SCCM 2012 Client Install Fails on Windows 10 Build 10061 OS Deployment

Ran into a problem deploying build 10061 using SCCM 2012 R2.  It would get as far as the standard “Setup Windows and ConfigMgr” action, reboot into the full OS and fail to continue the OSD task sequence.  My test machine would join the domain and I could log in, but it was as if it just got bored and gave up on running the rest of the task sequence.

I would open up Control Panel and there would not be a Configuration Manager applet.  The client folder (C:\Windows\CCM) didn’t exist either.

So, I checked the CCMSETUP.log file and found that the client was failing to install.CCMSETUPlogClip

Did some searching and ran across this posting by Jörgen Nilsson.  This was my exact problem.

The workaround is to skip the Windows Update Agent installation.  So in my task sequence I added an ” /skipprereq:windowsupdateagent30-x64.exe” to the Installation Properties:CM12ClientInstall

And now I’m off and running.
