SCCM: Image Capture Wizard has failed with error code (0x80004005)

by on Jan.11, 2008, under Microsoft, SCCM/SMS2003

Here is an error that I’ve received when I was trying to capture an image of a PC for SCCM. This error appears straight away after you click on finish button in Image capture wizard. The log does not give any clues.

Here is the screenshot of an error.
Image Capture Wizard has failed with error code (0×80004005)

In my case it was caused by SMS2003 client on the PC.(The PC was build using SMS2003)
Removing SMS2003 client solved the problem.

    I just had the same error, but it was a sysprep.ini issue. I was using an old one, but once I used a clean one, the error cleared itself. Hope this helps….

    I am also having the same issue but the capture fails half way through. That is I see it copying the files over to a shared directory and the it just fails???. Mmmm not sure whats happening there.

    Same issue here, sysprep.ini was causing the errors. I deleted the content and reran the capture successfully

    check the certificate on the pxe service point and the boot certificate. also make a new capture cd and boot cd to try to renew or creat a new certicate….then recapture the image…etc.
