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

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...
On which step exaclty does it fail? Can you please post the smsts.log file here.

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.
