TS Role installation - Stuck on shutdown screen 'preparing to configure windows'


  • I have a problem which happen on 3/5 builds.

    My TS script in MDT 2010 installs the RDS Session Host role after which it automatically reboots the deployment as expected due to the reboot requirement this role has. The reboot begins to shutdown windows but stalls on the 'Preparing to configure your Windows, do not shut down your computer' screen.

    The TS is running against a custom Windows Std R2 SP1 64bit wim which contains the latest updates. The deployment is running on a HP DL380 G5

    I have found one article which references a similar problem but on start up

    Any suggestions?

  • Try it without the updates and see if you run in the same problem. I had a similar problem a view weeks ago with the ADS role

    If everyting runs, install the plain server with all updates and capture it. Then make a deployment, for me, it works.

    good hunting
