MDT 2013 U2 -> Win10 Build Lab : Processing Bootstrap Settings - Stuck at Processing Rules RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI folks, I need your help.

    We are starting to look forward to W10 upgrade, and therefore i setup a Build Lab, to create a W10 image.
    However, it stops during "Processing Bootstrap Settings - Processing rules.", it works fine on Win 7 ?

    Using MDT 2013 U2 on Server 2012R2 and ADK W10

    When looking in the logs on the deploy client in hyperv client (F8 -> X:\MININT\SMSOSD\OSDLOGS\BDD.log) i can see that it says:

    ERROR - rule Priority key not set in section [Settings]
    ERROR proccessing Ini settings. No further processing.
    ZTI ERROR - Non-zero return code by ZTIGather, rc =1
    Command completed, return code = 1
    FAILURE: 1: Running wscript.exe "X:\Deploy\Scripts\ZTIGather.wsf" /inifile:Bootstrap.ini

    In the TS [ Initialization - Gather local only ] is set to gather local data and process rules: customsettings.ini

    Customsettings.ini rule:

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default
    Properties=MyCustomProperty
    [Default]

  • Hello Anders,

    If it's not a typo in your post, there is a second "[Settings]" at the very bottom of your customsettings.ini.

  • Add this to the top of your bootstrap.ini:

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default

    Then regenerate the boot image.

  • Hi Dlofsted 

    Thanks,

    Must have been an "error 40" when copy/pasting the rules into the customsettings ;-) 

    But it still stops at the same point ? (was too fast to check it as answer (sorry))

  • Hello,

    I'm bumping this rather than starting a new thread as I am having the exact same problem, only the fixes mentioned have not corrected my issue.

    My BDD.log expresses the exact same error. My image also hangs at "Processing Rules"

    I am on a closed network, so it is challenging for my to transfer info over, I have to type it all in by hand to verify that I redact the sensitive information.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
