  1. You still need the unattend.xml to tell the OS what settings to use. So no matter how you get the settings into the unattend.xml (static or declaring a variable) its still required. As long as the variables are declared before the "Setup Windows and ConfigMgr" step it should work out. Technically the "Apply Operating System Image" and other pre-OS steps are creating/modifying an unattend.xml file for you.
  2. If you don't need flexibility with your unattend.xml file (for changing out different language and regional settings) you can just add the code to it. For example Inputlocale is for keyboard layout. I happen to leave the variable, and in my task sequence set it to "en-us;cs-cz" to set it to US layout as default but with the option to switch to the Czech keyboard layout. So you can just replace your "%OSDInputLocale%" with "pl-PL" or "pl-PL;en-us" or something like that.
  3. You can either define the variable using the Create TS Variable step, or you can modify the unattened.xml and hardcode the language value instead of using a variable.
  4. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/manage/checklist-for-installing-update-1710#post-update-checklist Did you verify the 1710 upgrade went through all the way? I would verify everything is at 1710 otherwise you might not qualify for the other updates as far as SCCM is concerned.
  5. Some other locations you can check are... C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Security Client\Support C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 Server Management\Support C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Support C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log* (Please run the Get-WindowsUpdateLog PowerShell command to convert ETW traces into a readable WindowsUpdate.log.) Usually I find that the client health is bad when they have issues like this and if you sort those out, SCEP will work like intended.
  6. Ahh ok. That makes sense. I'm using a "borrowed" export so it could be that its not the same Win 10 version I'm currently using. Or in general I've never re-created it after upgrading to the newer Win 10 version. I'll have to see if that solves my particular issue. Thanks.
  7. I've noticed mine is set to Adobe Reader, but eventually "Windows" decides its not working right and sets the default back to Edge. The below link may help. Hack Adobe Reader to be Default
  8. The very bottom of the post has a "downloads" section with a link to a zip file with the scripts. How can I install System Center Configuration Manager version 1702 (Current Branch) on Windows Server 2016 with SQL 2016 --> Scripts.zip How can I install System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch) version 1802 on Windows Server 2016 with SQL Server 2017 - Part 1 --> scripts.zip
  9. Have your application install for the system, but deploy the app to the users. This way it installs in the system context, but your users are still the 'target' of the deployment.
  10. dism.exe /Quiet /Add-Package /Image:%OSDTargetSystemDrive%\ /PackagePath:. /LogPath:%_SMSTSLogPath%\dism-lang.log The above is the command I use to inject the driver package. That is a "Run Command Line" TS Step, using a package with the specific language pack I want injected into the OS. I have both the language pack and also the language features in the package so I can use speech to text and other features. I use a TS Var to determine which ones get installed/injected. This is placed right after Apply Operating System, but before Drivers and Setup Windows and Configuration Manager steps. This works using ADK 1803, SCCM 1802 + HF1, deploying Win 10 1703. Thanks,
  11. I too second adding that line to your unattend.xml to get rid of it. I had the same issue until that was added.
  12. Gary uses this to pause a TS. https://garytown.com/task-sequence-message-pause-with-no-package You can also import some of his other examples from here. https://garytown.com/configmgr-task-sequence-collection
  13. I made a application I use during TS to install it. Command I use is ""%SystemRoot%\System32\Dism.exe" /Online /LogLevel:4 /Add-Package /PackagePath:"microsoft-windows-netfx3-ondemand-package.cab" /NoRestart /Quiet" for Win10 1703. Make sure the source of the CAB file matches the OS you're deploying. Hope this helps.
  14. I would be careful using the GPOs for site assignment. I only say that because its something outside of SCCM that is forcing a SCCM type settinging which might not be too obvious in the future. When i migrated from my old SCCM instance to a new one, it was those GPOs that caused a lot of my clients to not migrate. And then I had to delete those reg-keys with a different GPO to get them migrated. It was a mess but eventually it got sorted out. You gotta do what you gotta do but as a new admin taking over the SCCM it cause me a lot of confusion as to why my clients kept reverting back to the old site code.
