Errors when deploying custom Windows 10 wim from MDT RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to set up a deployment server for a custom wim of Windows 10 Ent x64 v1809. The Lite touch installation keeps failing. I'm using MDT v6.03 (Build 9600) and my Windows Server 2012 R2. I've tried multiple different solves so far including: 

    -stripping my task sequence down to the bare essentials

    -removing spaces from the name of my deployment share 

    -changing out my custom image for a stock windows iso

    -disabling the bios formatting step in the task sequence and using only UEFI

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • First double check your version of MDT, it should be 6.3.8456.1000

    Second I'd recommend test deploying to a Virtual Machine to eliminate that drivers are your issue.

    Here's a good step by step on building a reference image: Building a Windows 10 v1809 reference image using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT)

    Here are some ways to deal with drivers: MDT 2013 Lite Touch Driver Management

  • Ok, my MDT is version 6.3.8450.1000. 

    The link you provided says that it's a guide for Windows Server 2019 or 2016. Will there be any difference working with Server 2012 R2?

  • It's not a guide for Server 2019, it merely says "In this example I have a file server named MDT01, running Windows Server 2019". He's also being a little cheeky because that's a very new Server OS.
