  • I'm just going to cut/paste my "fix" for when I saw this issue. You can either recreate your Task Seq. and see if that will generate a catalog file, or follow this below. It's chopped up just as a reminder for me of what to do...

    In your Deployment Share/Operating systems, check the properties. It will say what the image name is, ex:

    CAPTURE-006DDrive and file name: Win8.1E Image.wim.

    In WSIM, create a new catalog file and browse to

    E:\MDTBuild\Operating Systems\ (OS version)\Sources and copy the .CLG file (install_Windowsxxx).

    Paste that CLG file in

    E:\MDTDeploy\Operating Systems\(whatever Task).

    Copy the WIM name (without the .wim) and rename the CLG, but then add _CAPTURE-XXX,

    whatever the CAPTURE-number was from above

  • Thanks I will try it out tomorrow. Does it matter what version of the ADK I have installed for SIM to work correctly?

  • You need to re-import the Operating System again and try to generate the catalog files!
