I am using WDS (Server 2008) and MDT (2012) and I want to deploy XP SP3 to a Dell Optiplex 7010.
My XP image works fine with older Optiplex models, but I get a NTLDR error with the Optiplex 7010.
After PostInstall and then Restart Computer (from Task Sequence). Then the OS wont boot, I get the ntldr error.
I have tried the drivers on a working Optiplex 7010 with XP. So the drivers shold be ok.
And I also want to ask, is there anyway to log the progress of the deployment? So that I can see why my
Optiplex 7010 doesn´t boot after the first restart.

Newer Dell devices use AFHD (http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/enterprise-client/w/wiki/deploying-dell-systems-with-advanced-format-hard-drives.aspx), so if you haven't dealt with AFHD, this may be the issue.
If not, what configuration are your drives in (RAID, AHCI, etc).
For monitoring, you can use the MDT Monitoring Service:
You can also log directly to the network, but note this is somewhat bandwidth intensive:
