The following is a list of known issues, limitations, and recommendations that relate to ZTI deployments using Configuration Manager 2007 R3:

·     When deploying a non–English-language target operating system, the installation method prompts for user language, because the template for the unattend.xml file contains settings for United States English (en-us). To work around this problem, perform one of the following tasks:

·     Modify the unattend.xml template file to reflect the language of the target operating system.

·     Configure the KeyboardLocale, UserLocale, and UILanguage properties in the CustomSettings.ini file or the MDT DB to reflect the language of the target operating system.

·     When deploying computers using Configuration Manager 2007 R3 and backing up the computer data locally, computers with two partitions may not be able to retain the backup. To prevent backups from being removed, save to a network location instead of to a local drive.

·     In a Configuration Manager 2007 R3 task sequence, the Format and Partition task might not run successfully on a computer if it has only one unformatted partition. To work around this issue, either remove the partition or format it.

·     While installing the server roles, Configuration Manager 2007 R3 might display a prompt for DLLs needed to complete the role installation. If this happens, specify a valid location for the required files. To avoid this step, add a step earlier in the task sequence that copies the required DLLs to the Windows Setup files folder defined in the registry. This folder location is defined in the SourcePath registry value, located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup.
