"Advertise" action not available after Re-installing OEMDeployment.msi


Hello, I met the problem about "Advertise" has been missed on Task Sequence after re-install OEMDeployment.msi
Steps to Recreate:
  1. Install the OEMDeployment.msi to the SCCM Server.
  2. Create a task sequence normally, there is Advertise item as right-click the task sequence.
  3. Uninstall the OEMDeployment.msi from the SCCM server.
  4. Re-install the OEMDeployment.msi on the SCCM server again。
  5. Right-click the task sequence that created by step2, "Advertise" has been missed.

Enabling or disabling this action menu item is not a function of the integration framework. Either there is a bug in the code ConfigMgr code or something about the task sequence is causing an error that ConfigMgr is interpreting as a reason not to enable advertising the task sequence.

In order to debug this issue, I need full logs from ConfigMgr and the installer.

One reason may be the boot image for that task sequence is removed. Please check the properties of the boot image under advanced check whether there is a boot image associated for this task sequence.

The boot image is not removed after reinstall.

Boot images are not removed on uninstall because it may cause serious customer dissatisfaction when any task sequences linked to that boot image are now broken.
