Why do migrations fail on Lenovo's with Rescue and Recovery when using OS Deployment?

Technote (troubleshooting)


When using OS Deployment migrations may fail on Lenovo machines.

Resolving the problem

The presence of Lenovo Rescue and Recovery prevents successful use of Microsoft Deployment Toolkit by locking the MININT folder. While some versions of Rescue and Recovery can be stopped to allow the process to continue, others must be uninstalled. IBM recommends uninstalling this product before initiating OS migrations.
