences to the templae supplied with 2012.

    Cheers

  • I believe there was only one change to the unattend.xml (to remove an obsolete IE welcome page entry). See http://blogs.technet.com/b/mniehaus/archive/2013/10/19/mdt-2013-what-s-changed.aspx for more information.

  • So what.

    Only MDT 2013 and Windows ADK 8.1 are supported by Microsoft for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 deployments.

  • Please look at the bdd.log and/or smsts.log file to see what the error is.

    If you need help debugging the problem, copy the bdd.log file to a public site like Skydrive and copy the link here.

  • This solved the problem for me

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2797676

    To workaround this problem you must edit the following files:

    %DeployRoot%\Scripts\LTIApply.wsf (%DeployRoot% is the path you specified when the deployment share was created.)
    C:\Program files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit\Templates\Distribution\Scripts\LTIApply.wsf

    Locate the "Copy bootmgr" section in LTIApply.wsf and add the following code above the existing code under the section:

     If not oFSO.FolderExists(sBootDrive & "\Boot") then
       oFSO.CreateFolder(sBootDrive & "\Boot")
    End if
