After upgrading to 7.5, the winpe image is re-created and boots, but is unable to run tasks or communicate with the Console.
The PectAgent log within Preboot may show the following error:
[2014/01/09 09:53:38.239 288:300 2] AgentGlobals.h:112 RegisterLibrary: LoadLibrary Failed to load x:\program files\Symantec\Deployment\AeXPackageDelivery.dll

AeXPackageDelivery.dll file isn't in the preboot environment at all or is still the 7.1 version.
Cause is unknown at this time.
1. Check your SMP Server to see if it has the following 7.5 files according to the WinPE architecture (x86 or x64 branch of the path), by checking their property details:
C:\Program Files\Altiris\Deployment\BDC\bootwiz\oem\DS\winpe\x86\Base\Program Files\Symantec\Deployment\pectagent.exe
C:\Program Files\Altiris\Deployment\BDC\bootwiz\oem\DS\winpe\x86\Base\Program Files\Symantec\Deployment\AeXPackageDelivery.dll
