SCCM OSD – Restart a task sequence wizard in WinPE without rebooting

SystemCenter logo

If you have started a task sequence in Configuration Manager and you hit a problem, the last thing you want to do is to have to go through the reboot process back into Windows PE.

So, if you want to just restart the task sequence without rebooting, carry out the following steps:

  • Press F8 to bring up the command prompt (which will also stop the computer automatically rebooting
  • Run the following command: X:\smsb\ini\386\TsBootShell.exe

You should now find that your task sequence has restarted.

  1. I would note that once you do this, you MUST leave that DOS window open until that the Task Sequence is ready to reboot. If you close the DOS window, the system will immediately reboot regardless of what the task Sequence is doing.
