Can't boot on LiteTouchPE_x64.wim on WDS (MDT 2013 Update 1) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    I'm trying to setup new MDT environment (MDT 2013 Update 1) but I'm having some trouble in the process.

    What I did and should be OK :

    • Create a new blank server (Windows Server 2012 R2)
    • Transfer backups I made from my server where there is MDT 2013 (deployment shares) to my new server where is installed MDT 2013 Update 1
    • Edit Boostrap.ini files and other elements of configuration on the new server (such as UNC paths...)
    • Create a Lite Touch Windows PE WIM file matching with the deployment share we use to make the deployments
    • Deploy the Lite Touch Windows PE WIM file into my WDS server

    My problem :

    I try to make a deployment with a VM. I'm able to select the boot image I put into WDS but afterwards it's stuck on Windows logo.

    Thank you in advance for your help ;)

  • How much RAM did you assign to the VM? 1Gb or more? Is it perhaps set to 512Mb initially and dynamic RAM?

    Basically, make sure that you have enough RAM in the VM, set it to a minimum of 768 at boot time.

  • VM has 8 GB of RAM and 4 virtual processors.
