Here’s a quick list of the links from my TechEd Europe session this morning.  More info to follow over the next few weeks!

“KISS—start simple, and work your way toward complexity.” – Rob Marshall

“Automate process to import drivers and create driver packages.”Kent Agerlund and “Automate, Automate, Automate. Manually building images is not what anyone should be paid for. It’s a waste of money and time.” – Jason Sandys

“Add CMTrace in the path statement for WinPE, and essential files to your boot.wim.”Mike Terrill

“Access hidden task sequences on-demand.”Niall Brady

“Use MDT Lite Touch to build your reference image.”Johan Arwidmark

“Implement a Pre-Flight Checklist.”Troy Martin

“Restrict TS to reduce risk. Configure deployment for only boot media and PXE.” – John Marcum and Todd Hemsell

“Always use MDT integration with the Validate step to prevent the ultimate oops.” – Tim Mintner

“You cannot import this boot image. Only finalized boot images are supported” ConfigMgr 2012 R2

Problem

You get the following error when adding a boot image to SCCM 2012 R2

“You cannot import this boot image.  Only finalized boot images are supported.”

Solution

Check if you have McAfee VirusScan Enterprise installed on your SCCM server.

If yes, make sure you have these exclusions configured.  In my case, I also had to temporarily un-install McAfee VirusScan.
