how can I deploy Windows XP SP3 using SCCM 2007 SP1 - Part 2

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to break down my XP build and capture into 2 parts. One the build and two the capture. This way I have a pause in between so I can load custom software/settings etc. My question is how do I separate the capture phase from the build phase.

Attached is the task process I believe the way it is supposed to be. My question is do I need to add the "restart in pe phase" to the capture phase? Is this the proper way to set this up? Any help would be appreciated.

 

Ok I have it setup like the 3rd box in the image above. I added this task sequence to a collection and rebooted the PC. But it did not work. Here are the errors i received.

Ok, so I changed the setting to this.

Cleared PXE and rebooted into PE environment. After PC rebooted here are my error logs.

So in this step I tried to disable the step of booting into PE environment

I can't be advertised for a PXE boot because the Deployment Tools need to run in a full OS... When I am doing something like this I use a non-mandatory advertisement of the Task Sequence so I can start it when I am ready.

 

So you're saying booting to PXE is the wrong way to go about this? If that is the case how do I force it to start? I've let the OS just sit there and it never begins the capture process. Should I set the advertisement to expire?

When it doesn't have a mandatory schedule, it automaticly checks the checkbox "Allow users to run the program independently of assignments". Or in other words it will appear in your advertised programs.

 

 

I assigned it as mandatory it should run automatically correct?

if its mandatory then it will kick off within its schedule (set it as soon as possible if you want it quickly), or do as Peter suggests and run it on demand by making it non-mandatory and apologies for the misleading advertisement screenshot, i'm obviously tired !

Which log file would I check if this is not occuring automatically?

Is there anything appearing at all in your client? Can it discover your site for example?

 

 

Yea my site is discovered it looks to be working normally.

 

The expiration checkbox, that means if it's after that date the client has to download the application as soon as possible correct? Not expiration from the perspective that it is no longer relevant?

I looked at your settings again and I saw in the General tab the setting Make this task sequence available to boot media and PXE... You shouldn't put that setting as you don't want that, because you have to start it yourself

 

Cool, thanks for the feedback. I'm assuming other than that everything looks good? What about the expiration? If I want it to run immediately I'm under the impression I'm supposed to set it to expire so the client thinks it needs to run it asap. Is this correct? Or should I remove that as well?

That only works with Software Updates and a deadline...

 

Take a look at these Technet links about Task Sequence & Advertisements: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680317.aspx & http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb694199.aspx

 

Thanks for the link. I got the two confused. With softwware updates when you set it to expire it means they need to be installed ASAP. Looks like with task sequence expire means no longer available. This is probably the cause of my problem.

 

Advertisement will expire

Advertises the task sequence to destination computers for a limited time only. Be default, this option is cleared.

Exactly! :)

 

Ok I got this advertisement to popup on the client PC configured like below and it did not work. Keep in mind I removed all of the workgroup and sysprep stuff because I'm simply trying to make a backup of my image(at this point). I'm not trying to make this for the purposes of redeployment just yet.

So then I decided perhaps it needed to load in WindowsPE. How else could it possibly capture the image right, if files are open? So I added this line.

This advertisement came up in windows it loaded some files and said it needed to boot into PE to finish. It booted to PE and then failed. The reason I did this was I thought to myself how can it capture the reference machine while windows is in use? I figured it needed the boot WindowsPE sequence in there. When I looked at my logs I had the following:

I just figured out why this did not work as I'm reading my own post lol! "Unable to find offline OS for validation.. Verify the Prepare Operating System action has run before this action" I removed this step! Ok so now I know why this failed. Hopefully this will work if I try again. But I still need to get my OS back! See below the saga continues...

 

 

 

Now I'm completely stuck as I spent hours building this image and now when I try to boot all I get is:

windows boot manager

 

windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the

 

cause. to fix the problem:

 

1. insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.

2. choose your language settings then click next

3. click repair your computer

 

if you do not have this disc contact yoru system adminsitrator or computer

 

manufacturer for assistance.

 

status: 0xc000000f

 

info the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

 

enter continue.

 

I believe what happened is when I put boot into PE into my task sequence it created some type of temporary partition so that it could load and made it bootable? Now I'm stuck with what looks to be a Vista boot manager, I dont ever remember seeing this screen in XP. It is greye colored. (Remember this is an XP imamge)

 

If there is any way to get back into my OS I would truely appreciate any advice.
