MDT 2013 U1 - InstallFromPath local drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • hey guys,

    I copy the wim file (windows10_xy.wim) with robocopy to the local System.

    without update 1:
    it was possible to set the InstallFromPath (local disk h: -> "h:\folder\windows10_xy.wim") and "Install Operating System" applied it from the local disk.

    with update 1:
    oEnvironment.Item("InstallFromPath") is overwritten by the xml value,...?? and it is installed over the network :|

    I need it from the local disk again, please help

  • Change the value in the XML, or even better, duplicate the <os> node (changing GUIDs) and edit the copy, then change the TS to apply the second OS which is in reality, the same one but with the path changed.

    Also remember and update OperatingSystemGroups.xml

  • hi Andrew,

    if I understand you correctly. this will only work with one wim file.

    [TS001] mdt default location: \\mdtserver\mdtshare\... Windows10_xy.wim

    [TS002] local h:\folder\windows10_xy.wim

    I forgot to say, that i need a random name for the wim file, i dont know the file names [aaa001.wim, bbb100.wim,....]  it must dynamically change the name.

    it is possible that one client system has more then 3 different wim files on his local filesystem.

  • I found the mistake. I'm sorry...

    @without update 1: I've completely forgotten that I changed the LTIApply.wsf

    Function GetSourcePath
    	'GetSourcePath = oUtility.SelectSingleNodeStringEx(oOS,"ImageFile", False)
    	'If Left(GetSourcePath, 1) = "." or GetSourcePath = "" then
    	'	If GetWDSServer <> "" then
    	'		GetSourcePath = "\\" & GetWDSServer & "\REMINST" & Mid(GetSourcePath, 2)
    	'	Else
    	'		GetSourcePath = oEnvironment.Item("DeployRoot") & Mid(GetSourcePath, 2)
    	'	End if
    	'End if
    	GetSourcePath = oEnvironment.Item("InstallFromPath")
    End function

    now itseems to be workingagain.
