Repeated WinPE ERROR_ADVANCED_INSTALLER_FAILED 0x80073713 Deploying Win7x64 with MDT 2013 Update 1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • As a newbie to MDT, I am trying to craft a better deployment solution than the Acronis Snap Deploy we currently have. I'm using MDT 2013 U1 and sticking only with USB media until the bugs are ironed out, with the goal of using WDS and possibly SCCM in the future. The machines being deployed to are Lenovo ThinkCentre M79 desktops with the official Lenovo drivers download in .CAB files (with AMD A8 CPUs/APUs).

    I've tried to save time by initially relying on MDT to intelligently inject the correct drivers and Windows Updates during the image deployment; the Update packages and OOB drivers have been added to the deployment share. The deployment succeeds but neither the updates nor the drivers ever successfully inject into the image.

    Next, I moved to manually injecting the Updates into the image using DISM, using the WSUS Offline 10.0.2 tool to grab all relevant updates for Windows 7 x64 SP1. There's also a local WSUS server that I have used in lieu of using DISM image injection, but the results are the same: the updates inject fine, however the deployment continually fails with error 0x80073713 right at the tail end of the WinPE device setup (after the partitioning, imaging and first reboot), with Setup Applying System Settings appearing on-screen.

    I've tinkered with multiple settings in the task sequence to no avail, from removing all Inject Driver references from Preinstall and Postinstall phases, to recreating the boot images on the Share without any Lenovo drivers being injected, to crafting the OOB driver folder structure so I can refer to it with %make%\%model% variables in the customsettings.ini file (the subject of a different post entirely). UEFI and legacy BIOS USB boot options don't matter and different (new) USB drives don't make a difference. The machine is placed in a boot loop and never cleanly exists the deployment process.

    Below are snippets of the error logs from the most recent failed deployment. There are many references to .Net 4.0 missing, even though it was present in the WinPE boot image at the time. Are they in reference to .NET 4 updates that are killing it?:

    There is obviously something fundamental that I am missing, perhaps with the update selection. Searches through these forums and others haven't found any instances that match my circumstances. Perhaps my task sequence is wrong or an update is killing the Advanced Installer? I am eager to learn and am open to any suggestions about how I can move forward.

    Let me know if you would like additional details.

    Thanks in advance!

  • The best way to do drivers is using Johan's Total Control method.

  • Thanks for taking time out of your day to reply!

    Unfortunately, I have rebuilt and restructured my OOB Drivers folders and task sequences for both WinPE 5 and Win7x64 multiple times following Johan's guidelines without any success. I've tried specifying DriverGroup001 in the Task Sequence Preinstall "Set Task Sequence Variable" (and alternatively the CustomSettings.ini for the boot media) to Windows7x64\%Model% following his suggestions and still have failures. My driver folder structure is based off the results of wmic computersystem get manufacturer,model for the deployment systems:

    1. Windows7x64
    2. LENOVO
    3. 10CV002US      (the specific model number)

    The selection profile chooses drivers from this folder specifically and the TS variable *should* be able to find it (?). Making the TS variable read Windows7x64\%Make%\%Model% as suggested on some other blogs also returns a failed result.

    I just tried another deployment with everything new (winpe.wim, fresh extracted ISO, fresh default task sequence with Total Control driver modifications, fresh drivers from Lenovo, etc.) and still failed... :(

    Would you have any further suggestions?

    P.S.: I've also posted this problem over in the Lenovo MDT forums without any responses.

  • I honestly don't know the answer.  Have you tried installing with zero drivers?

  • No worries, Ty, it's baffling to others I've shown it to as well. I determined that it's actually an issue with some Windows Updates causing the issue; I've done both manual DISM injection and pulls from a domain WSUS server with the same results. Running the deployment with drivers and without any updates results in success, though it's definitely not ideal.

    Out of frustration, I'm moving on to running a a sysprep and capture TS against a created reference machine. There's been some hiccups but nothing near the scope of this problem.

  • You can exclude the update/s causing the issue in customsettings.ini

    Similar to:

    WUMU_ExcludeKB001=123456
