unattended.xml empty on hp (except on random deployments) RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are currently making the move to Windows 10 with MDT 2013 update 2 and ADK for Windows 10 1511, and it has been a bumpy road.

    We are currently able to deploy on all machines... except our hp compaq 8200 elite SFF. it crashes with the error "Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file". The setupact.log shows it found the file, but could not deserialize it. Opening Windows\Panther\Unattended.xml shows an empty file while "preparing" Windows (so after first reboot).

    This file is correct on other machines or "once upon a time" when the HP machines deploy like we want to (which is 1 in 20 times or so) in that phase.

    I currently have no idea what the issue is, any advice?
