I am trying to use MDT 2010 Update 1 to migrate windows xp machines to windows 7. I set up the deployment share and imported my OS and applications that are needed. Then i created a TS (basically the standard client task sequence ) and left it as it is with no changes.
When i try to run now the litetouch.vbs from within the XP enviroment nothing happens and i have to boot from the cd to make it work. When i boot from the cd though when it comes to the stage that asks to specify whether to restore user data i have two options, one to not restore any data as this is not a replacement pc or the specify a network location.There is not refresh deployment option to it.
My question is do i do something wrong and i cannot capture any user data. I juct want to capture the user data,store them on the PC and then migrate to windows 7 and restore the user data.
What is the proper procedure to do that?
Check your customsettings.ini, for the following steps:
If these steps differ it might be these settings. You need to specify that the deploymenttype is a refresh or restage scenario.
If SkipUserData=YES the wizard will not ask you for the specific folder which need to be backed up.
Keep us posted, and if helpful please rate! Kind regards
When i try to run now the litetouch.vbs from within the XP enviroment nothing happens and i have to boot from the cd to make it work.Describe the steps (exactly) that you take to start the lite touch process from within XP. Explain what happens.
i type the ip address of the pc that has the MDT on it, go to deployment share\scripts and try to execute the litetouch.vbs. This does not work. Then i tried also to run the litetouch.vbs from within the USB drive that i have copied the content folder created with everything on it (OS,Applications, Drivers etc) and again nothing seems to work also. By nothing seems to work i mean that i don't see any new process running or a new window comes up or anything.
I can boot from the usb media and run the procedure but the problem is that i cant capture any user data and restore them as this as i understand must be run first from within the XP OS.
