Recently I am trying to fix one problem os SCCM 2012 R2 so I reinstalled it couple of times, however It brough me more problems.

This wasnt happening first time, now I cant get it right. The problem happens when you add boot image and it tells you:

The add Boot Image Wizard complete with errors.

Error: Data Source Information

Source location: \\8807cm\Share\WIm\Win8.1\64\boot.wim

Boot Image: 1 - Microsoft Windows PE (x64)

 Error: Package Information

Name: boot

 Error: Errors

The specified file can not be imported. Make sure the file is not read only and you have read and write access to it.


Check log : \\<Server>\SMS_<CODE>\Logs\SMSProv.log, I found this:

ERROR> failed to mount wim file err=3 SMS Provider 3/12/2014 8:11:46 AM 1900 (0x076C)

I couldnt resolve it yestarday however When I woke up this morning I realized something I missed could cause it, the MDT integration tool. SOunds reasonable right? Lets Install the MDT integration tool now.


First download MDT 2013 from microsoft then follow this beutiful article:

In short quickly start DeploymentWorkben and go to COmponents, find Windows Automated Installation kit(x64) and (x86), download both.

It may take a while.

Once the components are downloaed and installed.

Create a new Deployment Share, Once finished go to Configure ConfigMgr Integration and finish it.


Eventually I found it is all because the Server Version of Windows 2012 is standard not enterprise, which caused all the hassle. After reinstall SCCM 2012 R2 on Enterprise version of Windows. Problem gone.
