FAILED USB DEPLOYMENT - Invalid root in registry key "HKLM\TEMP_SYSTEM\Setup\SystemSetupInProgress" when deploying an image from USB flash drive

09/24/2018 1005 views
I created a USB flash drive image via K2000 and now I receive the following error...Invalid root in registry key "HKLM\TEMP_SYSTEM\Setup\SystemSetupInProgress"
The following image works via deployment from the IPv4 network but NOT via USB flash drive.
It is identical to the following screen capture EXCEPT the Script is from the E: drive

  • I'm also questioning that the system/image is deploying from the E: drive when the K2000 USB boot flash is already assigned the letter E:
  • -Are you deploying to a Legacy or a UEFI Image?

    -What Partition(s) was(were) captured for this Image?

    -You get the error when the KACE engine is unable to locate that registry file, either because is corrupted, or not there, or something is preventing access to it.
  • RESOLVED...Someone formatted the image flash drives FAT32 instead of NTFS...once that was done, image worked.
