Problems deploying Windows 8.1 Enterprise through WDS (Server 2008 R2) RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're currently running WDS in our environment and have no issues deploying Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8.

    We're currently trying to deploy Windows 8.1 and it was built in the same way as Windows 8 but we keep running into an issue where it gets to the OS install and then fails partway through.  I've rebuilt everything from scratch, copied the exact settings from Windows 8, but it still fails at the same place.  The error is generic and I'm not very knowledgeable in it since I wasn't the one that built it.

    Could someone here take a look at the smsts.log and maybe give me a hint as to how to fix this?

    Thanks for your help.

    This is only the last part since I was foiled by the character limit of this box.
