Failed to Run Task Sequence for Operating System Installer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't know what I am doing wrong. The task is failing to install the Operating System. The error is saying that it's unable to locate the program files on a distribution point, but the content of the Distribution Point show that the operating system installer is in there.

    I've extracted the ISO onto a folder where CM is on. I've shared it, provided access.

     

    What log file should I be looking at?

  • smsts.log on the client running the TS. Note that when it says it can't find files in a TS, it could be any of the packages referenced, not just the OS.

    I can't find this smsts.log and I've looked at all these locations found on this server -- http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb932135.aspx

    I have a smstsvc.log in c:\ .. not the same?

  • How does the task sequence look like? How is it started? PXE? Software Center?

  • If started with PXE open a command prompt on the client.

    smsts.log should be located here: X:\%windir%\Temp\SMSTSLog

  • Mr Stokholm\Torsten is right, you need to find the smsts.log on the pc/laptop/device where you are trying to install the OS.

    If you are pushing the OS via PXE, you also need to ensure that you have the boot.wim files for both x86 and x64 on the DP.

    You can deploy these out via the console.
