ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 issues with OSDPreseveDriveLetter

Ran into this issue when trying deploy an existing image – the image was created without the propertly OSDPreseveDriveLetter in the Build and Capture task sequence.

My deployment task sequence kept failing Setup Windows and Configmgr.
The CCM client installed on the system ended up broken

The error messages from ccmsetup.log

C:WINDOWSccmsetup{1AF71F68-6089-4211-ADDC-06DF40606141}client.msi installation failed. Error text: ExitCode: 1603
– Client installation has failed too many times. Ccmsetup will now abort.


– Add OSDPreseveDriveLetter=False to Build and Capture Task sequecen

1. Added the OSDPreseveDriveLetter=False in my deployment task sequecen
2. Added /forceinstall /SMSMP=FQDN /SMSSLP=FQDN to step Setup Windows and ConfigMgr

Error when trying to execute powershell script

command: Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
The x86 version can be found here: %windir%SysWOW64WindowsPowerShellv1.0
