More 3.6 Issues - Stuck on "Set Engine Run Key"
I'm deplying a Windows 7 x64 WIM sysprepped image now, and I'm getting stuck on the "set engine run key" task, even before any post install tasks take place.
I read this article:
However, it's the same image I've been using for the past year for our x64 machines. It has the NIC drivers already installed, and the driver feed already checked.

I had been experiencing the same issue after the upgrade from 3.5 to 3.6.
After logging a ticket with Dell and doing everything that they asked, deleting and re-adding nic drivers, checking for and IP addresses on start up, attempting to run various post-install tasks etc, I still could not get it to go past the Set Engine Run Key task.
Stumbling across this the below article this morning, it states way down the bottom that the run once converter is no longer needed in 3.6 because of the new task scheduler. I still had the "run one converter" executing at the Mid-level task from when I upgraded from 3.5. Didn't even know it needed to be removed! I have since deleted it and it now works like a charm! Hopefully Dell can update their knowledge base to reflect this.
Hope this helps others in the future.
