MDT 2013u2 Getting stuck at "Processing Rules" of Bootstrap settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have seen a few other posts of this and the solutions they provided have not helped my situation.

    This is what I am looking at. I checked the BDD.log and this was what pulled up:

    **Full disclosure I pulled these pictures from another post because they match my issues. I use a system called Secure Host Baseline (SHB) to run my windows deployment which makes my rules very long and convoluted. Being that my MDT is on a secure network **I can't copy over information unless I type it by hand**

    I have checked to make sure I have no repeating "[Default]" or "[Settings]" throughout my rules. I confirmed that it is calling out the correct task sequence. I have verified everything that I can think of. All I am trying to do is build a WIM file for my Reference image to call out for my deployment build. So, this MDT is getting stuck in a virtual machine....

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Hello,

    You're missing some parameters in settings ini files. Please validate the Bootstrap.ini and CustomSettings.ini. Don't forget to regenerate the boot image.
