SCCM 2007 - Task Sequence for HP Spectre x360 laptops

Hi Guys,

We have two Spectre x360 laptops with windows 8 OEM on them but with no inbuilt network adapter so we are using a USB to network adapter converter to boot from PXE to install windows 7 SOE.
When we try this, we get the following error:

PXE-T04: access violation
PXE-E36: Error received from TFTP SERVER
Pxe-m0f: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.
Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key

Other models can load the task sequence fine.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Consideration.

If you use one USB to Ethernet device for OSD. First time the instalation will go, the second time the device will no longer be unknown but known (MAC Address) existing installation and the installation will fail.

hi Ben, thanks for the reply. So how can we fix this?

Benjamin VoglarIT ProCommented:
Make a Collection and manually import a device (use MAC Address of USB to Ethernet device) and deploy the task sequence to the collection.

Or Every time after deploying go to sccm end manually delete new installed device.

Plug it in your computer and open CMD.

type: ipconfig /all

After new computer comes in to console, simple select it and press delete.

ok when I plug it into my computer, it looks like it requires a driver as I cant see it in my network adapters ipconfig /all. Would I need to install the drivers in SCCM aswell for this device?

I installed the driver on my machine and I can now see the mac address.

Questions:

1. Would I still need to import the driver into SCCM somewhere so it can recognise the USB to NIC device?
2. I dont see the computer name of the win 8 machine im trying to image in SCCM 2007. Would it be under the computer name or something else? I dont think it would be under the computer name because it doesn't get that far in to task sequence process to note down that computer name. It fails pretty much at the start.

Yes.

You have to push the USB drivers to boot image and to the task sequence.

I had the identical problem when I was installing the OS on the windows tablet PC. I only know that I had a lot of trouble before I succeeded.

I had a USB to Ethernet LEVELONE, which has no digitally signed drivers, and the drivers ware onely x32 bit. I had to buy a new one.....

So this could be the problem then? SCCM doesnt recognize the USB device.
If its not too much trouble, are you able to assist with the push of the USB driver to the boot image and task sequence?

is it a lengthy process?

We upgraded our SCCM to 2012 R2. I hope it is the same on 2007 R2.


Go to Operation System - Drivers. Right click and import drivers. Select the Folder where you extracted USB drivers.

Leave the default setting in TaskSquence (AutoApply drivers).

Then go to BootImage sector. Right on Your BootImage and click properties. Find driver tab and select new imported driver.

So I imported the .inf driver to all the packages and boot images... the task sequence is set to auto apply.

I cant seem to find bootimage sector. I can find boot images but if I right click, there is no driver tab

When U import the inf. Are U asked if U will import the driver in bootimage to? If so. Do that. Then do not forget to update the distribution point.

In sccm 2007 R2 You have to manually import USB driver to boot image.

Hi Ben,

I used the first link to manually create the USB to NIC package in WDS and then add the driver package to the image but still didnt work. Same message. do I need to restart SCCM after this or something?

Is there a way to boot from USB instead of USB to NIC? I'm not sure what the issue could be :(

Hi Ben,

So i'm trying to create an offline standalone USB bootable but it continues to say "Package ***0006F will not fit on the target media.". I have tried a 8GB USB and a 32GB USB and same thing.... any ideas? how can we tell how big it is? ive gone through those known errors and fixes but cant see mine listed. The Package ***0006F seems to be the operating system package Windows 7 - 64bit

Try to create an ISO and then make a bootable media prom the ISO.

If this is one type of computer you have problem with, I would us a third party SW like Symantec Ghost or Acronis. If you Will do so, dont forget to uninstall SCCM agint before you make a image.
