Refresh Computer TS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have my standard TS Setup and working but i have to boot the computer using either psx or a usb drive.

    I have tried windows 7 start - run and run the litetouch.wsf from the deployment share this works until it tries to boot into WinPE and install's the OS. Then i get Failure 9808 Error - Performing a Refresh from a newer OS to and Older OS is not supported.

    The Machine is a windows 7 and i want it to have windows 7 on it, the only difference i can see is the there has been Windows Updates applied.

    Is this why MDT thinks that it is a newer OS?

    Im using MDT 2013 Update 2

    Thanks

  • Hi

    The refresh scenario is for reinstallation a Windows device and save the user state with USMT - is this what you are trying to accomplice.

    Do you have Deploymenttype=newcomputer in your CustomSettings.ini?

  • Hi

    This was mistake, i was using the tasks that was in the New computer i copied to the Refresh.

    As i did not realise that the Refresh would format the HDD anyway and install windows

    I have now removed them so its back to its Orignal and working fine.

    With this setup or runnning the deplpoyment via UNC rather than a pxe/usb boot is there any need for pxe/usb boot anymore?

  • Hi

    No, only if you what to PXE/usb boot a new computer.

    Kind regards
