Prior to embarking on in-depth troubleshooting processes, review the following items and ensure that any associated requirements have been met:

·     Installation issues can result if all software and hardware prerequisites have not been met.

·     MDT uses the tools from the Windows XP file as part of the LTI process. This process uses the System Preparation Tool (Sysprep) to properly prepare the Windows XP master image before capturing the operating system in a WIM file. Copy the file into the deployment_share\Tools\platform folder, where deployment_share is the name of the share and platform is the name of the platform folder. MDT will find the file and extract the necessary files.
