I've been following the tutorials to deploy a fresh instance of Windows 7 via MDT/WDS. I've injected the proper drivers, configured the sequences, but every system fails at 50% of "installing OS" with return code -2147467359 0x80004005.

Research on "unknown errors" is proving unsuccessful.

Advice is welcome. Logs can be provided

Nevermind. Determined that it was the Dell storage drivers in the boot image that were killing everything. Removed them, and success.

Now working on VS2015 deployment via MDT :)
