Offline Media Windows 8.1X64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I follow offline method to deploy Windows 7X64 to give some clear picture this is what i do,

    1. Boot from WinPE(USB stick) 

    2. Run Custom script in WinPE which calls Diskpart wipes and create one single partition(Create Partition ..Format Partition..ACTIVE...exit ) 

    3. Initiate copy of the CONTENT folder ...REBOOT 

    4. Follow the TS ...Complete  

    it works flawless I tried to do the same for Windows8.1X64 it results in "Hard Disk - (3f0) boot device not found"  but when I boot it via LTI from MDT server it works perfect issue is only with offline media, I am using ADK for Windows 8.1 so WinPE is the correct version my question do I need to include any additional package ...drivers...scripts ..?

    Attaching BDD Log for  Offline Media Deployment and LTI installation

  • I notice this only in Offline-Media deployment BDD Log  "Property IsOEM is now = True"

    And ZTIDiskpart will not perform any actions like formatting ...Partitioning ...etc

  • As you are able to MDT boot media it works , so is the offline media created from MDT only or you have used other method to get created.

    I don't understand this statement. Do you use the ZTIDiskPart.wsf script, or are you using a script you created?

    There are other steps in task sequence that depend on variables set by ZTIDiskPart.wsf, so generally I don't recommend replacing ZTIDiskPart.wsf with your own script.

    Additionally, I don't see the bdd.log files on OneDrive.

    IF you are still having problems, please copy the bdd.log file from a full run to a public share like one drive, and copy the link here.

  • Sorry for the confusion I use custom script in WinPE before initiating copy of the CONTENT folder ,here is the sequence,

    Boot system to Winpe > Call the custom script (Clean...Partition ...Format ...Assign letter ..Active..Exit) ....Xcopy Content folder > Reboot > This will bring up the Task Sequence > Staging.

    I just verified the link its working

    I generate a Generic WinPE from MDT which I use to boot into WinPe then perform a DISKPREP ...then Xcopy the CONTENT folder ..exit WinPE .......When system reboot its kickstarts MDT Task sequence.

  • You could use the LTIOEM task sequence to much the same affect.

    Most important details are logs. If you are unsure how to post logs or where to find them then reference https://keithga.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/video-mdt-2013-log-files-basics-bdd-log-and-smsts-log/

  • Yes, I can't tell from the logs what you have done to prepare the hard disk, so my assumption is the custom script used to set things up.

    Specifically, what is missing on the machine that is preventing the machine from booting?

    Staging goes smooth till it applies image ....after 100% Image Install it goes for REBOOT, then I get this error.

    BOOT DEVICE NOT FOUND

    PLEASE INSTALL AN OPERATING SYSTEM ON YOUR HARDISK

    HARD DISK -(3F0)

  • I am aware of the error message, however, we don't have access to your script or your hardware for repro, so we can only guess what the problem is. You should do some analysis to determine what boot components are missing from the hard disk that prevents it from booting, bootldr? bcd? boot sector?

    Right now, we know that MDT can install on your laptop, so the problem is most likely your custom script.
