I'm trying to do a very basic deployment using MDT 2008.  It goes through much of the deployment and then after restarting, continues for a minute or two and then throws this error:

ERROR - ZTITatoo state restore task should be running in the full OS, aboring
ZTIERROR - Non-zero return code by ZTITatoo, rc = 1
#####################################################
#####################################################

#Environment Error! Please restart wizard again!

ZTIERROR - Non-zero return code by ZTIApplications, rc = 1
Non-zero return code executing command "X:\Deploy\Tools\X86\TsmBootstrap.exe" /env:SAContinue, rc = -2147467259


It mentions log files, where are the log files for MDT2008 located?  Has anyone encountered this error before?  How should I go about troubleshooting it?  Thanks

Watch Question

Log files are usually located at C:\MININT\SMSOSD\OSDLOGS or C:\Temp\SMSOSD  or C:\SMSOSD

It looks like there is a problem with an application rather than the OS as the ZTIApplications script is throwing up an error. Are you deploying any applications? if so which ones?

The only application I'm deploying is Office 2003.
Have you tried deploying the OS without office or deploying office on its own?

Not yet, but I will tomm.  How come it says ZTI on all those?  We're doing an LTI.

So, I removed the Applications step in my Task Sequence and MDT finished saying that the deployment was successful.  Upon reboot, I did not boot from the disc.  I was brought to a blue Windows Setup screen, asking me to select a folder to install Windows.  Why is it doing this?  I used Windows XP disc to create my Operating System entry in MDT 2008, is that why?

Also, I noticed another thing.  In my Operating System properties, it shows the size as 0.  Is that normal?  I've attached a pic to show you what I'm talking about.

The Operating System properties are fine - they are exactly the same as mine.

You need to take a look at your task sequence for deploying XP. You need to insert a file to fix a bug (see  http://thelazyadmin.com/blogs/thelazyadmin/archive/2007/05/24/building-a-windows-xp-image-in-bdd-2007-part-1.aspx). You shouldn't need to do too much just to push out the OS but make sure the client has 512 Ram minimum.

Well, I got it to work.  I took out the Tatoo and Install Application steps.  It went through it's copying and stuff and a window popped up saying the deployment was successful.  Upon restart, I was brought to a blue Windows setup screen, like you'd see if you booted from an XP disc.  It then asked me to copy down the setup files (which I thought it did earlier) and then it went into the standard setup mode, except it was unattended.  I guess I was under the impression that after the LTI disc was done doing it's thing, it'd boot to the XP image's desktop.  

Now I gotta get the Applications to work.  Think that registry fix would be related to Applications erroring out?
