let me start by saying what a fantasic resource this site is for IT admins to share knowledge. I have been able to find answers to many questions on here.
I'm having a bit of trouble trying to capture and build a Windows 8 deployment solely using SCCM 2012 SP1 though. I have been able to achive my goals using MDT stand alone, but I'd really like to be able to use SCCM as my one stop solution for most needs.
I've created a reference Windows 8 system in Hyper V and customised it to my liking. My main goal is to preserve the start screen look and tile placement for all users, so I am wanting to use the "copyprofile" setting during the specialize phase of deployment. The rest of my customizations are handled by group policy.
So I have my reference system, I then use the capture media iso created in SCCM to capture the wim file. I then import the wim and build a task sequence to deploy this image. In doing so I create a package to hold my unattended.xml that only changes the copy profile setting and make sure that is deployed as part of the task sequence during the apply operating system section.
Now, the problem is once the deployment completes and I log on as the local administrator all of my start screen customisations are gone, I'm looking at a blank start screen and searching for any app returns no results. Everything from the start screen is wiped during deployment.
Has anyone else encountered this? I must be doing something slightly wrong because some form of copying of the local admin profile must be happening, just not with any of my customisations and in fact wipes the entire start screen blank.
Should I just go through the process of captuing the initial wim manually instead of using the sccm capture media?
Any help would be appreciated
