Deployment Workbench hangs during ISO Media Creation

A colleague of mine was attempting to build an ISO of a Windows 7 image from our MDT share and ran into a problem. No matter what computer he tried to build the ISO media imageimage, during the ISO creation process the progress bar was stuck at 68% and would not continue.

As it turns out, the root cause was a corrupt driver file in the Out-Of-Box Drivers folder in the MDT share. Deleting the driver resolved the issue.

Take a look at the following link on Microsoft’s MDT forums for details on how to troubleshoot this problem, as well as how to fix it:
