MDT 2013 U2 Media Build Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed Update 2 and upgraded the deployment shares, I also edited the Setting.XML to create a Split WIM file for UEFI Boot Support.

    When attempting to create media I get the following:

    Starting MDT Media Update
    Opened the media deployment share.
    Folders to be copied to the media deployment share: 21

  • As an FYI in continuing to troubleshoot I attempted to build the media with the split WIM disabled and it built successfully. I enable the split WIM and again same error, so it is something to do with the fact the WIM is being split that is causing this issue.

  • Are there multiple OS in the WIM?

  • Single OS that has a 5.1GB WIM file being split into two SWM files.
