  • Adding Boot image into SCCM 2012 R2

    I have accidentally deleted the default boot image for x86. Now I can't add it back no matter what boot.wim file I use it comes up with error at the end of the wizard

    "The specified file can not be imported. Make sure the file is not read only and you have read and write access to it"

    Yes, I have recreated wim file and used it from the CD, checked its not ready only and have full control.

    My boot image x64 is fine though. This should at least let me deploy 64 bit image?

    IIRC the boot image architecture is totally independent of the final OS architecture (but obviously depends on the underlying hardware)

    I know you can boot from a 32-bit boot image and install a 64-bit OS (on 64-bit hardware) so I assume that as long as the hardware is 64-bit, you can boot from the 64-bit boot image and install an x86 OS

    (Obviously the question is why, in this day and age, you would want to use a 32-bit OS )

      SCCM 2012 R2 requires to have both 32 and 64 bit boot images.

      these are already created when you install SCCM by default

      I have deleted the default one.

      It does give you option to add another one but mine keep failing what that error

      "The specified file can not be imported. Make sure the file is not read only and you have read and write access to it"

        Turns out SCCM was keep stripping out the permission on OSD folder. So I added the permission and left the permission window open in the background and run the add boot image wizard again and it work.

        But now when I am pushing the image I am getting


        "No response from windows deployment server
        Launching pxeboot.com...
        Press F12 for network service boot
        PXE-M0F : Exiting PXE ROM
        Operating system now found."

        I have boot files in SMSboot\x64 folder
        I have system installers and system images in

        REMINST\Image folder

          Check that all Pre-Reqs have been met for the roles. For example, you appear to not be getting a DHCP address assigned unless that came before the below, in which case, have you advertised the deployment?

            DHCP is working fine I can see its picking up IP address


            Yes, I have deploy the task sequence for this machine which is in my test group. I have tried with "Avaliable" and "Required" option.

            Files are there on share folder and its using domain admin account as permission.

              So you have pre-staged the Computer account in SCCM and allocated it's MAC address and/or GUID of the NIC you are booting from? Have you tested with publishing it to the Unknown Computers, which prior to doing so, just in-case, ensure you have enforced a pin on the deployment.
