Here is the situation, I've loaded MDT 2008 and updated it to 4.2 without issue on my desktop. However, when I created the same thing on a server copying the distribution share plus added a few new wim images. I get a bad pool error when i go to run the lite touch installation. It gets pass the loading phase but when the scrolling green bars pass 2 times, I get the error. I've double checked everything and it seems to be in order. On another note I went back to the desktop loaded the new wim from the server and burned a new disk and I got the bad pool error again. I really don't understand how or what is happening. But what I do know is that for my state of mind I used the orginal desktop disk I burned to use on the desktop and it boots and loads all of the wim's, but I need it to work on the server to get it off of my workstation. Any ideas???
how would i know if i have the mdt lite touch, is the mdt 2008 the same or is it different.
I installed mdt 2008 and i am having an issue when configuring the office application. i installed office 2003, visio 2003 and project 2003 and i dont see the office TAB to configure the license or the setup of office
Great video walkthrough. Helped me with the last little bit that I was missing, now its running great.
i have installed MDT 2008 is there a difference between MDT 2008 and MDT Lite touch.
The problem i am having is i installed office 2003, visio and project 2003 and I dont get the office product TAB in application to configure office. is there another software for me to download to see this tab.
great video wish i would have watched it last week!!
Great Video, I am looking for more information on the next steps. Is there a guide to explain how to deploy the final image? Can this be done zero touch with MDT or do i have to get SCCM? I notice that there were no instructions on using the MDT database. Could someone point me in the direction of how to use the database and what it is for?
I have been spending a week learning WAIK, running endless images and deployment techniques, all just because I wish to make my own OS recover the way I wish and also be preinstalled with updates, apps and drivers in case of a reinstall.
MDT is awesome and video is so helpful now. However, I just don't seem to be bright enough to figure out how to not point to a network location. I wish to deploy an image and then capture it , pointing to a drive location .. not a network drive :( I am sure it is a simple 3-4 choices but pleaseeee can someone help me. I look and look for examples or guides using MDT without WDS (I am rebuilding my Vista on Vista and can't stand OEM recovery disks with their crap ad and spam programs). Please a friendly soul give me pointers. Kind regards,
I use MDT and have a network deploymetn point- but it's on the same machine as the MDT, it's just a separate share. If you're running Vista you can a whole pc backup to an external drive to back up the pc that's running MDT, in case of failure.
Did anyone get Windows MDT 2010 to deploy Windows XP SP2 successfully? Getting this error no matter what I try :(
If that device is the NIC then you don't have the correct driver for WINpe.Vista driver is needed- not sure about MDT 2010 - still using 2008...
I am in process of creating a Windows XP SP2 image using MDT 2010.
I want to make the two partitions during the deployment.. Partition 1 C: Windows and Partition 2 D: Data.
I have moved document and settings to D Drive; using registry key.
While capturing the MDT sysprep and capture task sequence captures only Partition 1. This is because MDT only capture system Partition.
And During the standard Client task sequence in "Format and Partition Disk" task i have created partitions as C: as 35 % of Disk as primary and D: as logical partition as 100% of disk. it does the formating and partitioning successfully; but my D: does not have any data on it.. Due to this i am unable to do certain post OS installation tasks. using scritps placed in startup of adminitrator profile.
I have manually captured D drive using imagex and then created a custom command task task sequence to apply the D drive image using imagex after the 'Install Operation System' task. but the task sequence failed with error "system could not find the path specified". I have checked the imagex command and it's correct. I have observed that during WinPE after formating the disk it assign a random drive letter. During my last test the drive letter assigned to logical partition was E. Also the the E: Drive has one folder called "smstslogs" which has smsts.log file.
The Imagex command is as follows
cmd /c ""\\Servername\deploymentshare$\Tools\X86\imagex.exe" /apply "\\servername\deploymentshare$\Operating Systems\data\data.wim" 1 D: >> C:\MININT\SMSOSD\OSDLOGS\LTIApplyData_imagex.log 2>&1"
Can somebody help me on this..
is there a way i can download the whole video in one go, i cant seem to stream it.
Hi what is the user name and password am suposed to use to view the video help urgently
