How Strange: An in-progress deployment exists, ignore to start a new one or continue the existing one?

An normal deployment to a laptop,.
After Office 2010 Standard deployed, the computer strangely resetted. Then, when the computer had started up, the " An in-progress deployment exists..." warning windows jumped out.
I had check that no "restart computer" step was setted there after the "Install Applications" step.
How strange! Can some one help me with the troubleshooting?

I recommend checking out your log files especially ZTIapplications.log to start troubleshooting
in case you don't know where to find them they are located at C:\MININT\SMSOSD\OSDLOGS during deployments.
when the deployment has finished they will be found under C:\windows\temp\deploymentlogs

A "restart computer" action is 100% OK and is a good thing. Where problems occur is if an application causes a reboot that is not controlled by MDT.
All I can suspect here is that your installation of Office 2010 is rebooting at the end. I'd suggest creating/reviewing the application logs (not the MDT logs in this instance) and see if they say they are putting the machine for a restart - if so then stop it doing this and your problem will disappear.

Office can and may reboot itself. You can stop this by configuring MDT, The Office XML files or by using the OCT.
MDT creates an extra tab for Office products.
If you've used the OCT then you should suppress the reboot there.
