  • Error message "Windows SIM was unable to generate a catalog" or "Parameter count mismatch":

    Resolution: Generate the catalog file on a supported platform. For Microsoft Deployment Toolkit it is possible to mount the DeploymentShare from another computer with MDT and the AIK installed with the proper architecture to generate the catalog then it can be accessed by the original MDT server.

  • Just read this post for more information about this: Understanding Windows Image Files and Catalog Files

    Windows System Image Manager (Windows SIM) uses Windows image (.wim) files and catalog (.clg) files to display the available components and packages that can be added to an unattended answer file (Unattend.xml). Windows images and catalog files contain configurable settings that you can modify once the component or package is added to an answer file.

    And more information abaout images and catalog files also.
