"Unable to create the ramdisk device" error


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have a test laptop, HP Probook 450 G3, running on Wifi, which I'm using to test deploying Windows 10 to clients on WiFi. Using a deployment package that was successful on HP Compaq Pro 6200/6300s, we're getting an error in the event logs during deployment:

Log Name:      Application
Source:        SmartDeploy Console/Client Service
Date:          4/16/2019 2:48:46 PM
Event ID:      0
Task Category: None
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      ------------------
Description:
Exception:
Unable to create the ramdisk device in the BCD.
   at Common.SmartDeploy.Managers.BootManager.#R6f()
   at Common.SmartDeploy.Managers.BootManager.ManageBootWim(Boolean manageBootFiles)
 

The laptop never reboots or starts the deployment. As far as I can see, the contents of C:\SmartDeploy on that system are the same as on the successful ones. I figure it's either WiFi or something specific about that laptop model. SD Enterprise is on the latest version (2.0.3040). Does this ring any bells?

We use Symantec Endpoint Protection on everything. SEP hasn't been interfering with the wired desktop clients so far, but the laptops have a slightly different set of policies. I ran a couple more tests. First, I put the test laptop in the same SEP group as the successful clients. Next, I uninstalled SEP completely. Unfortunately, I got the "unable to create the ramdisk device" error each time again.

I'll see if I can find another ProBook 450 to test on....
