MDT Deployment Failed Litetouch deployment failed, Return Code = -2147467259 0x80004005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using MDT 2012 Update 1 with Windows ADK and Server 2012 to try and deploy an image.

    It seems to go through, reaches near 100% I believe, but then shoots back a message about 7 errors.

    I've zipped the log files and have added a link to them here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/u2p4o6c4ocvw5ec/PC-AL3.zip

    Would appreciate it if anyone could please help me solve this issue because I'm hitting a brick wall at the moment.

  • First, when posting log files, please clean out the product key. When a product key is set via the rules (Customsettings.ini) it is visible in the logs.

    Other than that the logs do indicate many drivers missing so it could be that, or possibly the customized partioning, or issues in the (quite large) ref image. Download the Dell Windows 7 x64 driver cab file for Optiplex 760

    For troubleshooting you can do the following:

    1. To rule out driver issues, deploy to a virtual machine (Hyper-V or VMWare Workstation)
    2. To rule out ref-image issues, rename your CAPTURE.WIM, and copy the default install.wim to the same folder, and give it the name CAPTURE.WIM (case sensitive)
    3. To rule out partitioning issues, create a new task sequence with no customizations.

  • Thanks for replying and letting me know about the product key. I removed the logs file for now.

    I made a thick image with all the drivers and programs I wanted installed to a reference Optiplex 760 and then added my deployment share as a network drive (Z:) and launched the LiteTouch.vbs script to sysprep and capture it as an image.

    Would I still need to inject the drivers in this case even though the reference image has all of the drivers for Optiplex 760 installed already?

    I will try the troubleshooting steps you've mentioned, thanks.

  • Yes, by default sysprep deletes any added drivers (unless you tell it not to), and you should be using a virtual machine (Hyper-V or VMware) when creating the reference image.

  • have you found a solution to this issue?  Im having the same exact issue.  ( Log file is exactly the same )

    I did notice one thing, I can deploy the same image and task sequence on 2 different machines just fine, however the 3rd gives me the issue.

    Any help would be appreciated.  I'm about to pull out my damn hair on this one!
