Can you tell me what is your setup ?

Aren't you running this on Vmware workstation by the chance ?

Nope. We have created a Windows server 2012 on our network for testing WDS. Connected to that server through remote desktop connection and I have added the Hyper v on the server and created the virtual machine. Then i went to vm setting and added the ISO image. tried to start, got that error.

I have a question there too. I have to restart to go to BIOS settings right. When I restart it the remote desktop connection is closed, so how to check the bios settings.

You have to do this on server itself, you can't access bios unless you have IPMI management port on your server for network management

Basically you need to be in front of server with keyboard and monitor connected to it

No worry, You might be trying to run multiple hypervisors and if the system isn't set up for nested option and config you might run into these issue, but yeah would be better to check out with your admin

So i just installed MDT on WDS server. We are planning to deploy windows 10 to all computer in the organization. As a test we are creating a test environment with windows 7 which we already have. So my question is how to add win 7 ISO image directly to deployment workbench and also what setting we have to do to assign pc name to be grabbed from asset tag. If that is a new machine MDT assign a name. Is that possible.

This would be link for detailed information

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/windows/deploy/deploy-a-windows-10-image-using-mdt

WMI  would help you with that SELECT * FROM Win32_SystemEnclosure SMBIOSAssetTag

But I'm not 100% sure how it is in MDT, as I'm use to more WDS

You will pre-stage the computer in WDS computer list using mac address of computer NIC or GUID

This isn't simple task and you will have to do your studies, you can't learn this in one day

This includes Unattend.xml files with install configuration, but you need to watch some youtube guides

Ok thanks. Is there any way in MDT or WDS to boot the client computer other than PXE boot.

I don't think so PXE it's whole point of deployment unless you create ready image to DVD or usb and deploy system from it on the Computer directly

Thanks alot in advance.I am watching some youtube videos and learned the basics but they are deploying image on single virtual machine without naming convention.

For MDT
https://www.packtpub.com/networking-and-servers/mastering-microsoft-deployment-toolkit
https://www.lynda.com/Microsoft-Deployment-Toolkit-training-tutorials/7824-0.html

In overall WDS training is included in MCSA: Windows Server 2012 R2 certification training

Microsoft Technet website has a lot of information

You will find most of important information in Microsoft books or any books related to Windows Server Management
