SCCM OSD Capture Task Sequence fails
Posted on 2011-09-15
I am attempting to capture an OS (Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 x86 in this case) in SCCM for the first time, and I've run into an issue.
I am using a VMWare virtual desktop for this purpose. I had no problem adding the computer by MAC address to Computer Association, putting the object in a collection for capture, then advertising the task sequence.
I did notice one thing with PXE boot, it prompts to hit F12 for network boot, I was under the impression that it should boot automatically? If I don't press F12 I get the following:
PXE-M0F : Exiting Intel PXE ROM
When I do press F12, it boots into WinPE and starts the task sequence, it completes the first step (that being "Partition Disk 0"), but it immediately fails while running the "Apply Operating System" step, shows "Wiping volume C:\", and the task sequence window shows it failed with error code 0x80004005.
I opened up notepad in WinPE to browse the X: drive, but both X:\STSTSLog and X:\Windows\SMSTSLog appear to be empty, so without any log to read I'm really shooting in the dark here and not sure what to try next, any ideas?
