SCCM for OS deployment with RAID1

We are looking to deploy a series of PCs that have a RAID controller and two identical hard drives. We use System Center 2012 RC2.

We've put the RAID drivers onto the boot image and the process completes successfully up to the point where it installs the ConfigManager client. It then reboots into the Windows loading  screen.

When the "Windows Loading" screen appears, it sits for a few minutes and then restarts the PC.

Can anyone assist?

Thanks!

To confirm, we are installing the OS via PXE deployment.

First of all make sure you took the correct Driver for the Windows PE.
Windows PE is always based on a normal Windows System like Vista or 7

For experimentation I always use MDT first before committing things to SCCM, I can do it 20x more often than waiting for SCCM to update.. If you haven't integrated MDT with SCCM then you should it adds a lot more features.

Are you using the cheap $2 fakeraid controller that is on these motherboards? How are you thinking of setting up the raid from windows? Can it only be controlled and setup hands on?

are you using the correct RAID drivers and are they injected both into the boot.wim AND the install.wim?

The driver has been injected -- it obviously works because it can write the OS to the drive.  I also added an "Auto Apply Drivers" sequence to install it for the OS itself.

The blue screen error is 0000007B, 0x80786B58, 0xC0000034

David, we're using a JMicron JMB36X SATA Controller.

Regarding the Windows setup -- a missing step in regards to that may be the missing piece and that's what I need help with figuring out. Logic says the driver install should do it.

Issue resolved. We added a task sequence to deploy the 32 bit driver via "Apply Driver Package" rather than "Auto Apply Driver" and included the 32 bit driver in the boot image. That fixed it.
