So SCCM 2012 CU3, after following the walk-through on windows-noob.com http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/6353-using-system-center-2012-configuration-manager-part-7-build-and-capture-windows-7-x64-sp1/

I'm able to boot my test machines (both physical and vm) via PXE, and load the 64 bit boot image.  The SCCM Task Sequence Wizard runs but fails at:

This task sequence cannot be run because the program files for MI100003 cannot be located in the distribution point.

So I found the referenced task MI100003 in the Distribution status/Content Status Configuration Manager Client Package.  172.55mb Compliance 0%.

Upon further inspection it's status is 'in Progress waiting on prestaged content'

Not sure why my task which was created exactly like the Windows-noob guy did, which was Building a Win7x64SP1 image.  But in any event why is this still in progress and where can I find out what's going on here?

Wait no that only applies to SCCM 2012 with CU1.  I have CU3 and it will not install.

Wait I got it. I had to go into the Distribution Point properties and disable Enable this DP for prestaged content.

Once that was done and about 2-3 minutes elapsed the compliance was 100%.
