Environment

Release: 8.6 RUx

Cause

WinPE 11 22H2 is not currently supported. Windows 11 is not available in a 32-bit architecture, so the 32-bit version of Windows PE for Windows 11 is not supported. But Deployment solution looks for WindowsPE x86 which does not exist in the Windows kits folder.

Resolution

This issue is reported to the development team. Support for the new WinPE 11 structure is currently targeted for ITMS 8.7 release.

Workaround:

  • Copy the the prebootO.ini file from 'Program Files\Altiris\Deployment\BDC\bootwiz\' to another folder.
  • Right Click> Edit
  • Under '[WINPE11_X86]', change the INSTALLED=False to INSTALLED=True
  • Save.
  • Delete the main prebootO.ini file from 'Program Files\Altiris\Deployment\BDC\bootwiz\' and paste the new edited one there.
  • Try again the import WinPE11 process

Workaround 2:

Create a X86 folder with AMD64 content at the default ADK installation location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Windows Preinstallation Environment

(Clone the amd64 folder and re-name it to X86, or obtain the X86 folder from older ADK installation)

After that you can perform Import from console as normal
