New Hotfix: Task sequence fails with an "0x80004005" error code in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 – The Configuration Manager Support Team Blog – Site Home – TechNet Blogs

Here’s a KB article we published today on ConfigMgr 2007. This one describes a hotfix/update we released that addresses an issue where a Task sequence fails with an "0x80004005" error code in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2:

=====

Consider the following scenario:

  • You create a prestaged installation media in System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3.
  • You create a task sequence on a System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) site server.
  • You configure the task sequence to use the prestaged installation media to deploy an operating system to a computer.
  • The boot image in the prestaged installation media is newer than the assigned boot image in the task sequence.

In this scenario, the newer boot image is not installed and the whole task sequence fails. Additional, the following error code is logged in the Smsts.log file:

Failed to install WinPE. Code(0x80004005)
