    @MikeGimi, We’ve now uploaded the 2004 WinPE version to our website.

    Please give that a go and verify if your issue gets resolved. There is no public release for WinPE 2002 of ADK.

    But the screenshot that you affixed to your previous message, leads me to believe that the error is related to clearing the required PXE deployment flag.

    Right-click on the machine in SCCM, and then choose “Clear Required PXE Deployments“. [See image]

    Few things to verify (If you have not done so already).

    The version of Windows 10 Assessment and Deployment Kit installed on your SCCM server should be 10.1.19041.1.

    DO NOT tick the box to “Reload the boot image with the current Windows PE version from the Windows ADK” (Image attached).

    For PXE boot of new devices (as discussed before), deploy an empty task sequence with the sccmtspsi boot image to the “ALL UNKNOWN COMPUTERS” collection.


DCOM hardening issue.

This application fails to authenticate with WMI on the SCCM server because Microsoft has not yet hardened DCOM on their Windows Preinstallation Environment. We are working on a different approach, but it will only be released during the first quarter of 2024. But until that time, the only workaround will be to uninstall the update corresponding to KB5004442.
