MDT 2012 Update 1 OSD Failing at Start-Up RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm puzzled here. I've installed brand new MDT 2012 UP1 Site with everything working. I create a Media and include my task sequence, the image I want to install and an Application I'd like to install. The Media is about 3.3 GB big and has everything in it. I've checked the customsettings.ini and the bootstrap.ini and both are filled with the correct data.

    When booting off this image, WinPE 4.0 starts, but then direclty jumps into a CMD and stays there. When closing the CMD, WinPE just reboots... 

    I have no idea where to look :-(

    Here's a scrrenshot... it just sits there :-/

    Does anyone have an idea?

    Cheers,

    Fred

  • post your cs.ini and bootstrap.ini.  Did you edit them at all?  If you have SkipBDD=YES in cs.ini, delete it.

  • Are you injecting any drivers into your WinPE boot images?  Also, when posting your CustomSettings.ini and Bootstrap.ini, make sure to post them from the Media, not from the Deployment Root. : )

  • Just to make sure we are on the same page, when you say you selected what you wanted and created Media (3.3 GB), you meant under Deployment Share --> Advanced Configuration --> Media, correct?  The BootStrap.ini and CustomSettings.ini you shared have references to the network Deployment Share.  The purpose of the Media option is that everything is installed from Flash Drive / CD and doesn't actually connect to the network.  Note that each Media, under properties has it's own BootStrap.ini and CustomSettings.ini that are different than those of the Deployment Share itself, since the rules are for different use cases and need different settings.

    If you want to do network based deployments, then you should be looking for the smaller Boot Image ISO under %DeployRoot%\Boot (it will be roughly 250 MB depending on options and drivers).  For a network based deployment, use this Boot Image instead.
