Receiving Error during deployment

Recommended Posts


Ran the most recent batch of windows updates on my source machine and recaptured the VIM, but now when I attempt to deploy, I am getting the "Failed to provision one or more disks" error followed by an exception.  Has anyone had this problem before or any tips for how to fix this?

Try cleaning the existing drive.


  • Boot to your boot media
  • Click the link to open a command prompt in the SmartDeploy splash screen


Perform the following commands: 

  • Diskpart
  • Select Disk 0
  • Clean (this will wipe the selected disk)
  • Create partition primary (this will create a partition to apply the image to)
  • Format FS=NTFS Quick
  • Assign letter C
  • Active
  • Exit


Restart the machine and attempt to deploy again and let us know your results.
