Trouble deploying Windows 8 using UEFI to HP Laptop

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Im a bit of a newbie to SCCM so hear goes;

 

I am trying to deploy Windows 8 64 bit to a HP 8470p laptop using UEFI. The build is failing on an error code of 80004001 or (0x80004001)

 

I have attached a screen shot of the task sequence editor that I am using at the bottom of the page.

 

When I search through the smsts.log file I am coming across the following error messages either in Red or Yellow

 

[system partition not set

[unable to locate a bootable volume. Attempting to make C:\ bootable.

 

Volume C:\ has an NTFS filesystem

 

Marking partitions active is only supported for MBR disks.

 

Unable to activate partition (0x80004001)

 

Failed to make volume C:\ bootable. Code 0x80004001

 

Failed to make volume C:\ bootable. Please ensure that you have set an active partition on the boot disk before installing the operating system.
Not implemented (Error: 80004001; Source: Windows)

 

[Failed to run the action: Apply Operating System.
Not implemented (Error: 80004001; Source: Windows)]

 

The execution of the group (Install Operating System) has failed and the execution has been aborted. An action failed.
Operation aborted (Error: 80004004; Source: Windows)

 

System partition not set]

Unable to locate a bootable volume. Attempting to make C:\ bootable.]L

 

If anyone has any knowledge of why this is happening or how I can correct it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers

 

David :)

if you are deploying to a UEFI only system then you need to partition it for GPT disks, you cannot install Windows in UEFI mode on MBR discs,

i've created a guide to show you exactly how to do this for the Microsoft Surface Pro, the only thing you'd need to change is the boot image if the architecture is x86, you can read the guide here.

Hi @anyweb, I'm exactly into the same issue. I'm trying to install a OS in Hyper-V VM. It exactly gives the error as above mentioned. Format and Partition Disk is configured with GPT Type only. PF TS step and advise please.

Hi @anyweb, Any luck with it? I'm going to try this in a new HDD instead of earlier one. I don't know why it's not working because i haven't modified any step in this TS. It is like created through native one without MDT.

can you tell me a bit about the hardware you are using here and what operating system are you trying to install ? also, a screenshot of your task sequence would help

ok well then perhaps it would have been better to create a separate thread for this, seeing as it's got nothing to do with deploying Windows 8 to a HP computer...

anyway, you are testing a very default scenario, i'll compare my log to yours...

does your partition step look like this ?

if not, show me a screenshot of your settings.

in the Windows partition, have you verified that it does a Quick format ?

secondly, your vm has an A:\ drive, have you tried without that ?

Hi, Sorry about thread. I'll follow from now carefully reading thread.

And I have checked my TS step and it's exactly identical to yours. A: drive is diskette drive comes along with new VM in Hyper-V Manager and not sure if this can be removed blank VM.
