SCCM 2012 R2 deploy Win7 task sequence?

Hi folks,

I've recently installed SCCM 2012 R2 (first time user), and ran a Build and Capture task sequence successfully.
I now created a deploy existing image task sequence and it fails during Applying OS part of task sequence.

I noticed when I collected the smsts.log from the client (VM), I had lost my IP address.  I was able to renew it, but maybe has something to do with failure?

I've attached pics of errors in log and configuration.

Anyone have suggestions?

Thanks,

romatlo

I believe that you have to apply data image 1 first and next the operating system.

So edit your task sequence, select apply data image 1 and move it up one step.

I hope this could be the issue.

You have to make sure the correct Network Driver for that model is included in the boot Images.

Thanks for responses!
I did move up the apply data image to above Apply OS, but still failed with same error.
I also tried a new task sequence using default install.wim from Win7 DVD, same failure.

I did get a capture previously from same vmware vm (e1000 NIC), so I guess I was thinking that NIC should be working.

Still testing...

After following your suggestions, it led me to find my problem.  My DHCP lease time was set to 5 minutes (from other testing).
I changed it to 8 hours and working now!

I guess this did not affect me during build and capture, but did on deploy.
I will close this thread.
