SCCM 2007 - I do not get a list of task sequences to choose from

Hi folks.  I have completed one laptop build and am starting on another.  The problem is though, I have advertised the new task sequence, the laptop starts up after a pxeboot into the sccm screen, but where I normally get the task sequence wizard up where I can select a sequence, the machine just reboots???  any ideas why that would be?

turn on "enable command line support" in your boot wim... then as soon as the SCCM background is disaplyed, hit F8 to get a command prompt... you can then look at the logs which will tell you why this is happening.. (most likely mass-storage driver or network driver issue - ie, the appropriate drivers arent in your PE boot wim.)

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Hi ya.  Many thanks I'll give that a go this morning.  I was hedging my bets on a problem with the network drivers but wasnt sure how to see the logs so I'll check that out.  Many thanks, I'll let you know how I get on.


Hi ya.  Ok after looking into this (thanks for the heads up on the F8 for the dos drop), I found a problem with the Dell E4300 network card drivers which Dell have posted an INF file replacement for on thier website.  In addition for anyone else that wants to know, you also have to use the original drivers in the driver package as the altered ones will not install into the operating system.

Many thanks for your help HayesJupe.


Thanks again for your help :-)
