Create Task Sequence Media creates now 3 different iso images RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some reason the Create Sequence Media wizard started doing 3 instead of 1 iso image even when tested on older sequences where a single iso was the outcome. Not sure where to look for the cause of such situation. Can someone please help to track and fix that?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Stand-alone media includes the task sequence that automates the steps to install the OS, and all other required content. This content includes the boot image, OS image, and device drivers. Because the stand-alone media stores everything to deploy the OS, it requires more disk space than required for other types of media.

    Please select the media size to unlimited, this will keep only on ISO media.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in TechNet.

    1.May we know if you specify the capacity of the media (Media size) with small size when creating the task sequence media? If the capacity of the media is too small to store the entire content, it creates multiple files. Then you need to store the content on multiple CDs or DVDs. When it requires multiple media files, Configuration Manager adds a sequence number to the name of each output file that it creates. If so, please try a large or unlimited size media size.

    2.Please also help check the CreateTSMedia.log that records details for task sequence media creation.
    Refer to: Create task sequence media

    Thanks for your time.

    Best regards,
    Simon

  • I chose the regular DVD media size as always. The log actually mentions that the iso will be split but I have no idea where all the additional data came from to need 3 DVD size media. There must be some error just not sure how to track the cause. 

    Update: silly me must have had a bad day. I was selecting Stand-Alone rather than Bootable media...
