SCCM OSD Log File Locations

I may be late with this but it's for my reference more than anything.  SCCM OSD can be a hair tearing process at the bet of times.  Should you ever need to troubleshoot it MS don't exactly make it easy finding the files either.

He is where you will find the log files at various points throughout the whole OSD process as they do move dependant on which stage you are up to...

WindowsPE, before HDD format:              x:\windows\temp\smstslog\smsts.log
WindowsPE, after HDD format:                 x:\smstslog\smsts.log
Windows, SCCM agent not installed:       c:\_SMSTaskSequence\Logs\Smstslog\smsts.log
Windows, SCCM agent installed:               c:\windows\system32\ccm\logs\Smstslog\smsts.log
Windows x64, SCCM agent installed:       c:\windows\sysWOW64\ccm\logs\Smstslog\smsts.log
Task Sequence completed:                           c:\windows\system32\ccm\logs\smsts.log
Task Sequence completed x64:                   c:\windows\sysWOW64\ccm\logs\smsts.log

Don't forget - use Trace32 to view these log files - it makes it miles easier....
