SCCM image fails to install any Non-MS softwares

Issue: While imaging we found some systems are failing to install Non-MS software which are not part of the image,  installing during task sequence.

Description:   if you check the  "Programs and features" will find something like below



Resolution:

smsts.log will tell you Client installation fails to install  that means if client is getting failed then none of Non-MS software will install and you will realize during running any image , task sequence  failing at "initializing configuration manager client"



Method 1  Check if the "Software Update Client Installation method" is Enabled,. Disabled it if its is enabled.

Method2: Never image any system with secondary HD attached to it and enabling from BIOS as well  , sometimes it also causes the problem and that's exactly were the issue failing in our case.
