How to install OS to Disk 1 Partition 1 with MDT 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

        Sorry for my poor English.

        I got some pc which have more than one harddisk.I need to deploy windows 7 pro to the second disk.

        So,At fist ,I need to format the fisrt partition in seconde disk,i disable the Partition And Format sequence and i add a new sequence name Format Disk 1 Partition 1 to do a command: diskpart.exe %scriptroot%\d1p1.txt。the content of d1p1.txt is below:

    select disk 1

            select partition 1

            format fs=ntfs quick

    assign letter=c

    active

    exit

    but it is fail to do this,because the letter c had sign to the first disk partition 1.If i change the letter in d1p1.txt to another one ,the unattend.xml will not work! I had try to use another diskpart script to remove the letter of first disk partition 1 

    select disk 0 

    select partition 1

    remove

    select disk 1

            select partition 1

            format fs=ntfs quick

    assign letter=c

    active

    exit

    it will work.But when i login to the windows first time,i will get a error:"Unable to find the SMS Task Sequencer and the Tasksquence stop.

    any one can help me? thanks

  • Multi disk scenarios are difficult with MDT and SCCM, and Multi-boot scenarios (where there are several Operating Systems on the machine), are also not supported.

    Please use the default "Format and Partition Disk" step, and just change the target disk from 0 to 1.

  • Thank you very much.

    I can not use the default "Format and Partition Disk" .because I want to keep the original partition.

  • If you want to keep the original partition, I would recommend using the client task sequence in a "refresh" mode, start \\server\deploymentshare$\scripts\litetouch.vbs from the old PC (*NOT* from WinPE), and start the deployment from there.
