MDT - Creating Offline Media is Failing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having a problem getting the Offline Media option to work with MDT.  I currently have an up-to date MDT solution installed (MDT build 8443 with ADK 10 v1703 that I use to deploy win7 and win10 successfully to about 700 computers in our fleet).  There are times when we need to image in the field, and doing so across the WAN to isolated offices can be a big pain (and a time sink, etc.) so I would like to get a usb stick with all the necessary items on it to do a full offline image when necessary.

    I setup a media option for both win7 and win10 under Advanced Configuration\Media and a storage location *outside* of my deployment share.  I setup selection profiles for them to target the items I wanted them to include.  When I go and 'Update Media Content' it does generate the content, but I get a 'BCDEdit returned an Error' message and I havent' been able to get the content to work from the drive, so there seems to be something wrong there.

    Any suggestions on how to get this to work?

  • I have already tried completely removing everything under 'content' to re-generate it and I went and made an entirely new media (Media003) with a new selection profile and that still fails with the same message. So, both win7, win10 1607, and win10 1703 all fail for me.

    I will remove the content again and make a selection profile change and try to re-generate the win10 1703 (Media003) content again with DebugView running and see what happens.

    If anyone has any idea where I can get more specific info on that error, please let me know. I've looked and looked, but nothing seems to tell me what is actually going wrong with this process.

    ok, I have re-ran it and it failed again. Here is the output from the Update Media Content Action:

    I have the output from the debug viewer, but it won't let me post the link.

  • Trying to break this down to see what's going on. I made a new Selection profile with very minimal components to see if that would make any difference - still getting the same BCDError.

    The item immediately prior to the error is 'Setting up dual x86/x64 boot image', so I removed the x86 from the media properties (still failed) and then did just the x86 (still failed). It needs one or the other so I can't test neither. I'm going to try having it not generate the iso to see if that makes any difference. I really don't have much info to go on, not sure what else to check...

  • Hi !

    I'm facing the exact same issue.

    Have you found a solution since your last post ?

    MDT build 6.3.8450.1000, ADK 10.1.16299.15

    Here is the output DebugView when I launch an "update media" in Deployment Workbench :
