Booting Litetouch screen blacks out RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I got a strange issue, with one of my HP compaq pro 6300, with screen blacks out with initial WInPE load.

    We are using tftp solution to throw Liteouch.wim Image for network boot.  the issue is when one of HP compaq 6300 image with Nvidia g Card, boots through litetouch wim, shows intial MDT2013 splash screen. (where windoows 8 logo is seen with dashed circle) and then it blacks out and nothing is seen.

    Moreover, the same model works fine when used with inbuilt g card.

    However, other HP and Dell model loads fine.

    tried injecting nvidia drivers toi litetouch.wim, also tried changing the screen resolution in winPE unattand.xml, but still its blacks out.

    Any solution is much appreciated.

  • hi

    Do you have more than 1 graphic adaptor in the HP 6300 - I have the same problem on another device.

    It seems like there is only picture on the primary graphic adaptor in WinPe.

  • Hi Per, Yes display is only seen on primary g adapter, i.e inbuilt intel g adapter. Moreover if i perform deployment using wds or directly booting off usb media it shows display on nvidia adapter as well. We are using tftp solution to throw litetouch.wim in network boot, and that when display blacks out

  • Hi Modassir

    Strange - the delivery method for the Winpe should not have influence on how the display adaptor is working in WinPe.

    But why aren't you using WDS as your delivery method for your winPE?

    Kind regards
