SCCM failed to create task sequence media error

SCCM failed to create task sequence media error

Error : Failed to create media

The detail of the error in my case was:

Beginning media generation
Failed to find the volume for system partition, it might be drive letterless
Marking partitions active is only supported for MBR disks.
Unable to activate partition (0×80004001)
Error formatting volume G:\ (0×80004001)
Failed to create media (0×80004001)
CreateTsMedia failed with error 0×80004001, details=””

To fix: We need to re-partition the USB media and be sure it has marked as active. I used diskpart to do that. Steps are below.

Run diskpart with administrative rights

list disk (find your USB disk number)
select disk 2 (2 here is the number of the USB disk listed in list disk command)
WARNING: The next command (clean) will wipe the disk you have just selected above.
Please be sure you have selected the correct disk.
clean (to clean partitions)
create partition primary size=16384 (to create a 16GB primary partition)
list par (to list partitions in the selected disk)
select partition 1 (select the partition you have just created, there should be only one)
active (mark the partition as active)
assign letter=G (any avail. letter)
format fs=ntfs quick label=”TSMedia” (format the partition quickly with NTFS and naming (label is up to you))
exit (done)




Now you can try to create your USB media again.

Hope it helps or gives an idea.
