MDT 2010: Targeting Image Destinations

Many people encounter an issue applying their WIM images to the correct partition. I’ve seen this many times in the forums when people say that their images are not deploying to various disks or partitions etc as they want/expect. Although I have never experienced this phenomenon myself the property definitions listed below should help. You can use the property definitions to target the correct disk, volume and partition.

Use this example in your task sequences or customsettings.ini to correctly target your image destinations:


You can use the Diskpart tool to locate the correct disk/volume id’s. For example, run Diskpart from an elevated command prompt and type:

List disk
List Volume

You can find the Diskpart technical reference on Technet here.
