Problem generating ISO image with Deployment Workbench

    질문

  • Hi all,

    I've been trying to create an ISO image of Windows 7 for deployment using the Media Content portion of the Deployment Workbench.  I have configured an OS, added software and tasklists and everything is fine there.  When I try to run Update Media Content however, it fails, claiming it needs more disk space:

     

    Starting MDT Media Update
    Opened the media deployment share.
    Folders to be copied to the media deployment share: 6
    Copied: DS001:\Applications
    Copied: DS001:\Operating Systems
    Copied: DS001:\Out-of-Box Drivers
    Copied: DS001:\Packages
    Copied: DS001:\Task Sequences
    Copied: DS001:\Selection Profiles
    Copied: DS001:\Applications with Replace option
    Copied: DS001:\Operating Systems with Replace option
    Copied: DS001:\Out-of-Box Drivers with Replace option
    Copied: DS001:\Packages with Replace option
    Copied: DS001:\Task Sequences with Replace option
    Copied: DS001:\Selection Profiles with Replace option
    Copied standard folders.
    Boot images updated.
    Setting up x64 boot image.
    Boot configuration editing completed.
    Reset read-only attributes.
    
    Starting: "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\AMD64\OSCDIMG.EXE" -u2 -m -o -h -b"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\ETFSBOOT.COM" "E:\Windows 7 Deployment\Content" "E:\Windows 7 Deployment\Windows 7 Deployment.iso" > "C:\Users\ELLIOT~1.BAR\AppData\Local\Temp\Update-MDTMedia.3400\Update-MDTMedia-91126.log" 2>&1
    
    
    Exit code = 1

    All content was copied to the media directory, but the ISO generation was not successful. This might be due to insufficient disk space at the target path External Drive.
    

    The thing is, the external drive has tons of space!  (see the screenshot here , even the Local C: drive has enough space to house the image)

    Anybody seen this before?  Any idea what to do to fix it??

    Thanks in advance!

    Cheers,

  • Hi,

     

    I would like to suggest you disable the antivirus program and test to change the target location to the internal hard disk in Clean Boot.

     

    Does it work?

  • Taking a guess here, but you might try removing spaces from ISO name and file path.  I know at least the ISO names in MDT by default have no spaces in them, and it is a command line tool that makes the ISO.  I don't have an MDT in front of me to try, but it's the best suggestion I have right off by looking at your logs.

  • Good call, but unfortunately that didn't work either.  I found another article actually, indicating that spaces might cause problems so I tried that just after posting, but the same error occurs.

    Anybody got anything else?

  • Thanks for the advice, I'll try that when I'm back in the office next week.

  • Just got back to the office today and tried simply moving the target location for the ISO output to a location on the C: drive.  What do you know, it worked!

     

    Note to anyone else having this problem:  since space on my C: drive is limited, I had to move the root of my Deployment Share to an external drive, but that worked just fine, provided that the output target for the ISO is on the local disk.

     

    Thanks for the help!

  • Hi

    I am having the same issue but my ISO output has always been C drive. I tried to change it to D: and it didn't work. I tried to change the output folder names and didn't work.

    Any other suggestions?

    Regards,

  • I started a related thread - basically it seems like you *must* specify "Generate x64 boot image" if you have "Generate x86 boot image" checked in the Deployment share properties -- otherwise the ISO will not be generated and you hit the error OP described.

  • I had a similar situation with this error

    All content was copied to the media directory, but the ISO generation was not successful. This might be due to insufficient disk space at the target path

    Found that even though VMware said the .iso was not mounted, it somehow was hanging onto it. I shut down wmware, which was previously mounting the .iso, and was able to create media and .iso again, just fine.
