MDT Error: “Media Not Found”

This error came up when I attempted to boot a PC with a Windows PE boot disk I created using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 Update 1 (MDT).

When the lite touch script attempted to run, it bombed out with the following message;

Title: ” Media not found ”
Message: “Please insert the CD, DVD or USB to complete the deployment process.”.

Turns out that this is because a MININT directory still exists on the hard drive of the target PC.

By simply reformatting the drive from the Administrator prompt using ‘format c: /fs:ntfs /q’ and then rebooting back into Windows PE again, the problem was resolved.

I presume that this will apply to MDT 2010 as well.
