  1. Morning all, I’ve been looking at an issue for the last couple of days that has me somewhat confused. I know there have been other posts regarding this but I’ve not yet seen a definitive reason behind it… We have a small number of systems in the environment that have two physical drives for example a 75GB and a 300GB drive, meaning the preferred setup would be: Disk 0 (75GB) 200 MB: System reserved 50GB: OSDisk 24GB: Data Partition Disk 1 (300GB) 300GB: Extra Can someone please explain why in Win PE these disk randomly swap between Disk 0 and Disk 1?? I need to ensure that in a system refresh scenario these desktops only ever have W7 Enterprise installed to Disk 0 (in the example above) thus leaving Disk 1 alone. We are using the OSPart task sequence variable at the apply OS Phase so I am going to try to use the following script that I believe Niall had a hand in creating in order to target the current partition that has Windows installed: <job id="GetDriveletter"> <script language="VBScript" src="..\ZTIUtility.vbs"/> <script language="VBScript"> dim driveSearch Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set colDrives = objFSO.Drives For Each objDrive in colDrives driveSearch = objDrive.DriveLetter & ":\\Windows\\explorer.exe" strComputer = "." Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _ & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") Set colFiles = _ objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * From CIM_DataFile Where Name = '" & driveSearch & "'") If colFiles.Count < 1 Then Else oEnvironment.Item("OSPART") = objDrive.DriveLetter & ":" End If Next </script> </job> I would still very much like some insight as to why the Disk numbers change at what seems to be random intervals….is it a hardware issue i.e. symptom of using SATA drives, or that OSD prefers the larger drive.... Thanks. Rich.
  2. Hi Guys, Happy New Year. Wanted to know if anyone knows best way to configure Dual Monitor settings during Win7 OSD deployment in SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 MDT integrated. I know you can edit the unattended.xml file ( can this be done for two monitors and setting one as main ?). Is there somewhere where the settings are applied in registry that i can export and import at the end of the TS before the final reboot. Basically we have a few Workstations that use dual monitors and the displays need to be configured a certain way, was hoping there was a way to configure this during TS rather than the engineer having to manually configure once complete. any help would be appreciated. Thank you
  3. Is there any possible solution to deploy Win 7 image to iMAC PCs using SCCM 2012. Currently we are using boot camp to create partition and then deploying Windows using Deployment Studio. We have SCCM for the updates and software deployment but would like to use it for OS imaging as well. I have gone through a lot of documentations online but still no luck. iMac machine are with 2 partitioning 900GB and 10GB. On SCCM side till now I have captured media and created WIM file. Now I am stuck with the deployment and cant get my head around. I really need someone to list the steps on how to make it work. Thanks, DS
  4. Hello! I have been having an issue trying to get the correct storage drivers for a Dell T7400. I have used the Dell WinPE driver packs and the drivers that are listed on the Dell website. Has anyone been able to successfully pxe deploy this model? Every driver I have tried so far does not enable the hard drive to be seen in WinPE. I also have a T7500 and T7600 that is similar hardware that works. Could all the different versions of the drivers I have included conflict with each other? Any help would be appreciated.
  5. I have manually installed Win7 on a pc in order to capture the image. I have disjoined from the domain, logged in as local admin, stopped the SMS Host agent service. I created a USB capture media, and started the process. I get to the point where the wizard starts, I enter the name of the .wim and all the other information. When I click finish, nothing happens. It never gets to the part where it starts to capture the image. What am I missing? What logs can I view to see the imaging process?

    BitLocker GPO

    Hi, this is my 1st post, and I'm a complete noob to SCCM and Bitlocker. I'm currently using Server 2008 R2, with SCCM 2012 SP1. I've followed various guides online for deploying BitLocker, and have managed to do so successfully....but, In many guides, when created the GPO on the DC for BitLocker, I don't have the option for selecting 'used space only' or 'full disk encryption' Is this option only available with Win8 or Server 2012? I have also read up on using MBAM with SCCM, but I cannot find where you download this from. Any help would be much appreciated. thanks, mdc111
  7. We have just received a stack of z420 workstations. I'm trying to deploy our existing image to these however it is failing. This is a copy of the logs I get: The task sequence execution engine failed executing the action (Partition Disk) in the group (Install Operating System) with the error code 2147943568 Action output: ==============================[ OSDDiskPart.exe ]============================== Command line: "osddiskpart.exe" Succeeded loading resource DLL 'X:\sms\bin\x64\1033\TSRES.DLL' FALSE, HRESULT=80070490 (e:\nts_sms_fre\sms\framework\tscore\diskutils.cpp,1386) CDisk::GetDiskSize(oDisk.getIndex(), cbDiskSize), HRESULT=80070490 (e:\nts_sms_fre\sms\client\osdeployment\osddiskpart\main.cpp,691) LoadDiskConfiguration(oDisk), HRESULT=80070490 (e:\nts_sms_fre\sms\client\osdeployment\osddiskpart\main.cpp,1412) Invalid disk number specified: 0 Invalid configuration specified. Please ensure that the task sequence is properly configured. OSDDiskPart.exe failed: 0x80070490. The operating system reported error 2147943568: Element not found. and The task sequence execution engine failed execution of a task sequence. The operating system reported error 2147943568: Element not found. What would I need to look at in this case to resolve this? Advice? steps? etc.
  8. We're installing a new SCCM 2012 instance in our environment, and learned that we cannot get Endpoint Protection definition files to download if the workstation has a version of the Windows Update Agent that is too old. We're trying to use a query based rule to create a collection of workstations that don't have the latest version of the WUA so that we can rectify those machines before we install SCEP and the definitions get out of date. So, we've created our "Managed Clients" collection and have a second collection that uses that as a parent collection along with the following query: select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID, SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType, SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name, SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier, SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup, SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_WINDOWSUPDATEAGENTVERSION on SMS_G_System_WINDOWSUPDATEAGENTVERSION.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_WINDOWSUPDATEAGENTVERSION.Version like "%7.4.7600.256%" to identify those that are up to date, and a 'NOT LIKE' version to identify those that are out of date. However, neither device collection has any workstations. And when we query the SQL database at the backend of our site, it doesn't appear as though any workstations are reporting this data, even though both Hardware & Software inventories are turned on in the default client policy (and not overridden anywhere else). Any thoughts on why the WUA Version isn't being reported, or another way to end-around this issue and prevent our SCEP definition files from getting out of date before we know we have a problem?
  9. Hi everybody, Here is My scenario, I have WDS running on a Server 2008 R2 Machine, and have been succesfully imaging XP machines for a while now. I am trying to setup a Windows 7 amd64 image on it, and it doesn't appear to like my unattend.xml, ie, it doesn't get the language options that I have set in the unattend,.xml, it doesn't automatically load the right image off WDS, which is also specified in the unattend.xml etc. The thing that I think may be causing the problem is that the Boot image I am using in WDS is the x86 boot image that we have been using to image the XP machines. Do I need to create an amd64 boot image for it to recognise the amd64 commands in the unattend.xml? The Windows 7 image itself works fine, but for simplicity sake, because I'm going to have to do over 100 of these in the coming months, I would prefer to make it and unattended installation. This has been driving me nuts the last couple of days. Edit, here is my WDSclientunattend.xml <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <DiskConfiguration> <Disk wcm:action="modify"> <ModifyPartitions> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="modify"> <Active>true</Active> <Extend>false</Extend> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>SysVol1</Label> <Order>1</Order> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> </ModifyPartitions> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk> </Disk> <WillShowUI>onerror</WillShowUI> </DiskConfiguration> <WindowsDeploymentServices> <ImageSelection> <InstallImage> <Filename>XT3_WIM.wim</Filename> <ImageGroup>Consultant_Laptop</ImageGroup> <ImageName>XT3_WIM</ImageName> </InstallImage> <InstallTo> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </InstallTo> </ImageSelection> <Login> <Credentials> <Domain>Domain.com</Domain> <Password>Password</Password> <Username>Username</Username> </Credentials> </Login> </WindowsDeploymentServices> </component> </settings> </unattend> -Mark
  10. Hi, Having a bit of a problem refreshing a Win7 install by advert. I am trying to setup a TS that I can advertise to a machine that will basically restart the PC in PE environment, format the disk and install and OS. My TS is in the format of: Restart in Windows PE Format and Partition Disk Apply Operating System Apply Windows Settings Apply Network Settings Apply Driver Package Setup Operating System Setup windows and ConfigMgr Install Updates Restart Computer I’ve set the advert to go out at 11pm and the machine will pick it up. However, only thing that happens is the machine reboots, formats the disk and fails there. Anyone know what I’m missing or indeed if this is possible to do? Thanks for reading. Rob
