failed to request client SCCM task sequence

The machine will restart as soon as displaying "preparing network connections" in WinPE when deploying Operating System deployment using SCCM 2012 task sequence.
This happens mainly when re-imaging machine specially after a motherboard replacement.
Reviewing SMSTS.log (From X:\Windows\Temp\SMSTSlog\) will show the following error msg.
reply has no message header marker
Failed to get client identity (80004005)
failed to request client

If we check the date and time of failed event in the log file, it will have a wrong date and time.
In my test environment it showed as 01/01/2013. Correct the date and time then test.
This time it should work without any issue.
