MDT 2010 fails to fully deploy Windows 7 Embedded RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there.

    I am trying to use MDT 2010 to deploy window 7 Embedded (WES7P) and the deployment stops when the target reboots from what looks like the end of the Postinstall phase.  I turned on the monitoring and it says that it is on step 52 of 88.  I am left with a logon screen, which I could use to continue (undesirable as it takes more steps). When I try to redeploy to the box in this state, it claims that there is already a deployment in progress, so it knows something is still unfinished.

    I have gathered the C:\MININT\SMSOSD\OSDLOGS\BDD.log file along with the SMSTS.LOG file and have used the Trace32 exe to look at these.  Aside from the "Failed to create D:\_SMSTaskSequence (3)" in red in SMSTS.LOG, (which I have also found in successful deployments), I see no glaring issues.

    How do I get the "reboot to Embedded" step to boot to the next task properly so the deployment can continue?

    Thank you - Steve
