Setup Bootstrapper crashes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using MDT 2013 on a Win 2012R2 Server to deploy a Win 8.1 Ent image

    First time I attempt to image a new PC. it injects the drivers, applies the image, goes through the 'Getting Devices Ready' phase, then when it boots into windows, after a short wait an error appears:

    Microsoft Setup Bootstrapper has stopped working

    and the deployment fails.

    Now, if i reboot the machine, and re-try the deployment, it deploys without issue..

    Any ideas??

  • As an update, if the computer fails to join the domain ( I disabled the build account) then the install progresses normally.
