SCCM OSD DiskPart Commands Troubleshooting

0

Sometimes during SCCM OSD you might need to use the diskpart commands to manually format or clean the hard disk. This is to fix error such as Task sequence has failed with the error code 0x800700A1.

Performing these actions is not always necessary, however it can definitely help if you’re having problems with SCCM OSD. This should get you back to an almost ‘out of the box’ configuration.

DiskPart commands help you to manage your PC’s drives (disks, partitions, volumes, or virtual hard disks). You can read more about DiskPart commands here.

To use the diskpart commands during SCCM OSD, perform a PXE boot, and before you select the Task Sequence, hit F8. From the command window that opens perform the following commands.
