Capture/Deploy Windows 10 Enterprise Technical Preview with MDT 2013

Now that Windows 10 Enterprise Technical Preview is out many of us IT Pros have or are currently downloading it for evaluation. I immediately tried to create a custom capture image in MDT 2013 so I can easily deploy this via our existing deployment engine.

I experienced a couple of problems along the way, which I will detail in chronological order.

Problem 01 – Unable to apply image.

The first problem I experienced was that it, post Installing Operating System failed. BDD.log said:

About to run command: dism.exe /Image:C:\ /Apply-Unattend:C:\Windows\Panther\Unattend.xml /ScratchDir:C:\MININT\Scratch LTIApply 2014-10-02 09:18:14 0 (0x0000)

FAILURE ( 5627 ): 50: Run DISM.exe LTIApply 2014-10-02 09:18:15 0 (0x0000)

So I went to the source I knew would have the answer, Johan Arwidmark and his excellent blog . Sure enough Johan had already a workaround which in essence boils down to taking DISM subsystem and DISM.exe from the Windows 10 Enterprise Technical Preview boot.wim file and copying it into WinPE.

I followed his instructions and sure enough my installation managed to proceed to the next step, and in my case the next problem. Please do not forget to add this workaround to both your Capture and your Deployment Task Sequence!

Problem 02 – Unable to apply OS Roles

As part of my capture task sequence I’m using the standard “Install Roles and Features” task, which in turn was what failed next. The error message was:

FAILURE ( 9003 ): Unknown OS current version value, unable to install roles. (OSCurrentVersion = 6.4.9841) ZTIOSRole 2014-10-02 10:26:54 0 (0x0000)
Command completed, return code = -2147467259 LiteTouch 2014-10-02 10:26:57 0 (0x0000)
Litetouch deployment failed, Return Code = -2147467259 0x80004005 LiteTouch 2014-10-02 10:26:57 0 (0x0000)

The solution is to go to your MDT Deployment Share, go to the Scripts folder and find the file ZTIOSRole.wsf file.


Open the file in Notepad and search for Case “6.3” and it should take you to the section starting with Case “6.3”


Now scroll down until you see “End if” and then select the entire section ( Case “6.3” to “End if” ), copy it and paste it directly underneath. Finally, in the new section replace 6.3 with 6.4 as illustrated below.


Now save the file and restart your installation. Happy deployment!
