MDT 2013 Update 2---Can't Complete Windows 7 32-bit OS Installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • After upgrading to ADK 10 and MDT 2013 Update 2, I'm having the hardest time getting my 32-bit OS to install. Once the deployment starts and it gets to the "Installing Operating System" part, it just stalls at 100%. I originally thought this was the case with my 64-bit OS, but after about 10 minutes or so at the above step, it eventually went on to complete the remainder of the install. However, I never got the FinalSummary window at the end. I'm really not sure what to do at this point.

  • Me either without logs. Can you post a link to your logs here?

  • It is good you linked the logs as opposed to posting them here.  I wouldn't look through the log without CMTrace anyway :)

    From your BDD.log:

  • So what does that mean? That was the log I pulled from the laptop that was giving me problems. Did I miss something?

  • That's exactly what I did in order to find the logs. So is there nothing in these logs that hints at what could be causing the deployment to stall at the Installing OS step?

  • The log says look for another BDD.log.

  • Alright. Let's try this again. I did some more searching and found this:

  • So the WIM gets applied alright but, for some reason when it applying the unattend.xml it hangs (as you have seen).  DISM.log might have something interesting or perhaps setupact.log

    Do you have any problems installing Windows 7 32 RTM instead of your custom images?   There might be some update that is making things problematic.  I don't know what update that might be.  You may have to get into contact with support.

  • Well after figuring out how to look at the logs, I did see something in there about Access Denied. And after doing some research, I saw that there was some new permission issues with MDT 2013 Update 2. I went in and fixed that, but now I'm getting the yellow-Final Summary, that says Successful, but yet it says that the connection to the Deployment Share couldn't be made. I'll have to pull the logs from that one.

  • It is probably not an issue.  If there is a retry to connect to the share that can happen.
