MDT 2010 Multicast task sequence get stuck

Dear Experts,

I got a trouble with MDT when I do multicast transmission task to deploy OS onto clients.
When I run MDT multicast transmission task, it always stuck at "Attempting multicast transfer" with a little bit percentages (Usually 4% or 6%). I see no traffic go through network interface when monitor. I've tried using direct connection between server and client (using cross-over cable) but nothing change.
Could you please help me pass this step
I'm using Windows server 2008 R2, MDT2010 to deploy Windows 7. I already installed WDS role and WAIK

Thank you all

What are your multicast settings? Are the relevant firewall ports open?

Dear hhaywood000

I'm sorry for may late response. All settings I left they as default, no special settings, I already turn off firewall. I tried connecting server and client directly by using cross-over cable but not thing change.
Thank you for your help

Does the whole system work when just deploying normally without bringing in multicast?

Dear hhaywood000

I'm sorry for my late response. Actually, it cannot work even though deploying normally.
It always stuck at few percents. I have tried installing a new server for testing but it still doesn't work.
I'm going to test deploying Windows 7 32bit to make sure the problem is not come from architecture. I'll update the status for you

Thank you for your help

No problems. Try this in order

WDS only
MDT simple client install
A new install.wim

Dear hhaywood000

I've finished testing as your recommend. I installed a fresh Server and tried from the beginning and have some result
WDS only: worked
MDT simple client install: worked. I can capture image of new installed machine but when I use multicast and it stuck again. Maybe I have a mistake in some step.
I installed Lab as order: Windows Server > Join domain > Windows AIK > DHCP > WDS > MDT then I add Installation source to MDT.
I'll check them again
Thank you for your strong support

Best regards,

Do your switches support multicast? Is it turned on?

James HaywoodCommented:
Also do you have multicast support turned on within MDT?

This is a good link showing how to test the multicast transmissions from WDS
