MDT 2013, deployed from disk partition? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to launch the deployment from a disk partition (D :)

    If I throw from a DVD or USB I have no problem

    How did you manage to do it from a partition?

    What settings do I need?

    Thank you very much!

  • So this is actually pretty easy to do, MDT can sense if the deployroot and osdisk are the same.  What you need to do is ensure that your partition is active in diskpart, and that you copy the media ISO in its entirety to the partition.  On reboot it will boot to the MDT sequence and apply as you have configured.   You can also launch MDT manually from that partition by launching the litetouch.wsf script located under .\Deploy\Scripts\. Hope this helps.

    I have a Standard template, I can copy it directly to a LTIoem? Or I have to make it new?

    Thanks!

    If I copy all the media folder \ Content (Boot, Deploy and Bootmgr) in D (Partition 2), then change the active partition "D", restart and should work? Then return to "C" active partition?

    Thanks!

    Edit:

    I have done and have not worked for me. Error message when restart: NTLDR is missing

  • That's a boot issue -- storage driver issue, bios boot mode issue, files not in the right place (root should have .\boot , .\deploy, .\efi ... etc. What are you trying to accomplish here?

  • Use the LTIOEM task sequence template.

    I want to make a deployment from the "D" partition the hard disk. The idea is to launch a cmd or powershell so that when you restart the computer, boot from the partition where the image and perform deployment.

    Any idea to do so?

    Thank You!

    This task sequence is the original:

    In the OEM task sequence appears:

    I have to copy of the original task sequence starting from "Preinstall" after "Stage Media" in the OEM task sequence?

    How do I restart the OEM partition from a script?

    Is there a manual task sequence settings oem?

    Thank You!
