  1. any estimate for how long creating the stand alone media takes? I have a task sequence to install Win7 (32bit) and deploy a few software packages, some drivers etc, typical stuff for zero touch deployment. i'd like to get this on USB or DVD (both bootable), trying to run the create task sequence wizard, go through the screens, it creates it, starts, completes the first few steps but then hangs on Processing 0%...
  2. I found these numbers very interesting and quite compelling until I read this part of the report: "A vulnerability is considered mitigated by removing administrator rights if the following sentence is located in the Security Bulletin’s Mitigating Factors section, ―Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights." I see that "could be" and it lends me to believe this all needs to be taken with a grain of salt. I'm not trying to claim running as local admin is a good idea, but this report is making some massive statistical claims based on a "could be" from Microsoft... I don't know about all that... thoughts?
  3. ok yes, I definitely need to add Win 7 nic drivers - is there some universal one? silly question i'm thinking but have to ask. I have a x64 desktop with nothing on it, it's a new model lenovo M series thinkcentre. I download one of the their nic drivers and there appear to be about 40 various versions of the driver in the EXE I got... not sure if there is some way of figuring this out without adding one at a time???
  4. I've had SCCM 2007 R2 up and running for a while, I upgraded to SP2 2 weeks ago or so. I suspect that the upgrade to SP2 my have killed my PXE SP... I just hadn't PXE booted in a while before or after the upgrade but now I need to and I'm going to need to a lot soon. PXE SP is on another server, all site servers are 2008 R2. I got a new 64-bit desktop I wanted to image so I tried adding a 64bit winpe boot image and all of a sudden I'm having all kinds of issues. Mainly, the WDS service will not start. When it tries I get this in the event log: "Faulting application name: svchost.exe_WDSServer, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc3c1 Faulting module name: wimgapi.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc365 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000000000032a8e Faulting process id: 0xdfc Faulting application start time: 0x01cacaf478397340 Faulting application path: C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe Faulting module path: C:\Program Files\Windows Imaging\wimgapi.dll Report Id: b8cddcca-36e7-11df-b620-005056bb3209" any ideas?
  5. Hey thanks for the quick reply, From other searching I now think my problem is related to lack of a NIC driver in the winpe boot image. One boot image which I've used in the past successfully has a driver, now I'm trying to PXE boot on 64bit hardware and the 64bit boot winpe image does not have a NIC driver included, and when the task sequence hangs, I hit F8 for command prompt support, type IPCONFIG and I get nothing, so yeah, I think it needs a NIC driver - but, I'm trying to add one and I keep getting an error: Failed to insert OSD binaries into the WIM file seen that before? I've tried a number of different drivers. Is the WIM file locked or something? is there some step I'm missing?
  6. Can you elaborate on this? I use a custom boot image, I've upgraded to SP2, what do I need to do to get it working again? I didn't add any drivers to the boot image so I have no drivers to re-import... should I just delete the boot image package and re-add it? I'm getting the exact same error in my log: Failed to download pxe variable file. Code(0x00000001) PxeGetPxeData failed with 0x80004005 thanks.
  7. When in Run Advertised Programs, for all of my OSD tasks, when I click Run I get a prompt immediately, which says, "You are about to upgrade the Operating System on this computer. Please close all open programs and save all open files before starting the upgrade." or something like that. I'd like to be able to customize that message. Is that possible? Any ideas?
