MDT 2013 Deployment Windows 7 -- Time Zone Prompt after applying image RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello -

    I am trying to deploy Windows 7 Pro x64 with MDT/WDS and all is working well except for getting prompted to confirm (the wrong) timezone at the end of installation.

    I have confirmed in the BDD log it is setting the TimeZoneName correctly based on DefaultGateway. However when the machine reboots for PostInstall and StateRestore it prompts for the timezone and shows Pacific Standard Time again. http://imgur.com/FMeTky8 Image link

    I have tried several times to correct this, including blowing away the CS.INI and doing everything under the default settings without success. 

    Also, as suggested in another thread, I created a TS variable to set TimeZoneName with %TimeZoneName% which did not change anything.

    I appreciate other any help I can get with this.

    BDD.log excerpt

    <![LOG[Using from [mpls]: TIMEZONE = 020]LOG]!><time="13:34:48.000+000" date="02-25-2015" component="ZTIGather" context="" type="1" thread="" file="ZTIGather">

  • Looks like your time zone names are incorrect.

    Try "Central Standard Time" and "SE Asia Standard Time".

    For reference, you can type "tzutil /l" at a command prompt to get a list of all time zone names.

  • Thanks Sean -

    I swore I checked that like 10 times, since that is what everyone messes up. Is there a sheepish emoticon on here :-) 

    I changed it and it works great

    Thanks!
