Using MDT for imaging and WDS to PXE clients.
Had an issue with IE10 and Windows 7 where once I had sysprepped my master machine and captured it.On deploying it would come up with
"Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file (c:\windows\panther\unattend.xml) for pass [specialize]. A component or setting specified in the answer file does not exist."
Google told me it was a setting I had to remove in the answer file so i did. My deployment worked.
I then had to make an amendment to my master machine so I switched it on (first time since it had been sysprepped and captured) and I got the same error as above. The only way to remvoe the error is to deploy the image back to the master from MDT. Which kind of ruins the fact that I have a master machine.
Hope the above makes sense. How do I sort this?
Boot the machine with a Linux live CD, navigate to C:\windows\panther\unattend.xml and remove the IE10 bit from the [Specialize] section.
Failing that, nothing really wrong with redeploying the image to the machine, going through the OOBE process and then resysprepping.
