Deploying and exisiting customised WIM (sysprep) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,


    I have an issue trying to deploy a (already customised) WIN10 1903 wim image via MDT.


    recently upgraded MDT v8456 (from 829?), replaced the boot images in WDS and restarted the server. ADK has also been updated for 1909

    I have added the WIM to the Operating Systems (selected does not need system files).

    Created a standard client TS and deployed to the client and got the following errors. (couldn't upload the entire content due to 4-60000 limit)

    I have NOT edited the customsettings.ini since the upgrade. (checked the files from the DeploymentShare\backup and all seem to be the same)


    Now I am getting prompted for the administrator password also. Have I missed something.

    Could someone please confirm which Task Sequences need to be disabled if I just want to deploy the drivers and OS?

    also noticed the deployment PE environment is not displaying the '_SMSTSORGNAME' as specified in the customsettings.ini and the deployment does not show under monitoring in the console

  • From Initial Observation It seems that Inject drivers steps is causing an issues. Can you please re validate and Uploading Logs in (OneDrive /SharePoint) or any others Sites.

    See the above. I did also try creating a new DeploymentShare. Same issue ...

    It does look like it tries to install the OS but seems to fail at the same step every time...49% 45/90 steps
