There are no task sequences available to this computer - yet it PXE booted from the very task

TS created & assigned to Collection (required)
Blank machine imported (name,MAC, BIOS ID) to this Collection

Machine PXE boots to the image in the Task Sequence and then throws error and reboots.

There are no task sequences available to this computer.. Please ensure you have at least one task sequence advertised to this computer.
Unspecified error (Error: 80004005; Source: Windows)

Any idea why that could be (it makes no sense to me)

Thanks

Assuming you have command line support enabled, you should hit F8 before it restarts.  Check that the device has an IP address (the boot image may not have the network driver in it), and check the smsts.log file under %temp% for errors.

 

I hope that helps,

Also if you are on SP2 or R2 SP1 there is a known bug related to DST where you need to make sure the available time for the TS deployment is more than 1 hour in the past.

Hi Jason

Do you happen to have or know where to find a consolidated list of all the known bugs\issue with R2 SP1 "so far"?

Yes, IP is there. I did not know about the "known" bug. I am sure I set it up to be "As soon as possible". That could explain it. Back to testing then...

None that are public. CU1 should be out soon if they stick with their planned 3 month release cycle though.

So they could fix that one and bugger something else...

Of course that's possible and yes they've certainly had a couple of regression issues with past CUs, but why the negativity though? This is what happens when you have a product well in excess of 10 million lines of code (that was ConfigMgr 2007 even, I'm sure 2012 probably has much more) that has tons of functionality and flexibility. Cars get recalled all the time, you have to back-space when mis-spelling words all the time (I know I do). Things simply are not perfect and expecting them to be is going to cause you endless grief and misery.
