How Can I Fix the Boot Drive not Found? Help

I have difficulty deploying a Windows 10 Enterprise image to a Dell Latitude 7290 via MDT 2013. I created a FAT32 EFI boot partition at the beginning of the TS. But on reboot, the TS fails and displays. And I can't select the partition after converting to GPT using Diskpart. Are there any MDT experts who can explain why the boot drive is not visible on reboot?

Boot drive not found refers to the Windows operating system cannot find a drive to boot from. Dell says MDT 2013 Update 2 requires manual editing of the formatting script to image through UEFI. Here are the simple steps:

  • Copy and paste "Format and Partition Disk" from an older task sequence.
  • Disable and paste "Format and Partition Disk" in the BIOS and UEFI.
  • Internal MDT scripts instantly switch the drive to GPT mode, enabling UEFI compatibility.

If this method does not work, it is also possible that the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector on the bootable disc is corrupted, and you need to rebuild the MBR with a professional disc management tool.
