Cannot get MDT 2012 / SCCM 2012 UDI to work

Recommended Posts

I've tried everything I can think of to get this working. After doing quite a bit of research online it looks like everyone has their own way of doing the entire process of customizing, capturing, and deploying Windows 7. As it stands, I've integrated MDT 2012 with my current SCCM 2012 (using this guide) and have tried a couple of the build, capture deploy methods I've found online but cannot for the life of me get the SCCM 2012 / MDT 2012 User Driven Installation to work. I can however get the SCCM 2012 Zero Touch Installation to work without a hitch using the same wim so I'm sure it has something to do with the UDI TS.


Basically, I've built a custom Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 x86 reference machine with all applications and customization needed and then captured the image using SCCM 2012 Capture Media (using this guide). It creates a wim file with two images, 1-1 is the 100 MB System Partition, 2-2 is the Windows Install. So in any of my deployment task sequences I tell it to lay down the 2-2 image. Also the Network Access Account has been created and have verified that it has Full Permission to the content locations.


Next I followed guides 16, 17 and 18to integrate MDT 2012 with SCCM 2012 and to deploy a UDI. At first I found that it was creating two partitions a (C:) BDEDrive and (D:) OSDrive and was trying to apply the image to the D: drive. So I added DoNotCreateExtraPartition=YES to the CustomSettings.ini file, removed the BDEDrive 512 MB volume from the Format and Partition Disk section of the task sequence and set the OSDisk (Primary) as the boot partition. Now it still fails, any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I've attached the most recent SMTS.log below.
