MDT 2013 UPDATE 1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 iso file downloaded via the media creation app from Microsoft, one is en-gb and the other is en-us, they are both in x86 and x64 windows 10240.

    My issue is when I try to import them into the operating system section of mdt, I am able to import en-gb successfully however when I import en-us I am told that the wim file can not be read. Is this due to the language setting of my computer or is there another reason for this.

    I have tried importing with and without source files and not had any success. They are both from the Microsoft server so I can not see why other that the reason stated.

    Any ideas.

  • I too have encountered this with the "Get Windows 10" App at:

    Yes, MDT fails to import ISO images generated by this app.

    Various Product Group Teams are aware of the issue, but it won't get fixed anytime soon.

    This is an interaction issue between MDT and the Windows API used to manage WIM files. The API can't handle *.wim files captured with "dism.exe /capture-image /Compress:Recovery"

    Best course of action is to use installation media from TechNet download. If you can't, you might be able to work around the issue by applying the install.wim to a *.vhd disk and re-capturing it back to a new WIM file with /Compress:Fast

  • Does Install.wim exist on the EN-US media?

    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/
