Failed to Run Task Sequence error in SCCM 2012

Asked By 90 points N/A Posted on -

Hello, I am getting the following  error from SCCM 2012 while trying to Deploy a task sequence. I am using the latest drivers available (it is a beta version) on SCCM 2012 RC test server. The packages have been created successfully and can be seen within the SCCM 2012 Console. The packages were distributed to the distribution point then added to an existing task sequence. Please give me a solution for this error.

Failed to run task sequence

The task sequence cannot be run because the program files for SCO00015 cannot be located on a distribution point. For more information, contact your system administrator or help desk operator.

Failed to Run Task Sequence error in SCCM 2012


Hello Janis,

To resolve that error, you will need to follow up the steps needed for installing Task Sequence, and then after that you will need to press F8 on your keyboard. When the error comes up you will just use the following in the DOS Box:

  • Diskpart
  • Select Disk 0
  • Clean

After you have finished with those steps, the boot process should be able to work just fine. The error therefore could probably be caused by wrong partitioning of the Disk in order for WinPE to handle it. So just try that and see if it works.

Hope this helps.

I believe that you are encountering this problem because you might have created Site boundaries and a site Boundary group but didn’t add Site Server to the specific boundary group.

You also need to create the association of distribution point with newly created Boundary group. You can perform this operation in (Administration/security/distribution points).

I hope this helps and provides a solution.
