Error while deploying Vista with MDT and WDS

i've a problem with a MDT deployment of vista business.
What i've done so far:
- Installed MDT 2008
- Installed Windows Deployment Server on the same server
- Added a whole vista business install.wim as operating system into the MDT
- Created a default Task Sequence
- Created a MDT Deployment Point
- Updated the Deployment Point
- Put the WinPE Boot Image into the WDS Boot Images and bootet from Client
- Installed the Refernece Client
- Made some customizations and then sysprepped the client -> Shutdown

- Then i've created a WDS Boot Capture Image and captured it into the WDS Image store
- Now i've added this WDS image into the MDT OS Store with -> New Operating System -> Windows Deployment Services Image
- After this i created a second task sequence pointing to this image and again updated the deployment point
- Finally i booted from the new WinPE Image which i've added into the WDS Server

The Task Sequence fails with the following error:
Unable to find setup, needed to install the image...
Further error details attached in the screenshot.

What did i wrong? Is this the correct process if i try to deploy with MDT and WDS or did i some strange things? :)
Thanks a lot!

Your system looks fine

Have you tried added the images using the custom image file selection rather than connecting to the WDS server?

Have you tried booting into WDS and installing the image from there?
You are not joing the domain with the reference box are you?
I use Arwidmarks capture-sequence in MDT: http://www.deployvista.com/Home/tabid/36/EntryID/77/language/en-US/Default.aspx
