I’m relatively new to running SCCM in Native Mode, and the other day I came across an issue I hadn’t seen before. In short, the problem was that my clients would boot into Windows PE (WinPE), but would not begin their advertised task sequence. WinPE would think there’s nothing to do, and subsequently the client would reboot. After some investigation, I found the error “Failed to Download Policy (Code 0x8004005)” in the SMSTS.LOG file. And this is how I fixed the issue…..
