CCTK with MDT 2012

Posted on 2013-05-20
Last Modified: 2016-11-23
I am looking at creating a task to set the Dell SATA Operation to Raid On or AHCI before laying down my Windows 7. The problem it that Dell Technical support is telling me that it isn't recommended nor supported in trying to put it into the WINPE. So my question is has anyone been successful in setting this up using a INI file and how did you do it. I am a newb to both MDT and CCTK and I ask that you please be specific and screenshots are a big plus. I thank you in advance for your Guru-ness!

You can do this. You will want to copy the CCTK files into the \\SERVER\DeploymentShare$\Tools Folder.

Then right click on your MDT deployment share (in the Deployment workbench) and select properties. Then select the windows pe tab. Under extra directory to add line, add your local cctk folder (ex: C:\DeploymentShare\Tools\CCTK)

Update your deployment share and load in the new boot images to your boot media (PXE,DVD,etc)

In your task sequence, add a new command line task. Here is an example that removes the setup password: cctk.exe --setuppwd= --valsetuppwd=currentpwd

Set the start in directory to X:\Windows\CCTK\

I have tried this and it gives me an error (Litetouch failed Return code 2147467259). I am not sure if the start directory is correct because it doesn't show cctk? I appreciate any additional help that I can get.

Press F8 in Windows PE. See if you can browse to the CCTK folder.

In my VM Workstation I don't but in my Test Deployment MDT Environment I do :). So the CCTK change the Sata Operation OK but it has a problem determining where to install Windows 7, even after forcing a reboot and going back into MDT to install. Please see the attached error. I have tried this on a few differnt types of OptiPlex's (780 and 7010) with the same result.They all have the latest Bios version. I have a ticket in with Dell but they haven't come up with anything yet. I appreciate your help.

Best regards,

Are you using CCTK to change the SATA operation? If so, are you doing it in the preinstall phase of the task sequence?
