  • Hi,

    I suggest we doing shift+f10, and type diskpart and lisk disk to see whether all HDD work as expected.

    If not, please check the driver for Storage.

    In addition, would you please let me know where did this image file come from, you captured yourself or got from installation disc.

    Keep post.

  • Hi,

    Regarding current situation, I suggest we turn on the client logging functionality, run the following command on the WDS server:

    WDSUTIL /Set-Server /WDSClientLogging /Enabled:Yes

    Then, you can find setup logs from the client computer by referring to following article, and see which driver failed to install.

    How to enable logging in Windows Deployment Services (WDS) in Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and in Windows Server 2012

    Then, we can try to integrate this driver in the captured image and try to deploy again.

    Keep post.

  • Has anyone been able to resolve this issue? We have new Dell OptiPlex 3020's and we're getting the following error when applying Windows 8.1 (using a Windows 8.1 boot.wim). We're able to apply Windows 7 to these machines with no issues (using a Windows 7 boot.wim).

    The following WDS Client has encountered Fatal Error:

  • I'm having the same issue, also with OptiPlex 3020s. I am trying to deploy a vanilla Windows 8.1 install WIM, along with Dell's 3020 driver CAB.

  • Hello, im getting the error when trying to deploy a clean 8.1 image to a hyper-v vm ( both gen 1 and 2 ) Using the 8.1 boot.wim found in the ISO. The iso is from dreamspark. I did the diskpart but the disk is seen just fine. What else could it be?

  • Just fixed this issue when attempting to WDS win10x64 Ent. to an Optiplex 780

    Make sure you disable all the drivers in your drivers folder and load the x64 Architecture to the boot image. Do this by right clicking on the boot image and load drivers - search for drivers and click Next until it is complete. Restart the WDS service and try again.

    Worked for me, hope it does for everyone else as well!
