MDT Windows 7 DISM error

Hi Experts, getting the following error when trying to update MDT share. Anyone seen this before and how to troubleshoot? This is being deployed on a Windows 7 Pro machine with local admin privileges

=== Making sure the deployment share has the latest x86 tools ===

=== Processing LiteTouchPE (x86) boot image ===

Building requested boot image profile.
Determining if any changes have been made in the boot image configuration.
No existing boot image profile found for platform x86 so a new image will be created.

Changes have been made, boot image will be updated.
Windows PE WIM C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\winpe.wim will be used.
WIM file mounted.

Exit code = -1073741819

DISM /Set-TargetPath failed, rc = -1073741819.
DISM was unable to set the system root (target path) for the Windows PE image, so the update process cannot continue.

Hi Dj, tried this got same error. I am now going to try to install on a brand new Win 7 machine not joined to domain. I am thinking it may be some GPO affecting it. Do you know during install if we should install MDT first or ADK?

Thanks
