      Hi Prachi,
      where are you capturing to? If it is a network drive can you try to capture to local drive and see what you get?

    I don’t see any distribution points in the drop down box under the step 4 above. Where would i go to create these?

    You need to copy the required Boot image to Distribution point in order to see the Distribution server in the Task Sequence.
    Go to System Center Congiuration Manger -> Computer Management -> Operating System Deploymend-> boot images and expand boot images node and select the required boot image and right click and select manage distribution point to choose the distribution server to copy the boot image.

    Also ensure that your Antivirus is turned off. This could lock the folder where the files is imported to. I had the same issue and that was what solved it after serveral hours of headache.

      You don’t need deploy,cab for Vista or Win 7 as they have sysprep already build in. It’s only for WinXP.
