Failed to import the client certificate store (0x80092024) OSDSMPClient
This error occurs because an embedded NULL character is in the Friendly name property of a certificate. Security update 974571 prevents the action that imports the certificate when its Friendly name property has an embedded NULL character. Therefore, the certificate cannot be imported.

Install KB977203 during a task sequence
For operating system deployments, the KB977203 hotfix must be installed during a ConfigMgr 2007 OSD task sequence in the Setup Windows and ConfigMgr task. Otherwise, the problem will continue to occur while the task sequence is executed. The hotfix cannot be installed by using an "install software" task. Doing that would cause the ConfigMgr 2007 client service to stop, which will cause the task sequence to fail.
Note If the client update that is described in Knolwedge Base article 977384 is being installed during the task sequence, it is not necessary to also install this client update, because this update is included as part of that update.
To install the KB977203 hotfix during a ConfigMgr 2007 OSD task sequence, use the PATCH= option that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

To install the KB977203 hotfix during a ConfigMgr 2007 OSD task sequence, follow these steps:
In addition to installing the KB977203 hotfix during the Task Sequence, CCMCertFix.exe also has to be run. When CCMCertFix.exe runs depends on the deployment scenario that is occurring (replace or refresh or new computer). The following steps show how to run CCMCerFix.exe for all deployment scenarios.
Note For replace scenarios, you only have to follow steps 1 through 5 for the task sequence that captures the data on the original computer. For the task sequence that restores the data on the new computer, follow all the steps.
