SCCM: Setting wizard error: There are no task sequences available for this computer.


I was trying OS deployment on a server multiple times, it refused find assigned task sequences. I double checked target server’s SMBIOS id and MAC address in assigned server. It keep failing with this error:

There are no task sequences available for this computer.

If you look in the SMSTS.log you may also see the following error:

No assigned task sequence.
Setting wizard error: There are no task sequences available for this computer.

It turned out to be there is a duplicate SMBIOS id exists in SCCM database. Of course I am trying to rebuilding a existing server…..God Dammit!!! Don’t they tell in plain English there is a duplicate BIOS id exists in the error messages. Another Microsoft error wasted my time.

I have deleted the previous server name from SCCM computer collection and retried with great success.

Reference information: OSD Task Sequence fails with "There are no task sequences available for this computer" if multiple machines have the same SMBIOS GUID
