Add driver package not applied in OSD server 2008R2 and OSD error 31 on Server 2012R2

last days i had the following symptoms/failures with OSD in SCCM 2012 r2:

– Migrated server 2008 r2 task sequence deployment has failed to Run. VMWare VMXNET 3 drivers dont get injected or applied in the OS. Ethernet controller is missing in device management.

– New server 2012 r2 deployement fails with error code 31. Exiting with code 0x80004005 Windows setup failed, code 31.

– After troubleshooting for a day i wasnt able to build and capture task sequences with Operating System Installers in sccm 2012 r2.


I thought build and capture wizard had a bug. after googling i found the following article. wow Microsoft just changed the working!

see this article. This is a nice article also. Helps you with OSD

What’s New in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1

The build and capture task sequence was updated to apply an operating system image instead of running Setup.exe for installation. You can still run Setup.exe for Windows 8 deployments by editing the task sequence in the task sequence editor. :(:(:(
After selecting “Apply operating system from a captured image” instead of “Apply operating system from an installation source” and run the deployment it was successful!
