Vista SP2 RTM and Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1

Last Updated on Tuesday, 29 September 2009 03:31 Written by Mire_B Tuesday, 7 July 2009 12:59

I’m not going to get into details but recently I had to deploy Windows Vista SP2 using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008  Update 1. It wasn’t into production, just a test (don’t ask!).  Cutting it short, Microsoft has a little something to make your experience better: KBID971943.

After you import Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 into Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1, you notice a lack of support for Service Pack 2 in the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit. This includes a lack of support for Service Pack 2 in the Supported Platforms list and the lack of language packs during Lite Touch deployment.

Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1 was released before the Service Pack 2 release. Therefore, Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1 does not include support for Windows Vista SP2 and for Windows Server 2008 SP2.

To work around this problem, administrators can manually add Service Pack 2 support to the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit by updating the ZTISupportedPlatforms.xml and DeployWiz_Initialization.vbs files.
