MDT 2013 - update deployment error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded our volume license iso of windows 7 from Microsoft then extracted it using 7 zip. In MDT, created a new windows 7 capture under operating system. Next I created a task sequence. When I go to update the MDT 2013 deployment share I get error below. The windows 7 version was 64 bit.

    Server is fully patched and is running Microsoft Server 2012 R2.  Can you advise what I can do to get around this error below so I can start to evaluate MDT.

    === Making sure the deployment share has the latest x86 tools ===

    === Processing LiteTouchPE (x86) boot image ===

    Building requested boot image profile.

  • Do you have multiple versions of the ADK installed and have you rebooted since installing the ADK?

    Many questions such as where do I find logs and what logs are interesting are found in: MDT TechNet Forum - FAQ & Getting Started Guide Please take the time to read it. Also if you don't post logs your problem won't be easily solved.
