Deployed Windows 7 Image failing to start -SCCM 2012 SP1
Hello, I am deploying windows 7 image using SCCM 2012 SP1, the installation goes thru fine but when it is in the process of restart, a blue screen is displayed for a split second and then it tries to reboot again with same results. Are there any logs on the SCCM server I can check to see where the problem may be?

Check the SMSTS.log on the client that is being imaged. The location of the log depends where you are in the task sequence process.

Are you applying a driver package in your task sequence for that particular PC make and model?

No driver package is being applied. All the drivers are under Drivers.

Could possibly be a driver issue. Does this happen on all devices or just one model? If it's just one model perhaps you could consider testing with a driver package only.

with all models. That's why I was trying to see if there are any logs I can check off the SCCM server.

Tried safe mode with command prompt but same results. It won't let me get to the logs...

Does it fail during the TS or just reboot and BS. What OS are you deploying? Are you PXE imaging? Can you find the report "History of a task sequence deployment on a computer" and see if the error is in there for an unknown system?

It's failing at reboot, the windows logo comes up and then a quick blue screen ant it tries to reboot again. I am deploying Windows 7. I cannot access the imaged computer at all, even safe mode with command prompt does not work.

Can you boot back up to WinPE and access c:\?

You need to get the blue screen error code. When it reboots, hit F8 like you are going into safe-mode but instead of doing so, choose the option that says something like proceed but do not automatically restart on error -- it's near the bottom, next to last if I remember correctly. Then, the blue screen won't go way and you can troubleshoot based on the error code (and post it here).

This generally means inaccessible boot device. How are you partitioning the drive and applying the image?

This is one way to do it

Gerry is correct that this means inaccessible boot device (not usually though, always). And, it is always the result of a missing or bad storage driver. You need to add the appropriate storage driver for deployment during the TS.

Remember to update driver packages, boot and dp..

Any idea on what's wrong with the settings above and why it's unable to boot up?

Sorry, but what you've posted above has nothing to do with adding the proper storage drivers to the deployed OS image so I'm not sure why you're expecting different results. As Mentioned, a 7B blue screen code is always related to storage drivers and the accessibility of the storage.
