SCCM 2012 OS Deployment: Error when running task sequence (0x80004005)


I am using a task sequence to deploy an operating system to an HP server, but when the server boots into SCCM and attempts to run the task sequence I receive an error message

Failed to run task sequence:  An error occurred while retrieving policy for this computer (8x80004005)

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks in advance

Check the clock in the BIOS of the machine you're deploying to matches that of the time in the forest where the SCCM server is located.
