Hello WIndows-Noob Community,
I'll first start by saying what a great site! I have found so many answers on this sit over the last year and a half! WIth that being said, I have combed these forums (and others) for the last 2 1/2 days trying to find an answer to my problem, unfortunately to no avail. About my issue and things I have done to resolve it:
SCCM 2007 SP2
Windows 7 Deployments
Boot Media wtih integrated NIC drivers and Command Support enabled
I have had my SCCM server up and running for almost 2 years now and it has been running smoothly once all was initially configured (a lot of help from this site!!). Starting sometime at the end of last week/beginning of this week, my Task Sequences are no longer working. I boot wtih my boot media, select my TS, it goes out and downloads my boot image, comes up and says "Ready to Start, Remove the CD and do not boot from CD. Click Finish to start the Task Sequence". I press remove the CD, press Finish and the system restarts.. After restart, WinPE comes up, partitions and formats my disks and then gets to Applying Operating System. After about 3-4 minutes of sitting at the half way point, it errors out wtih "Task Sequence: Windows 7 has failed with the error code (0x80070002)..."
When I attempt to press F8 at this point, nothing happens. My CMD window does not open. I have researched this error all over the internet and this error mostly eludes to no NAA set, an invalid NAA or "the file specified cannot be found".
Wondering why I couldn't press F8 at this point because I know I have "enable command support" selected, I reboot the PC back to the boot media up to where I can select my Network Adapater. Pressing F8 here works with the exact same boot media?!?!?! I see that I have an IP and can ping my SCCM/DP (one in the same), I can map to my DP share using my NAA that I have set. I have checked the Share Permissions as well as the Security Permissions set on my DP Share and have all appropriate groups as well as added my NAA just for S&G. Everything points to me being able to see my SCCM/DP and my share.
I have completely removed all files associated with this TS, ensured they were no longer on the DP then recreated them all. I ensured that everything was pushed to the DP and that the "messages" for the Boot Image, Operating System Image and Package for the SCCM Client all indicated a successful install. I also went to the SMSPKGD$ and ensured everything was there. Sad to say....I am still stuck in the exact same spot. What's even worse, is I have no SMSTS.LOG file to review or share, due to the fact that F8 does not appear to work after the system reboots itself.
Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!
