Deploying Windows 7 SP1 Image using MDT 2010

Posted on 2012-03-22
Last Modified: 2012-04-04
I have my MDT 2010/WDS environment setup and working.  I've ran into a snag after capturing an online image with SP1 installed manually.  
When I attempt to redeploy the image using my deploy Task Sequence I'm getting the following error when the "Install Operating System" task attempts to start

Error - Unable to find SETUP, needed to install the image \\server\share\OS\Image.wim
ZTI ERROR - Non zero return code by LTIApply, rc=1

I'm guessing I need to add the SP1 media to the boot image.

I updated The Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) Supplement for Windows 7 SP1, going to recreate the WIM image and see.

I agree you will need Windows 7 SP1 media as the version numbers will be different.

So do I just import SP1? Or do I have to get Windows 7 Enterprise bundled with SP1 imported?

Get the bundled version. The captured image uses source files already imported in MDT. Your captured image will now have a different Windows version number as it is SP1 (You should the version number difference in the OS window). Once the imported source matches the customized version you should have no problems

Problem is I don't have Win 7 bundled with SP1.  Can I make this work by importing the SP1  source files into Packages on the workbench?

I doubt it. You may well be able to use an evaluation copy from the MS site as its just files not licenses.
