Windows 7 64Bit Capture Fails

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Has anybody seen this error before when capturing a windows 7 SP1 64bit image? It doesn't seem to make any difference if I run the task sequence on a Virtual machine or a physical machine

 

The logs dont say anything, unless im looking at the wrong one.... which could well be the case as still relativly new to SCCM

this error can happen if hardware is faulty...HDD etc.(the TS is unable to access the HDD)..but if it is happening on a Virtual Platform also then I'd say you can rule this out.....have you configured your Network Access Account?

 

Also take a look at this http://social.techne...8b-6895fa83275c

Hi,

 

I have checked the network access account and this is fine, i dont think its hard drive problems as the error arrives on a virtual machine and 2 different physical machines...

 

As far as I can see it downloads the install files, then goes to the "applying image" stage then the blue windows 7 setup wallpaper appears briefly and that is where it fails, I have attached the log.

 

Thank you for your advice so far :)

 

smsts.log - just looking at why its not picked the drivers up, would this likely be the problem?

Just right click on the boot.wim.....properties and drivers tab... this should give you a list of all drivers that have been added to them!

 

Dont forget to update the DPs afterwards in the event of injecting any new drivers to them

Sounds a bit strange. That never happened to me before. You might just recreate the boot wim, or double check that you applied the correct PE to your task sequence. If you have applied several optional task sequences to the same collection and boot your client with PXE, the PXE server will load a "random" PE out of these sequnces. In this case you have to apply a "reboot to assigned PE" as mandatory first step in your task sequence, to make sure the correct one will be used.

Just by the way. You are not trying to build and capture a 64 bit windows 7 with a 32 bit PE? Because that would not work at all.

Have you tried recreating your system installer again and a new build&capture TS?

If not I would use a new set of media files(use winRAR to extract them from the iso) and start over!

 

For a Hyper-v VM you should not need drivers. Also just double check the network access account by veryfying it to the location of your system installer directory when adding the account.

I would suggest only adding the network interface drivers to the boot image. There is no real harm in adding more drivers, but the larger the boot file, the longer the deployment. If you're not too converned about adding a few extra minutes to the deployment time, then it shouldn't matter. However, deploying to 1000+ PCs, adding 3 minutes to each - you've added 50 hours of build time across the organisation.

 

 

We have captured and deployed Windows 7 64-bit on both VM and physical hardware. The VMs are running VMWare.
