download432Consider the following scenario:

Assume that you install or upgrade to Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager on a System Center Configuration Manager site server. When you try to deploy a task sequence that has an associated Windows PE 3.1 boot image to a Windows XP-based computer in an update scenario, the deployment fails, and the following error message is logged in the Smsts.log file:

  • What happens if you have already installed kb2905002 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2905002) and you apply this kb2910552? I'm asking because i noticed that after kb2905002 tscore.dll version is 5.0.7958.1101 and this new kb2910552 says it's changed to 5.0.7958.1000..

  • That was an error in the original posting of the KB article. It has now been updated to reflect the proper version of the DLL, which is newer than the one form KB2905002 and includes the fix from KB2905002.

  • Hotfix installed, but the same error

  • I am still having the same issue after the hotfix is applied and the boot images have been updated.

  • I have installed the hotfix on my CAS and all site servers but still the error is same.
