We use SCCM 2012 R2 to create and deploy all of our images. We are deploying Dell Latitude e7250 notebooks this year. I have downloaded the latest cab family of drivers from Dell and created a task in our Windows 7 Task Sequence. The e7250 will PXE boot and all the tasks complete, including applying the operating system and the driver package. The task sequence then calls for a reboot. The e7250 reboots, setups devices, and than at the applying settings, it bombs out. (I have attached a pic I took with my phone.)
We have a tasks in the sequence that copy and apply the x86 KDMF for Windows 7. I tried disabling this step, but the image still bombs.
I've been experiencing the same thing, I have an inline process to inject the KMDF. Thinking this was causing the failure, I injected the KMDF using DISM and reimported a new .wim. This didn't help.
I then added the UMDF as part of the TS, and the 7250 now imaged fine using Windows 7 Enterprise x64.
Below the Apply Windows Settings step, I have;
Create Scratch Directory
cmd.exe /c mkdir %OSDisk%\Scratch
Install KMDF 1.11 Framework
cmd.exe /c X:\windows\system32\dism.exe /ScratchDir:%OSDisk%\Scratch /Image:%OSDisk%\ /Add-Package /PackagePath:%_SMSTSMDataPath%\Packages\yourpackageid\Windows6.1-KB2685811-x64.cab
Install UMDF 1.11 Framework
cmd.exe /c X:\windows\system32\dism.exe /ScratchDir:%OSDisk%\Scratch /Image:%OSDisk%\ /Add-Package /PackagePath:%_SMSTSMDataPath%\Packages\yourpackageid\Windows6.1-KB2685813-x64.cab
Remove Scratch Folder
cmd.exe /c rmdir /S /Q "C:\Scratch"
Thank you for this help JAMESVINCENT.
I am going to try this out.
Not really sure what it is doing, could you give a high level explanation?
UMDF is like the new BIOS, right? What are you doing here? adding something so Windows can talk to the UMDF BIOS?
