    Deploying Images

    Hi All

    Having an issue with running SCCM to push out my images.

    It all seems configured correctly - OS installed - machine allocated in the console.

    I boot the machine to PXE - it connected to the server - runs Windows PE - then it stops when it comes to deploy the OS -

    The machine then reboots.

    I have added a NIC driver - but now at a loss

    Thanks

    First thing to do (if you haven't already) is enable debugging during the deployment

    1) Open up your boot image’s properties
    2) Click on Windows PE tab and enable “Enable command support (testing only)”
    3) Update the boot image on the distribution point

    When in PE hit F8 for a debug shell.

    There are, to say the least, a huge amount of gotcha's with SCCM. Its very good when you get past it though.
    Have you made a distro point for your image and updated it?
    Is anything logged in the SCCM mmc console?
    Is anything logged in the client logs (use F8 debugger to launch notepad)?
    Can you confirm it can ping your server (use F8 again)?
    What O/S?
    Is it a fresh build (aka to make an image) or to deploy a premade image?

    The command prompt is the debugger as such.

    Hi Zero hour

    Just rechecked - i have two boot images for x32 and x64.
    There are DPs configureed,

    Where is the SCCM mmc console?

    I can't ping my server - eventhough i have added the NIC Driver

    Vista is the OS


    THanks

    Are you sure you added a vista nic driver? The process of adding a driver to a boot image is not a quick wizard as such.
    Also are you sccm r2?
    You also need DP points added to the image that the boot image is going to install as well.

    Hi ZH

    I have got a Hp machine i am testing on.. Just downloaded the latest driver, and added it to the the driver area, and also added it to the Driver Package..

    I have created the DP in the image and the boot image.

    May be i am missing adding a NIC driver the boot image, as i have just checked my task list and the drivers i thought i was installing don't get there till step 5.


    Found this http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb680705.aspx


    Thanks

    Ahh yeh you need to integrate the driver into the boot image. Its a wizard to do it but its slow as it extracts and integrated into the boot wim.
    To integrate into the boot images (do this for x86 only generally as it always uses x86 regardless of cpu if your installing 32bit windows) right click your boot image and go to properties.
    Then go to the Windows PE tab and click the star icon and select your vista nic driver (only integrate essential drivers and NEVER all you need as stage 5 will do this anyway) and click okay. Then do an update distro point on the boot image and see if ping then works using the debugging command line in the PXE OS.

    You might want to have a read of this:

    How can I troubleshoot Windows PE booting in SCCM

    edit: particularly the section entitled "PXE Client Reboots After Booting In WinPE"

    Think i am getting closer

    Seems to be somehting wrong with by x86 boot image. Had a network card eralier on WinPE, can't get one now.

    Just switched to x64 boot image and i have an ip address.

    Strange!

    Can i get a new version of the boot image from any where?

    Ahh ha. Did you follow instructions to set up PXE certificates?
    I'll try and find the link.

    Right here we go, if you have setup the pxe certificates then follow this:
