    Import OS or MDT

    HI

    having some problems with SCCM2012, this is a lab setup so can wipe it.

    installed it and didn't have any distribution point on the server, its a standalone site server.
    uninstalled and re-installed and now i have distribution point,

    intergrated mdt2012 but can't create an MDT boot image or task sequence,.

    Description = "Failed to get the image property from the source WIM file due to error 80070032"; or error maybe 80070002 sometimes.

    so i thought forget mdt for a minute and just use sccm, but i can't even import the XP source files via operating system installers, i also tried import server 2008 r2 files that way as well..

    The specified path does not contain a valid operating system or you do not have permission to access it. specify a valid path.

    okay something is screwy here.

    the unc path i'm using - the SCCM Server's computer account has full control so does the user i am logged in as using the console and can access the unc path via start run. of the share and the security of the files aswell.


    any ideas?

    Try adding the system account to have read and write permissions to your source folders. I had random errors until i did this.

    funny i actually did that and replied before i saw yours but thank you.

    i kind of came to the conclusion by bring a command prompt up as system and then doing pushd \\SERVER\SHARE\PATH and getting access denied.

    i'm more concerned that I don't know if that is a security risk or not

    Its rather odd. I didnt find any MS documents telling you about this. I only started having problem when issuing Updates and importing drivers. What you was doing was ok with me.

    Anyway glad i was correct for one

    having trouble getting vmware drivers into the boot images now for pe. stupid thing is i've done all this before for 2007.

    i'm just going to actually install windows 7 on the vm and the install the vmware tools and then driver backup it. seems silly because i've imported the drivers that come with tools in the program files directory and it still doesn't pick it up/

    We use ESXi 5.0 and didnt need any drivers. What did you use the backup the drivers please?

    driverbackup

    DriverBackup! | Free Security & Utilities software downloads at SourceForge.net

    didn't use that in the end hoping this will work

    How To, Computer Tips Trick And Creative Ideas: VMware Accelerated AMD PCNet Adapter Driver For Windows 7 Download

    its probably because i'm using an xp vm, i know you can change the vmx file, but i need this to work on XP with no vmware tools as i am building a clean xp image on it.

    okay so they caught me out big time.

    seems they have changed how it responds to the client if it no advertisement or the pxe advert needs clearing. it used to reply with a dummy pxeboot.com which basically did nothing but still printing pending request etc on the screen, now it doesn't even respond with a boot file. not really a problem but take longer to boot waiting for the client to time out. and confused me expecting the old 2007 behaviour
