Can't import DART 10 boot.wim to SCCM Current Branch 1606 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I'm trying to implement PXE boot of DART recovery image using SCCM Task Sequence.

    I've read alot about it and tried many guides, like this one: http://www.ideadata.co.uk/index.php/pxe-booting-dart-8-1-with-sccm-2012-including-remote-viewer/

    I've got to step "Import Wim File as a Boot Image into SCCM 2012".

    However, when I'm trying to import the image that I made with DART Recovery image builder to SCCM, I'm getting an error ("UNC path does not have a valid boot image...").

    Whats would you suggest to troubleshoot that? 

    We're using SCCM CB with latest updates, ADK 10 1607, DART from MDOP 2015

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi, Try 
    Export-WindowsImage -CompressionType maximum -SourceImagePath "$PSScriptRoot\dart10.wim"  -SourceIndex 2 -DestinationImagePath "$PSScriptRoot\boot.wim"

    Simply explained it's spliting the wim volume
    And the real image is on volume 2. I tested it in 1610 CB and I can import it. Did try to use the TS on your link

  • That works! And the TS from that article in 1st post actually does work aswell, we now have a working DART10 boot image. Yay!

  • Thank you so much for this fix. I've spent 2 days messing about with WIM files trying to get this to work. Much appreciated.
