Task Sequence Error (0x80004005)
Running a tasks sequence from within Windows failed with the below message.
Task Sequence: <task sequence name> has failed with the error code (0x80004005). For more information, please contact your system administrator or helpdesk operator.
This will happen when you are running a task sequence that has a task for USMT 4.0 hardlink backup on a computer that has BitLocker enabled. The task sequence fails at the Restart in Windows PE task.
Solution: Temporarily suspend protection for the BitLocker Drive Encryption. You do need to have local administrative privileges to do this.
