Adding feature "Desktop Experience" with Powershell breaks Task Sequence

    Question

  • Hello everybody. I'm running into a problem when adding the feature "Desktop-Experience" with PowerShell (Add-WindowsFeature Desktop-Experience) on Server 2012 in a CM12 task sequence. Problem: Server boots twice and breaks the task sequence.

    Desktop Experience has three requirements: InkAndHandwritingServices, Server-Gui-Shell, Server-Media-Foundation. They are all installed on the server already. With Server 2008R2, if all requirements (they are not equal with the ones from Server 2012) are installed on the server, the server boots just ones when adding desktop experience. See here: https://mwesterink.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/configmgr-installing-desktop-experience-during-osd-breaks-the-task-sequence/

    With Server 2012, although all requirements are installed, the server boots twice, Config Mgr can't handle that and shows me the log in screen afterwards.

    Systems: Server 2012 Standard, CM12 SP1 CU2

    So my question: Has desktop experience any other requirements which I have to install?
