  1. Hello, So it seems that this is a fairly common issue with Windows 10 1703 Creator's Update. When applying an image via task sequence, the task sequence progress window is hidden behind "Just a Moment..." screen. The image completes successfully but it just seems as if it is not progressing during this "Just a Moment..." screen. My Co-Worker found this thread and we have been attempting to apply the answer file but without success. https://amp.reddit.com/r/SCCM/comments/641te0/osd_progress_hidden_behind_a_just_a_moment_screen/diytpfa/ I also created my own answer file using WSIM. I've been using these 2 threads for capturing my WIM and applying the answer file. https://www.windows-noob.com/forums/topic/5070-how-can-i-capture-an-image-using-capture-media-in-configmgr-2012/ (Thank you AnyWeb!!) https://jacobsalmela.com/2016/03/30/how-to-image-a-computer-with-windows-10-using-dism/ What I've done so far: 1. Installed and Configured Windows on VM in Hyper-V. Copied VM (exported/imported) for use later as golden WIM. 2. Captured WIM using AnyWeb's walkthrough linked above. 3. I used this newly captured WIM in WSIM to create my answer file. 4. I then copied the unattend.xml to the original VM created in step 1 above. I copied to the location c:\Windows\System32\Sysprep 5. I ran the command from an elevated cmd prompt: sysprep.exe /generalize /oobe /unattend:Unattended.xml (The walkthrough linked above from jaobsalmela states to add /shutdown at the end of that command but I did not add that hoping that I would be able to run the capturemedia.iso created from ConfigMgr after this step. Unfortunately this step even without the /shutdown switch did in fact shut the VM down.) 6. I started the VM again and of course it went through the OOBE (The answer file worked because I was not prompted for any input, but it did the configuration). So now I tried to run the capturemedia.iso created in ConfigMgr and one of the first things it does is sysprep, which failed of course. This is where I am stuck. So I am trying to apply the unnattend.xml before I capture the WIM, how would I go about this? Maybe I'm doing the entire process wrong. I'm still fairly new at this, if I followed jacobsalmela post further, to me it looks as if it creates two different WIM files for two different partitions. I would not know what to do with these in the ConfigMgr task sequence. Thank you!
  2. select distinct SMS_G_System_NETWORK_ADAPTER.MACAddress, SMS_R_System.Name from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.Name = ##PRM:SMS_R_System.Name## order by SMS_R_System.Name Sorry for the late reply... I had to put this off due to more pressing issues. So the code above is what I have now for my query, but this doesn't pull up any MACs for a system at all. Again, my main goal here is to be able to enter a prompted value of Computer Name and get results of Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection MAC address, as well as, Wireless LAN Adapter MAC Address. Thank you all again for your help!
  3. Hello All, I've been using a PowerShell module to locate installed software on PCs. This post explains what I'm doing: http://blogs.technet.com/b/heyscriptingguy/archive/2011/12/14/use-powershell-to-find-and-uninstall-software.aspx This allows me to obtain the unique identifying number of installed software. I'll use Adobe Acrobat XI Standard as an example. Here is the identifying number for Adobe Acrobat XI Standard: AC76BA86-1033-FFFF-BA7E-000000000006 I'm curious if it is possible to then write a WQL query in SCCM 2012 R2 CU4 that would query all PCs for installed software using that number listed above. If so, I would appreciate any help! Thank you!
  4. I do already have the query below: select distinct SMS_R_System.Name, SMS_R_System.MACAddresses from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.MACAddresses = ##PRM:SMS_R_System.MACAddresses## order by SMS_R_System.MACAddresses I believe this is what you were referencing. This allows me to obtain a computer name if I only have the MAC. What I'm looking for is if I have the computer name and I want to find the MAC address, however on laptops there are multiple MACs so I'd like to get all of the MACs (or more specifically the Ethernet and Wireless) and I'd like them differentiated so I know which is which. Thank you for the response!
  5. Hello all, First post and totally NOOB here! I'm currently using the query below to find the LAN MAC address by entering the computer name in a prompted value. select distinct SMS_R_System.MACAddresses, SMS_R_System.Name from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.Name = ##PRM:SMS_R_System.Name## order by SMS_R_System.Name Is it even possible, and if so I'm hoping someone can help me figure out how to, query to find all MACs using the computer name in a prompted value? Currently if I run the query on a laptop, it will not return the wireless MAC and this is what I'm looking for. Also, I have seen ways of running such queries but they do not differentiate between which MAC is which. Would it be better to write a script in PowerShell for this task? Thank you!
