  1. I've got a Background Image that I've applied which looks good in Landscape mode, but when I change to Portrait mode the image doesn't compress it crops the image and looks awful. Is there a way to have the image display correctly no matter the orientation?
  2. I believe I've resolved the issue. I used a Domain Policy to turn of Microsoft Accounts so users cannot login using one or create one.
  3. After I've joined a Windows 8.1 machine to our domain I've noticed that at the login screen I now see 2 "Other user" icons. 1 asks for my email address and is the default when I logout of the machine. The other is the one I wish to default when a user logs out, I'd also like it to be the only option when users first login to the machine. Is there a simple way of doing this?
  4. As I'm running this HTA within the Operating System and require User interaction this was the only method I could get it to work as expected. SCCM Nuts and Bolts provided the solution https://plus.google.com/105132092500423486001/posts/9aCA7LUVpuv
  5. anyweb. I've tried using the .VBS code you specified above which successfully closes the Progress Bar, but it also hides/closes my HTA. I've included the code below. What am I doing wrong? Option Explicit Dim ReturnCode Dim objShell : Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") Dim GetScriptPath : GetScriptPath = Left(WScript.ScriptFullName, InstrRev(WScript.ScriptFullName, "\", -1, 1) - 1) 'Dim oTSProgressUI '********** '* Hide TSProgressUI * '********** 'Set oTSProgressUI = Wscript.CreatObject("Microsoft.SMS.TSProgressUI") 'oTSProgressUI.CloseProgressDialog() '********** '* MAIN * '********** ReturnCode = objShell.Run ("cmd /c " & GetScriptPath & "\ServiceUI.exe %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\mshta.EXE " & GetScriptPath & "\promptforpassword.hta", 1, True) Wscript.Quit(ReturnCode) '************** '* END MAIN * '**************
  6. I'm looking for a method which would allow the techies to change the Partition Schemes based on Data size, number of Physical Drives as part of an OSD Task Sequence. Is this possible through the use of HTA's? Thanks
  7. I've installed the SCCM 2007 client on Windows 8.0, it's reporting back and receiving advertisements without a problem. After I upgrade to Windows 8.1 the client repairs itself after approx 5minutes and that's it. After the repair it no longer reports to or receives advertisements from SCCM 2007. Has anyone encountered this? Or know what it could be that's preventing the client from working. Thanks
  8. Jorgen, Just wondering if you have a sample/example of this vbscript wrapper? Thanks
  9. We've purchased a number of devices MS Surface for example that come with Windows 8 Pro. or Windows 8.1 Pro. I'd like to "upgrade" these machines to Windows 8.1 Ent.. There's conflicting information out there about whether it's possible and/or the limitations. From my own testing I can perform the "upgrade" by running the setup program manually and running through the wizard. Unfortunately it deletes all installed applications, but I can recover from that if that's the only way to go. If possible I'd like to Run the "upgrade" silently while setting certain configurations. I'm attempting to do this using an unattend.xml file from within the existing Pro Installation, however I keep getting prompted to keep existing settings or start fresh. Is there someway I can overcome these initial dialogs? Is there someway I can perform the "upgrade" and keep all install applications? Thanks
  10. I'm migrating some 2003 SP2 server from WSUS to SCCM 2007 R3. I've setup Update lists and deployment packages etc.. However I'm finding that I can't install 9 updates even though they appear in the list, other updates are installing fine. KB2719985, KB265592, KB2686509 are an example. If I manually run the patch from the Dist. point it installs and I can see it in "Add or Remove Programs". Why aren't these patches installing when run through SCCM.
  11. No I was hoping I could just use the Task Sequence Wizard from the share. I've found in the past installing the client on a workgroup machine takes an extremely long time before it reports back to SCCM.
  12. I'm trying to use a Task Sequence to configure a new machine out of the box without applying an OS Image. I'm happy with the OS that comes with the machine, I'd just like to configure it Join to the Domain, apply patches, SCCM client etc. To that end I'm opening the TSMBautorun.exe from a share and selecting the Appropriate Task Sequence. The Task Sequence begins, almost immediately I receieve a "0x80070005" error and the Task Sequence stops. 1. Should I be able to run a Task Sequence using the existing Operating System? 2. Should I be able to run the Task Sequence Wizard from a Share? 3. Is there another way I should go about this? Thanks
