  1. I'm creating a reference image using MDT 8450 and ADK 1709 and Windows 10 x64 Build 1709 Enterprise edition. After creating the reference image I ran into the problem where you change the Lock screen to Windows spotlight and it changes back to the Picture mode. I've googled this and have not been able to find a fix or workaround. Does anyone who has a successful Win10 1709 reference image tell me how you fixed this problem? I've tried everything in these articles with no success: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-start-win_desk/windows-spotlight-not-working-windows-10-version/90f2dc70-7583-44c6-8af0-896be9508987 https://windowsreport.com/windows-10-creators-update-spotlight-issue/
  2. I deployed windows 10 ent 1607 to a VM to start creating a reference image. I'm using MDT 2013 Update 2 (8443) as well as ADK 1607. While the deployment succeeded, there was one error regarding IE 11 X86. it is: Error - Internet-Explorer-x86 role processing with DISM.exe failed, rc = -2146498548 I couldn't find much doing a search. Has anyone seen this before?
  3. Hey, i have sort of a very strange problem, maybe someone is able to help me or at least tip me into the right direction on what i am doing wrong. We are running a SCCM2012 R2 CU3 environment. We deploy our Software and OS with it since Win7 without any issues. Now with Tablets emerging we obviously want to do the same here. This is what we do (for Win7 and Win8.1 seperate TS): Build and capture refrence image with a reference task sequence on a VM Apply Image from the original media from MVLS remove some preloaded apps junk install our corporate Software (Office, Reader, etc. ...) apply all Windows Updates from our WSUS (not SCUP) (ZTI script from MDT Tool) sysprep & capture the image distribute the Image and deploy through a different TS to our Systems Now here is the Point, if i now deply the Win8.1 reference image to a machine (SurfaceP3 or VM) and go to Windows updates it will request you to install Windows updates again, even though they already seem to be installed from the reference sequence. I also tried using the Offline Serviceing through a SCUP, that successfully applied the WU and also stated in the console, but when deploy the Image Windows updates also prompt me to install all updates even already installed. I also checked the eventvwr during the reference TS, it shows the Office Updates as installed successful and also Windows Updates as successful after a reboot has been done / what the script and the TS does anyways. I can also see the WIM file got quite bigger since the updates have been included (9+GB) What am i doing wrong. Why has this worked before for Win7 like a charm? Where can i check what's going wrong? Any help is appreciated!
  4. Hello, I'm working on deploying a new master image, however I am running into an issue and I'm not sure of my way around it. I have a feeling what I am trying to do is either/both outside-the-box and/or just wrong. My Goal To bring deployment time down from 2-3 hours to 30-45 minutes. The master image will contain: Specific applications all users will receive Updates up to the quarter (latest build) of the mater image (intend to rebuild the master image every quarter, rolling any new updates and applications required into it When using the mater image in a new task sequence I intend to run additional scripts to further modify the image on a user-to-user, group-to-group basis (security permissions, drive letter reassignment, etc.). My Problem I am able to create my mater image with CCM Client installed, as many guides suggest; however when I add this master image, containing the CCM Client, to a new task sequence I cannot then run further actions on the image. Any attempt to boot into the applied OS without running the "Setup Windows and ConfigMgr" step results in a failed task sequence. I do not want to run the step again as it will attempt an uninstall, then re-install, of the already installed CCM Client on the master image. I have had issues in the past where either the uninstall, or re-install, of CCM Client in these situations have caused the task sequence deployments to crash 50% or more of the time. My Question Is there a way to perform more actions in a task sequence, after applying a master image that already has CCM Client installed, without re-installing CCM? Can I run a step the will perform all the steps in preparing the environment to continue installations without actually performing the CCM setup? I would appreciate any and all advice/pointers I receive in this matter. Thank you.
  5. Hi All, I've created a reference image (windows 7 x64) a few months ago. This reference image also contains a few applications like Office 2013, Silverlight... I've been using this reference image for a few months now. I've installed it on several types of Dell clients and everything works fine. Last week, I received a new type of laptop (Dell Latitude E6540). I added the new drivers to the task sequence (apply driver package method) and started the installation. This went well, the task sequence finished without errors. I started the laptop and at first sight, everything looked ok, instead... at the add/remove programs, a lot of software was gone! Office, Silverlight... were not listed under add/remove programs! When I browse to program files (x86), the folders/files of the software are there. So... for some reason, this type of laptop breaks my reference image! I'm troubleshooting this issue for a week now, and don't know what to do anymore Can somebody give me some advice on this? Tanks in advance!
