When trying to deploy an OS with SCCM, you can get the following error:
Task Sequence XXX Failed with the error code 0x80004005. Please contact your administrator….
0x80004005 is quite a generic error, but to fix this try the following:
- Updating SCCM, as there is a patch for the Task Sequence Failed error if you are using SCCM 2007 SP2
- Partitioning the disk of the computer you are trying to deploy the OS to
- Capturing the drivers correctly for the OS install
- Check that the date and time are correct in the computers BIOS
Hopefully this fixes the Task Sequence error, but if you find a different fix for error code 0x80004005, please leave a comment to help others 🙂
