  1. Hi Guys, Happy New Year. Wanted to know if anyone knows best way to configure Dual Monitor settings during Win7 OSD deployment in SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 MDT integrated. I know you can edit the unattended.xml file ( can this be done for two monitors and setting one as main ?). Is there somewhere where the settings are applied in registry that i can export and import at the end of the TS before the final reboot. Basically we have a few Workstations that use dual monitors and the displays need to be configured a certain way, was hoping there was a way to configure this during TS rather than the engineer having to manually configure once complete. any help would be appreciated. Thank you
  2. Hi Guys, Wanted to know if anyone has been able to create a method where they can identify when a particular Workstation was imaged and the name of the Task Sequence Used. Im looking to do this and just wanted some ideas on how to go about doing this. SCCM 2012 R2, MDT integrated. Thank you.
  3. Thank you very much for your response i will reply back on how i get on.
  4. I tried searching for the updates using SUP but wasnt able to find the KB Prerequisites as this was my first choice of deployment. any reason why im not able to see the KB files. we are only deploying Security and Critical updates for windows only in our environment using sccm 2012 r2 cu3. on the other hand ive managed to automate the process off installing the Prerequisites and IE11 with three reboots using a combination of batch files and runonce registry keys but the problem now is the Disclaimer prevents the autologon.
  5. Guys, Wondering if anyone can help me out, i've been working on this for a few days now and i haven't made any progress. we are testing IE 11 with enterprise mode on windows 7 sp1 machines currently have IE8 installed. these are the steps im trying to achieve 1) Install Prerequisites KB2834140, KB2670838, KB2639308, KB2533623, KB2731771, KB2729094, KB2786081, KB2888049, KB2882822 2) Reboot 3) Install IE11-Setup-Full.exe ( IEAK) 4)Reboot 5)Install KB2929437 (for enterprise mode) 6)Reboot 7)install IE11 ADMX templates ( we had issues where everytime we opened up local gpedit.msc it gave us an error message so this replaces the current ones from sysvol. we also noticed the enterprise policy wasnt being set, even though its been set in AGMP) ive tried both Application and Package method using Batch Files, both ways don't work. Has anyone successfully deployed IE 11 with enterprise mode enabled ?. any help would be appreciated thank you

  7. Hi, I used your task sequence for enabling bitlocker on a Dell laptop (Windows 7 x86), how would i go about integrating MBAM into the task sequence, assuming the MBAM server is setup and Group policy is enabled. Do i just install the MBAM client at the end of the TS ? and would this take ownership of bitlocker ? thank you
  8. is there a way to Add a description which then gets added in to AD once the OSD is completed. ?
  9. Hi, I would like some advice on howto go about upgrading a Live Environment of Sccm 2007 R3 with MDT 2010 integration to MDT 2012. Im using MDT 2012 in are test environment and its working very well and I would like to upgrade the Live Environment without breaking anything.

  10. Thank you, but that doesnt seem to work, ive created the following but im not getting any results.... select * from SMS_R_System inner join SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile on SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.ResourceID = SMS_R_System.ResourceId inner join SMS_G_System_INSTALLED_SOFTWARE on SMS_G_System_INSTALLED_SOFTWARE.ResourceId = SMS_R_System.ResourceId where SMS_G_System_SoftwareFile.FileName like "custom11.prf" and SMS_G_System_INSTALLED_SOFTWARE.InstalledLocation = "c:\\program files\\microsoft office\\" why do you think this may be. thank you for your response.
  11. Hi, Can someone please help me with a query to find a file in a particular location. thank you
  12. Hi, Could someone please help me better understand how the compliance report actually determines which machines are compliant and not compliant. i have a sccm 2007 r3 wsus and mdt 2010 integration environment.... we have around 75% machines compliant and around 20% machines none compliant and the rest unknown. ive gone through the logs of machines and machines are receiving windows updates but i cannot workout what actually determines machine from being compliant and not compliant.... i need to have the compliance above 90% to keep the managers happy. any help would be appreciated. thank you
  13. Hi, Im using MDT 2010 Update 1 to deploy Windows 7 on machines and XP, it works perfectly deploys windows 7 x86 ent fine and all the applications after. I would like to be able to do Zero Touch using SCCM 2007 r3. we have mdt 2010 integration into sccm. I have managed to import the custom win7 wim image into sccm. I am abit confused on creating MDTFiles Package, and MDTSettings Package and of course USMTPKG. how do i create these and will sccm use the customsettings.ini file from MDT ? any help would be appreciated because we will be migrating 8000 machines from XP to Windows 7. thank you
  14. HI, Just wanted some advice, how would i go about trying to find the best way to find sccm clients that have not contacted the server in 10 days for example. or machines that have not received critical updates. how would i write the query for that? thank you
  15. Hi, I would like some advise please. I need to deploy appv client 4.6 sp1 with hotfix 4 to all the machines im using sccm 2007 r3 to do so. Deploying appv client requires a reboot and another reboot deploying the hotfix 4. i can use "/norestart" after installing the appv client but after installing the hotfix 4 it needs to reboot because the applications wont work. how can I prompt the user to restart the machine and give them a countdown ? or is there a better way to accomplish this. thank you
  16. I was wondering if someone could help me, ive created a reference build of windows 7 32bit Enterprise using mdt 2010 on windows 2008 r2 x64bit . ive captured the image but when i deploy it, its says "The unattend answer file contains an invalid product key. either remove the invalid key or provide a valid product key in the unattend answer file to proceed with windows installation." i dont remember inserting the product key how would i go about solving this problem. ive tried to go into WSIM and create a answer file, but it keeps crashing, i read that the 64bit version of WAIK doesnt support 32bit win7, and that there was a waik suppliment which i extracted and copied over to the location. but i still cannot get it working. i would like to know how would i mount the wim image and inject the file and where would i find the location to place it.... any help would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Sorry for the Late reply.... it didnt work...... we had a consultant in who is a MVP himself in SCCM and he created a status filter rule that called a script that removed the machine out of a collection as soon as it finishes.... seems to be working fine now.
  18. Hey Mate, We just received our new 8200 machines recently. and i had the trouble of updating the build to support the new machines. so what i did was create a new reference build using the 8200 ( i had to do it at some point anyway because we needed ie7 on the build). when i did that i made sure i had the network and mass storage drivers for the other 8000,7900 and 7800 on the winpe image. didnt really have any problems... sp40553 sp52247 sp52372 is needed these are the extra from the 8000 build that you require.
  19. Thank you for your response. what i have decided to do is create a advertisement to rerun program, and in the task sequence used a vbs to remove the computername out of the collection once finished. im in the process of testing it now to see if it works... thanks again
  20. My apologise, for explaining it wrong, it is Zero touch that I am using, I place a computer into deployment collection in sccm and the machine is zero touched. what I would like to know is how can I zero touch a machine that has already had zero touch done to it, ive tried placing it back into the deployment collection and that hasn't worked. thank you for your response.
  21. Hi, We have SCCM 2007 and MDT 2010 integrated, i have a collection that will deploy windows xp and applications to a machine (not pxe boot) via dhcp. the question is how do i go about REDEPLOYING the same machine in the collection. i have tried removing and then replace the machine into the collection but nothing happens.... does the task sequence recognize the machine having been deployed to already, do i need to remove files in order it not detect it previously been deployed too. any help would be appreciated thank you
