While configuring MDT 2010 today I struggled a bit with a strange issue.
I’ve installed a server with MDT 2010 RU1 on it, latest WAIK and WDS on it to do a network installation.
Once I captured an image from my source computer I imported the image to the MDT deployment share, created a task sequence that deploys it and start my target computer with a network boot.
The target computer connected to my network share succesfully and it presented with the deployement wizard I previously created. Once the deployement wizard started, it failed with the following error:
To better understand the issue, I opened the BDD.log file and found the following:
ERROR – Unable to find SETUP, needed to install the image \\Servername\DeploymentShare$\Operating Systems\Image.wim
ZTI ERROR – Non-zero return code by LTIApply, rc = 1
Litetouch deployment failed, Return Code = -2147467259 0x80004005
After cracking my head a bit I found the solution – when I imported the image I chose ‘Setup and Sysprep files are not needed’
When in fact, I had to choose ‘Copy Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008…’ and point it to the previously imported original Windows 7 Installation files, like that:
After the import I updated my DeploymentShare and the rebooted my target pc, this time all went well!
