TPMfOsd getting errors during deployment, Unable to reach WPE environment

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Why is my deployment failing at 73% complete with the error message:

Unable to reach WPE environment from AGENT_WPE:Â (loop detected(2): :
AGENT_WPE:AGENT_WPE) ?

Answer

This failure results from the profile being created from a Microsoft WIM image that is missing some required files, specifically a boot file. The failure occurs after the operating system is installed, when it tries to boot on the OS. The solution is to create a new unattended setup profile using a Microsoft installation DVD or ISO.
