HP ZBook 15 in RAID mode does not deploy correctly with ConfigMgr

I got a great tip from fellow OSD specialist Oskari Kampman who had been troubleshooting OS deployment to HP ZBook 15 (and a few others) with ConfigMgr 2007. It turned out to be a known issue, here is the info from Oskari:

I managed to find the root cause for this issue. It turns out it is a BIOS issue known by HP. Currently Windows 7 deployment with ConfigMgr 2007 R3 SP2 to HP ZBook 15 in RAID mode only works with BIOS version 1.03. Versions 1.04 and 1.06 fail because partitions can't be made bootable. Other versions of ConfigMgr are likely affected as well but we use the above version.

Same issue with HP 840 G1 and 820 G1, but HP hasn't been able to provide us with a working BIOS version for these models.

– 840, BIOS versions 1.04 and 1.05 fail
– 820, BIOS versions 1.05 and 1.06 fail

Thanks Oskari for letting me know, and for agreeing to let me post this info for others to find.

There were some fixes in SCCM 2012 R2 CU1 (and CU2) when deploying from USB sticks that "think" they are fixed disks.

Hi All, I have a problem with SCCM 2012 SP1 and my HP 840 G1. I can deploy a task sequence to this machine when booting the machine with PXE or a CDROM disk.But when booting the same image from USB disk the installation will fail.When executing the task sequence the partitioning fails and the image can't be restored to the hybrid disk. Anyone knows how to solve this ? The strange thing is that the partitioning does wipe my local disk and formats it also. But still an error occurred…SCCM even writes the SCCMLOGS directory to my disk…but still… Read more »

Update to my previous comment: It turns out the BIOS was set to AHCI, so please disregard the last comment.

Good news!

A customer of mine tested ConfigMgr deployment of HP ZBook 15 with BIOS version 1.07.
It succeeded 🙂

I am seeing (possibly the same issue) on both 840g1 and 9470m with SSD drives. OSD SCCM2012 SP1 fails during diskpart while attempting clean. DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.I'll check BIOS levels and post back…..

Hi Rukicc,

I'm using WinPE 3.1 and have injected the relevant drivers from these packages:

WinPE driver package (take only x86 or x64 drivers depending or your boot image architecture):

h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?sp4ts.oid=5405361&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3Didx%253D%257CswItem%253Dob_127784_1%257CswEnvOID%253D4059%257CitemLocale%253D%257CswLang%253D%257Cmode%253D%257Caction%253DdriverDocument&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken

Intel RST drivers for 840 G1 (works for 820 G1 as well):

x86
h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?sp4ts.oid=5405361&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3Didx%253D%257CswItem%253Dob_127865_1%257CswEnvOID%253D4053%257CitemLocale%253D%257CswLang%253D%257Cmode%253D%257Caction%253DdriverDocument&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken

This combinationn provides support (LAN, mass storage, USB 3.0) for HP ZBook 15, 840 G1, 820 G1 and a bunch of older HP hardware in our environment with little added size to the boot image. Of course your hardware could have different configuration, but you could give it a try.

I have problems with integrating LAN drivers into boot image for HP 840 G1, but looks that there is one more problem …..
