  1. You're a life saver Easy peazy with your instructions. On most forum posts I read to uninstall WSUS and reinstall. Thanks for taking your time to answer this question. PS: I know it's an old topic, but just wanted to thank you.
  2. Wauw, a lot of work went into this! Thanks for the great post and contribution! I'll be sure to test this out when we're going to move to the Creators Update.
  3. Hi everyone, can someone enlighten me about the procedure they use at their customers? I can't seem to find any other information than "use clean drivers", but the practical side of the implementation isn't really explained. Thanks!
  4. Hi all, On a couple of blogs, I read you need to import clean drivers in ConfigMgr and not just add all the drivers in the driverpack found on the OEM website (lenovo/HP/..). I was wondering how this can efficiently be done and how you do this for customers? I was browsing on the Lenovo website and saw that the driver packs mostly contain old drivers. The latest drivers can only be found on the website of the manufacturer (Broadcom, Intel,...). These website also advertise that it's best to use the drivers of the OEM since they may add additional fucntionality?! Maybe the following method would be advised? Download the latest drivers of the generic devices (Intel NIC, RST, chipset, integrated gfx, nvidia/ati gfx, broadcom NIC) Install computer with these drivers (using ConfigMgr) After installation, download the latest drivers for all unknown devices (based on PNP Hardware ID). Use dpinst in combination with XML-file to load all the drivers of the driverpackage of Lenovo. If still better drivers are found, search for newer versions of this driver. (This step is used to check better drivers for the known devices. Since Microsoft also has standard drivers which will be used if no other are available) Thanks in advance!!
  5. I was looking for a way to use it in scripts and have found this resource: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-ie/goglobal/bb964650(en-us).aspx Can someone inform me if there may be better ways to do this since Windows 10? Just to have some other options..
  6. Hi everyone, I've deployed Windows 10 Enterprise ENG + added some language packs so users can change the UILanguage for their profile. I've used this guide on Windows-noob to implement this and can confirm this also works on Windows 10. Is it also possible to change the System UILanguage of Windows so the language of the lockscreen (& potential new users) can be changed? Or can you only set it during the deployment (UILanguage in unattend.xml) and you'll need to restage to change it? Thanks in advance! Regards
  7. Hi Niall, Thanks for the information! I'll discuss it with the customer and let you know how we'll proceed. I don't have access to the custom boot environment, but think I can also test it here with something else ;-) Keep you posted when I've more information.
  8. I'm on your side of the discussion and you're completely right, Niall. But it's difficult to convince the customer to replace a custom framework & scripts on which they have worked for over 10 years. Especially if this framework is the main tool to initiate deployments, logging, OSD,.. But can it be done? Using the scripts of MDT outside of MDT? I guess it won't be as easy as just calling the script with 1 line of code in a custom WinPE bootimage and bitlocker will be provisioned and later enabled?
  9. Hi Niall, Thanks for your reply! This because the customer who wants to enable bitlocker in Windows 10 isn't using MDT/SCCM. They have created custom bootimages with custom scripts on a custom deploymentshare for their custom deployment framework.. Now they are looking for a standard script to enable bitlocker in their installation sequence. They still want to pre-provision bitlocker before the OS has been laid down. So is there a way to use the wsf/vbs scripts of MDT/SCCM outside of MDT/SCCM to accomplish the same thing?! Thanks in advance! Regards
  10. Hi Niall, thanks for your quick reply! The "problem" is that the customer is keen on keeping their custom environment. So they really can't use the steps in MDT, since they don't use MDT. Is there a way to use the scripts of these steps in order to provision bitlocker and enable it after the OS has been laid down? Thx!!
  11. Hello all, I have a specific question for a customer of mine. This customer is using a custom boot images + scripting to deploy Windows machines. SCCM/MDT is not used in the deployment process (SCCM is only used to manage the assets and push software). They want to integrate the deployment of bitlocker in this custom bootimage. What would be the best start to do this? Could the same scripts of the TS steps in MDT (pre-provision bitlocker & enable bitlocker) be used? How could this be done? At the moment the customer is using Windows 7 but would like to move to windows 10. Are there new things regarding the deployment of bitlocker we need to keep in mind or is the deployment the same as in Windows 8? On technet, I couldn't find anything new listed regarding to deployment of bitlocker in windows 10. Since this customer doesn't have SA, they can't use MBAM and the new deployment capabilities in 2.5 sp1... I was looking for the same deploymen tmethod as these powershell scripts if this would be possible? Thanks in advance!
