Recommended Posts

yes add it manually if it is already in SCCM's database, otherwise import it using computer association or use the unknown computers collection

I have the same media en_windows_7_enterprise_x64_dvd_x15-70749.iso, but mine doesn't have a os directory inside sources. I downloaded the enterprise Windows 7 media from my msdn subscription.

 

What should I use for my operating system install package?

copy the contents of the Windows 7 DVD or ISO to your share, the share in my example was \sources\os....

 

it's not a directory structure on the DVD itself, but a share on the ConfigMgr server

My mistake, thanks for the explanation.

Ok I just upgraded to SP2, everything was working great on SP1 R2. Now I'm trying to deploy Win7 enterprise x64 like everybody (I think) but the thing isn't working.

 

I can boot with pxe, I fill in the pxe password, it starts to partition the disk, the it says 'Setup windows and Configmgr' (like always) with the win7 background and then it fails.

It's not a driver problem I think, otherwise it had been rebooting. I think there is some authority or update of package or something missing. I already updated the sccm client package.

 

This is the log

"downloaded WDSNPB

Appreciate any advice\assistance

 

thanks!

does this help ?

 

and I quote:-

 

installed MDT 2010 update 1 and connected it to SCCM. this allow me to use the "install language pack offline" task sequence step that does not exist in SCCM. I've implemented the "user driven installation" fonctionnality of MDT which allows you to run an installation wizard and let you chose the user language interface.

 

for information about connecting MDT to SCCM and implementing UDI (user driven installation), download and read the MDT help file : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=3bd8561f-77ac-4400-a0c1-fe871c461a89&displaylang=en&tm

 

But :

 

this default procedure does not install language pack during the deployment. For SCCM the language pack has to be already present in your master (it's a little bit complicated because installed language pack make your master huge :-) ).

 

so i've customized the UDI task sequence for injected the selected language pack just after applied the operating system.

 

after the "apply operating system" step i've added one "BDD_InstallLanguagePacksOffline" step for each language pack i need to use. (in our case we have about 25 language packs ... so 25 steps).

 

in the UDI Wizard launched during the computer deployment, you can select the user language interface. The information is stored in a variable : UILanguage

 

So in order to install the right language pack, for each step added, you need to apply a condition based on the UILanguage value.

 

Example :

 

I started a computer deployment and selected the following user language : "FRENCH". the value of the task sequence variable is now "fr-FR"

 

in your task sequence, for the french "BDD_InstallLanguagePacksOffline" steo, you have applied tha following condition :

 

* Task Sequence Variable UILanguage equals "fr-FR"

 

At the end, your computer is deployed with the correct language : MISSION COMPLETE !

A friend has advised me to do this:

 

 

Using mdt, you can install the language pack to the existing win 7 image. This way you don’t have to create a new image file of win 7.

 

Create a software package for the language pack and then put it into the TS with MDT integration.

 

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766010(WS.10).aspx

 

Since I am new to SCCM and MDT, is there a guide here that I can refer to in order to accomplish this?

 

I also saw this http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/1660-customising-windows-7-deployments-part-1/ but I am not sure how I can do the same in SCCM (MDT integrated).

 

If someone can just guide me on how can I add the LPKSETUP command in the MDT TS, I shall be thankful. Or if there is any other way.

 

Regards!

Not sure if I am on the right track. There is already an English image of Windows 7 on the SCCM. The client wants another image in French for some of their new computers. This SCCM was setup by a outsourced preerson who is no longer working with them. Any elaboration on this will be great.

 

Regards!

Ok I think I am starting to understand after trying it in a lab. Now instead of using a command line for my package, can I just create a package in ConfigMgr containing the French language pack? Then I can add "Install Language Packs Offline" step to the TS.

 

Am I right? If not can you please advise how can I use this command line in the TS?

 

Also will this give the user an option to select their default language or Can I advertise the English version to one collection and French to another?

 

 

Thanks for your patience!

I am new to Windows 7 deployments using SCCM. I am trying to set up the first instance of an image that is to be captured from a master workstation. In this step listed above:

 

press browse and choose your boot image, in this case pick X64 Windows PE boot environment for SCCM 6.1.7100.0 en-US.

 

I do not have the x86 or x64 Windows PE boot environment for SCCM 6.1.7100.0 en-US as was shown in the screenshot boot images as shown in the instructions. Was this added in and how do I create a boot image specifically for use with SCCM? I found the instructions great and pictures are worth a 1000 words. All that I have avalible is the default x86 or x64 Windows PE boot environment 6.1.7100.0 en-US. When I liik at the properties for the two boot images, my version however is 6.1.7600.16385 with the site name and 0001 (this is the x86 boot image) and one for the site name and 0002 (this is the x 64 boot image. Also I cannot attach a screenshot of an image to show what I see.

Hi there,

 

I hope this thread is still being watched...

 

I need some help capturing a WIM from a reference machine.

 

I've just gone through the process of deploying a basic W7 SP1 ENT install.wim to our reference machine so we can capture and build a fresh W7 SP1 deployment image.

 

I've followed all the instructions here (along with copying and modifying an existing task list) and got to the point where our software has installed (Office2010) and then it moves on to capture the reference machine.

 

The machine then reboots up into windows but doesn't appear to capture and copy the WIM into the relevant folder on the network.

 

Any ideas? I'm really stuck now...

 

SMSTS log attached...

 

Hope someone can shed some light for me..

 

Thanks,

 

Chris.

Hi, and thanks for these instructions. I'm all new to this and have hit a stumbling point. I'm doing the build and capture which seems to be going well up until the point where sysprep should run. The PC boots up at the stage "Setup is preparing your computer for first use". However, after this the PC goes to the login prompt as opposed to the screen where I should be selecting Country/Language etc. The boot.wim I used was actually created using this guide - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744533(WS.10).aspx.

 

Can you help?

Yes I am trying to deploy windows 7.

 

I tried your DHCP options from

http://www.windows-n...__958

 

Now I am getting error abortpxe.com

 

as attached screenshot

 

 

Also I now saw weird action of my SCCM server After importing the computer details the PC is not adding to the specified Collection.

 

instead it is showing in the All Systems collection.

 

Why this happens,

 

I am really tired of this sccm behavior......

 

I have the exact same problem!!

Plus when i advertise the task sequence on the client machines.nothing happens on the machines.

The task sequence may run on one of them after several hours.On other machines, nothing ever happens!!??

why is this?? can anyone help??

that means unsupported, so you are doing something in windows that should be done in winpe or vice versa, i'll take a look at the log to confirm...i had a quick look at your log and didn't see any reference to the 0000032 failure, can you double check there's no more smsts*.log files ?

Hi there you put together some great walkthtoughs. I am at the point where you PX boot the machine. http://www.windows-n...loy-windows-7/. I have a PXE service point set up and an x86 an x64 win PE boot image configured for win 7 and added to the ditrabution point and and the distibution point has been updated. My DHCP server for deployments is on the same server as SCCM. On SCCM I have PXE options 066 and the value is the fqdn of my SCCM server, 067 and the value is blank I do not know what to put here, and 060 and its value is PXEClient. I get an ip address and then get the PXE E55 ProxyDHCP No reply to request on port 4011. The SCCM server is Server 2008R2 Standard SP1 cnfgmgr version 4.00.6487.2000. The windows Firewall disabled. SCCM and the host I am PXE booting are on the same subnet with no firewalls between them. I saw your troubleshooting steps http://www.windows-n..._1354#entry1354 but I cannot get to the point where I can troubleshoot because I cannot get the SCCM screen to load. I am new to automated deployments and have been following your walkthroughs and your posts on the windows noob message boards. They are outstanding. I am at a loos on how to resolve this issue. I saw some articles on google about removings the pxe service point and WDS and readding WDS and the service point but I am not sure if this is the correct solution or how to remove the PXE service point. Any help or feedback on these issueswould be helpful and greatly appreciated.
