CM12 R2 TS after upgrade: Failed to resume task sequence (0x800700EA) error

2:15 pm in 2012R2, bootimages, capture, CM12, CM12 R2, CM12 SP1, ConfigMgr 2012, configmgr 2012 R2, ConfigMgr 2012 SP1, Cumulative Update, Deployment, OSD, SCCM 2012, sccm 2012 R2, SCCM 2012 R2, SCCM 2012 SP1, Task Sequence by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]


I upgraded one of my customers site from SP1 to R2 on a Monday morning and have hit a number of hurdles. I have discovered that my customers OSD Task sequences were not functioning correctly. Everything seems to go fine, until it reaches the Setup Windows and ConfigMgr, and then once that step is complete, it reboots and I’m left on the ctrl+alt+del screen, with the computer joined to domain but no additional steps performed.

The TS does end with an error “Failed to resume task sequence (0x800700EA) error” , as if the new client gets installed and it just ends the TS!

**** Remember **** –> Support for Windows PE 3.1 boot images above of Windows ADK 8.1 is there as feature when upgraded to R2 !! **** Remember ****

I looked at my boot images and it looked good, but frankly the x64 boot image didn’t upgrade well and stayed to version 6.2.x instead of 6.3.x. I had a script to manually update it , but it didn’t like it so it failed again.

Created a new bootimage (x64) from scratch , updated my TaskSequence  to use the new bootimage and *BAM* , it worked again

Hope it Helps ,
