SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 capture failing Dell Thin Client

Last Modified: 2018-03-21

We are in the process of purchasing new Dell Thin Clients with Windows 10 IoT installed.

We have been advised by Dell that we can use SCCM 2012 R2 as the client is already installed anyway.

We are having an issue with the capture of the Golden Image.

It is loading and scanning volume then failing before it is writing anything to the storage device.

What disk partitioning is there, specifically what is Z:? Whatever it is, the ts is trying to use that instead of C:.
Also you don't really want to capture the physical machine. If you are creating an image, create a VM using the Dell provided WIM. They have a very good PDF walkthrough.

You did not mention the model but Dell's Wyse support is separate from the standard hardware. Go here:

for a W10 7040 for example.

Link provided is talking about Windows 7 capture and WIM provided by Dell for Windows Embedded 7, As stated it is a Windows 10 IoT install so no WIM provided or drivers from Dell.

Dell support / Pre Sales engineers have no idea on how to fix this either.
