We are using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 – Operating System Deployment feature. We create task sequence to deploy Windows 7 and install software updates. In my scenario tasks sequence will install more than 60 software updates.
Deployment start and task sequence hang and stop responding when Downloading 1 of 75 Updates (0% Complete) in Install Software Updates action.
According to Microsoft Support KB2509007 This issue occurs because a deadlock occurs when the task sequence retrieves content locations for the updates.
In other scenario this issue may occur when large numbers of software updates are applied via Install Software Update action in task sequence.
To resolve this issue install hotfix from KB2509007 and follow instructions that explain how to install the KB2509007 hotfix during a ConfigMgr 2007 OSD task sequence.
In other scenario you can solve this issue by reduce number of software updates applied via Install Software Update action.
