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


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.
