MDT Media build on clean (empty) HDD failing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    My MDT task sequence is failing whenever run from USB media and the machine's HDD begins in a "clean" state.

    The logs show that ZTIDiskPart.wsf is switching the USB media drive from C: to W:, but then the next task - Copy Scripts - immediately fails. After experimentation I've determined that it fails because the %SCRIPTROOT% variable is not resolving to "W:\Deploy\Scripts".

    Any pointers?

    Not all of my systems have blank HDDs, but some invariably will.

  • Not sure what is going on here. I have heard of problems when using HDD based USB Drives (as compared to Flash Based USB Drives).

    If you could copy the bdd.log file to a public site like OneDrive and copy the link here.

  • Cheers this seems to be the case.

    Issue seems to be earlier on when booting off a HDD-based USB drive, the MININT and _SMSTaskSequence folders are created on the USB drive instead of X:\, and it all goes a bit wrong from there.

    It also happens when attempting to refresh a computer that has an encrypted drive.

    Will do a bit more investigation and report back.
