MDT noob. No OS to select when running Capture and sysprep
Just started to play with MDT
Firstly I am trying to capture a clean xp image using MDT 2010 update 1.
I have selected sysprep and capture but at the select OS page its blank and errors if I try to move on.
I am very very new to this so any advice would be great.

Install XP and then from the run command go to this location: \\servername\MDTFolder$\Scripts\LiteTouch.vbs
This will invoke sysprep. However, you need to ensure you have first created yourself a task sequence that does a sysprep and capture before running the vbs file.

Thanks for the reply.

The problem is creating the task sequence. I get to the page that says choose your OS but I have nothing listed.

You need to import the OS into the Operating Systems folder in the console. This will then allow you to select an OS from the dropdown list in task sequence.

Should I use Windows Deployment Services to deploy a PXE boot image? Just looking at some step by steps and it says to do this.

OK next question, Sysprep and capture obviously captures an image for deploment but what does standard client task sequence do. Does it just deploy my OS that I have added to MDT?

Firstly, yes, you use WDS to pxe boot the MDT boot image.
Secondly, you import the newky created syspreped image from the Captures folder into the Operating Systems folder in the MDT console. Then, create a task sequence and select from the dropdown list Standard Client Task, and from there you will be able to choose the image you had created.

I have just tried to run a sysprep and capture task but get invalid credentials (800704c3) at the specify credentials for connecting to network shares screen on the client computer after running litetouch.vbs from deployshare on server.
I have googled but only 2 pages are returned and most seem to be related to the older version of mdt.

OK got passed that issue by putting the servername.lan in the domain box

When I try to capture or deploy an xp image, the pc pxe boots ok and displays the 'run deployment wizard page' but the next page errors with, A connection to the deployment share could not be made. The following network device does not have a driver installed.
I am using vmware player and had been informed MDT supported this without any additional drivers. If that is not the case do I need to find the vmware network driver and put them into the out-of-box drivers folder in MDT?

possibly depends what type of virtual nic you have installed i cant remember if vmware player has a legacy nic or not. Does work out of the box to virtual pc2007 and hyper v

ok installed vpc2007 and it gets further but then errors saying a processor speed of 3mhz is insufficient. I found a hack to change the vdivalidate mdt script too <2mhz before giving an error but no joy.

For those that get the processor error I just removed the processor check text from the validate script. Image is installing as I type.
