Deploy Windows 7

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Your post is very helpful and im so close to getting this working, i know have my PC booteing to PXE but it seems to display the following every time

 

:angry:TFTP Download: smsboot\x64\abortpxe.com

 

And then aborts the pxe bootup. I have tried editing the registry key as described in other posts, cleared the last PXE advertisement and adding a membership rule to the collection. I have also restarted the WDS service. None of these are working and i'm getting very very annoyed by it all now :angry:

 

Any help would be massively appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi

I just setup my lab environment as follows;

 

Windows 2008 Server SP2 (domain controller, isolated network...not connected to the internet)

SCCM 2007 SP2, SQL 2005 SP3, WSUS 3.0 SP2 (also on the same server)

Windows XP Pro SP2

Windows Vista Bus SP2

 

As far as I can tell, it is a fully functional SCCM environment.

 

I am going through the "Build and Capture" part of Windows 7 deployment and I am stuck at the "Browse and pick your Config Client Installation from definition"....when I click "browse" I do not see and "Client Installation" package.

What am I missing, any help is appreciated......

 

regards

Do you have config mgr client package ? if not ,please create new package.

 

That was it...thanks Eswar

Now I am at the PXE boot step.

My Server is not DHCP....all the clients and server have static IP addresses. I have added the "ConfigMgr PXE service point" role on the SCCM server but when I reboot a client PC to PXE boot I get the following at DOS prompt

 

"Client MAC Address xx xx xx xx xx xx"

"DHCP .......|"

 

then after 15-20 seconds I get this

 

"PXE-E51: No DHCP or proxyDHCP offers were received"

"PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent"

 

thanks

Well, I did not want to setup DHCP on my Server 2008 but I guess there is no other option. I just configured the 66 and 67 Scope option and client is at least getting the IP address (at PXE boot).....now it is at the "TFTP...." prompt....lets see how that goes

 

thanks

Hi

 

I was able to fix the PXE issue (I needed to add/configure the WDS role on server 2008 and couple of other things like add the computer account to the collection, update the distribution point etc)

 

Now I am stuck at the "Running action: Setup Windows and ConfigMgr..." (which is right after the C: drive gets formatted). I am getting the following error:

 

Task Sequence: Build and Capture Win 7 has failed with the error code 0x80004005........

 

I looked at the task sequence (in the Config Mgr Console) and did not see anything that could cause this. However I do not have any drivers added in the "Drivers" and "Driver Packages" nodes in SCCM. I am not sure if that is what is causing the error or not. The reference computer is IBM Lenovo ThinkCentre m55p.

 

Any help is appreciated...

Are you running the TS on a virtual MAchine or Physical machine? if it is on physical machine,make sure you have NIC drivers avilable.please Post the smsts.log to to get more information.Also,you can monitor the status of the particular TS advertisement with report ID :144 (i.e http://prodscm/SMSRe...vertID=KBS20007) You need to replace the ADV ID (KBS20007) here.

Hi

It is a physical machine.....and I just added the NIC drivers in "Drivers" node of SCCM and have not tried the Image capture yet. I am assuming that smsts.log file is going to be on the client PC. If correct then I will have to use some utility like BartPE to access the C: drive since the there is no OS on the PC.

 

I am getting "Server error in application Default Website/SMSReporting_SiteCode) so that is why I cannot look at the reports but I did find some errors (posted below) in the Advertisement Status:

if you leave the Product key blank in the Task Sequence does it work then ?

 

Thanks anyweb

By removing the product key I was able get as far as "Capture the reference computer" and then I got ".....unable to capture 0x8007000g error....more detail is below....

 

I rebooted the computer thinking it would try the capture again but it did not, I got the "Windows 7 Professional" window with "Country or region, Time and currency....." window. The \\sccmtest1\pkgs share has full share permissions (and Security Permissions) for the domain\administrator account and Everyone Read. I added domain\administrator account when I setup the Capture and Deploy TS.

 

So, question is at this point how do i capture the WIM file......thanks

 

BTW, from which error code (from my previous post) did you find out that I was using a product key?

If you haven't enabled F8 support do so by ( Clicking here )

 

Then press f8 to bring up your command prompt

see if you can ping your server?

by your logs is is returning a host not found which looks more like a dns issue.

 

CLibSMSMessageWinHttpTransport::Send: URL: SCCMTEST1.TEST.COM:87 CCM_POST /ccm_system/request

Error. Received 0x80072ee7 from WinHttpSendRequest.

unknown host (gethostbyname failed)

 

 

check that is working...

also, i suggest disabling NAP in your lab until you get it working

I am able to ping the server SCCMTEST1 (when in F8)

When I try to use this command;

net use h: \\sccmtest1\pkgs

it prompts for username and password, I think it should not prompt for credentials (although after I provide the credentials it maps the drive).

I checked my Task Sequence and I have the correct user name (test.com\administrator and I re-typed the password like several times).

So what is confusing to me is that from the start of this Build & Capture process, it connects to the server, gets the Task Sequence, gets boot image, gets Windows 7 OS files, installs the config manager client using the same credentials.....but fails right at "Capture" and the problem seems to be the user credentials. :angry:

I found what the problem was.

 

In the "Build and Capture Task Sequence" under the "Capture the Reference Machine", the Destinatation had the correct path but I did not include the file name like "capture.wim".....I was under the impression that the file will be created during the Capture process....but I was wrong.....anyhow I have a capture.wim file and now I am moving to the next section "Deploy....."

 

thanks for all your help guys

Step 8. PXE boot the newly added Windows 7 client

 

finally it will reboot again and start the computer with your sysprepped settings

 

post-1-12510175927426_thumb.jpg

 

and the Build and Capture is now complete

 

post-1-12510176024174_thumb.jpg

 

Is it possible to add after the image capture that the machine will do a "legal" shutdown? I mean, a run command line with "shutdown -s" will produce an error, since the TS will be aborted by the shutdown. Is it possible to make a shutdown that doesn't produce an error as the last step in the TS?

 

I want this option because we're doing auto-generating images on VMware machines, and want them to power automatically (shutdown) of after a image capture, and not restart into the new windows installation. This is because when we want to auto-generate a new image, we can advertise with wake-on-lan, and run the sequence again with ease.

its part of the new waik for windows 7

 

that is also part of the RC so if you install sp2 rc youäll have the new WAIK

 

My SCCM doesn't have those boot options either and I integrated MDT 2010 with it. Here is a screenshot of my version. What am I missing?

I have started working with SCCM. I am facing a problem. After Starting the Task Sequence (Windows is Starting up) the screen shot is mentioned below, the system gets restarted. It is not moving to formatting disk, as per mentioned in this site.
