failed to run task sequence 0x80004005

SCCM Task Sequence Error 0x80004005

If you start a Task Sequence and you get the error “0x80004005” before you can choice a specifice Task Sequence name.

Check the SMSTS.log. It’s located at: x:\windows\temp\smstslog\smsts.log

In my case the bios date/time was not correct.
Fix it before you start the task sequence again!

You can fix it to press F8:

Than check with command the date:


And with “time” the BIOS time

  1. Thanks for your publication. I also feel that laptop computers have gotten more and more popular lately, and now are sometimes the only sort of computer utilised in a household. The reason is that at the same time potentially they are becoming more and more reasonably priced, their processing power keeps growing to the point where they’re as potent as desktop computers from just a few years ago.
