  1. Hi, SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 We are unable to stage PC's on one of our remote sites with a local DP. The error we receive is just strange: 0x0000264B See screenshot... Also, attached you can find the smsts.log file. One of the things I notice in the log file is: FAILURE ( 9803 ): ERROR - Machine is not authorized for upgrading (OSInstall=N), aborting. Now I know I've seen this before but I really don't remember how I've solved it last time. The PC is in SCCM and the OSInstall variable is set to Y So not sure why it fails. It all worked well for over a year then it suddenly st
  2. I'm hoping this should be a fairly easy one for someone to help with. When my task sequence finishes and OS is installed, i see the folder C:\Users\ADMINI~1 What is this folder used for? I set the administrator account to active and set a password in my task sequence and it works fine, so is this folder just something used by SCCM? I saw this article https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/d4a29c47-0d1f-4069-8160-e0b8c10f296f/cusersadmini1?forum=configmanagerosd but, my logs are definitely in the location C:\Windows\CCM\Logs, so i don't think it's that the logs are tryin
  3. Hello guys, I'm currently trying to deploy Windows 8.1 to a HP tablet with stand-alone media, but I'm having problems to join the domain during the task sequence. What I do first is joining a workgroup because I'm adding a WiFi profile during the TS to join the domain afterwards as I don't have a LAN port. Here are the TS steps Joining the workgroup and WiFi works perfect, but the Dom join doesn't seem to do anything The SMSTS.log shows "No adapters found in environment. Performing global configuration only." Ofc there is no LAN adapter, but WiFi is present. Any ideas how
  4. I want to know if anyone has a script or tutorial on creating a script to "enable enterprise mode" and to allow enterprise mode to use a "website list" to manage certain sites. I know this should be fairly simple to do but I am new to scripting so I felt after several hours of looking and obviously creating the wrong searches, it time to ask the pros. Would prefer vbscript, but will not refuse powershell.
  5. Hello, I have sourced a powershell script which removes Windows 8.1 applications and the tile ( appx ) If I run the script manually on a client the script runs and removes the application tile from the metro screen. I have altered the script a few times to remove multiple application tiles at once and that worked fine as well. I have created a program in SCCM 2012 and deployed to a client. The EXECMGR log file tells me the script is received by the client and has run successfully, exit code = 0, the execution status is Success. But I can still see the tile on the metro scre
  6. Good Afternoon, I have created a standard reference image for windows 8.1 that I can deploy to a server using Altiris 7.6. However that reference image of course lays down over the entire surface pro 3 drive and removes the ability to restore the surface to factory if something goes wrong. Leaving me with the only option of re-imaging the surface pro 3 via pxe or usb thumbdrive. I want to be able to create an image that I can lay down via pxe that preserves the ability to factory reset the surface pro 3 if needed via the button press commands. Can anyone assist me in accomplishing t
  7. I seem to have an issue where I cannot control the behaviour of our TPMs in our Panasonic Devices via Group Policy. I have issues where the TPMs (Manufactured by Infineon) in our Panasonic AX3s seem to lockout far too easily, previously I have not applied any group policy settings to control the behaviour of the TPMs themselves as during testing they seemed fine. Now I have tried to apply settings to set the standard user lockout threshold and maximum number of authorisations, on our Panasonic Devices I cannot seem to set these settings, its like the TPM ignores the commands from group polic
  8. Hi there, we are investigating windows 10 deployments, and so far have all our major software working on all our hardware. What we would like now is the best way to ensure a fast logon. Our current situation would have 5-6 users per day logging on to a machine (1 each hour), with the possibility of them using new machines. Im trying to add a package that removes the preinstalled apps, but no luck with that working from the TS yet (it works if i run it manually). Are there any other modifications that can be made to improve logon time? (Remove the "Hi" screens, etc) What is everyone
  9. 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. ...) a

  11. Hi All, I'm doing some work with a Windows 8.1 build using SCCM 2012. Everything is working fine and i'm using features in MDT 2013, however I can't get the OSDResults page to load at all. Does this work on 8.1? Even if I load it in the OS it fails, the program crashes straight away. Thanks, Andy
  12. Hi guys, not sure if this is the right place, but thought I'd post this up as I've spent a week trying to figure out how to get the Windows store working properly in our environment. Our environment is highly locked down because of the nature of what we do. Because of this the Windows store has been disabled. We've started trialling various Windows 8.1 devices for use as mobility solutions and it quickly became apparent that without the ModernUI apps the devices were basically very expensive laptops. Our users were after devices that had the freedom of an Ipad crossed with the functionali
  13. Hi, all: Looking for some help troubleshooting a PXE issue. Thus far, I have set up WDS, MDT 2013, and ADK 8.1 and can successfully capture/deploy a Windows 8.1 image by running the Lite Touch.vbs script from my deployment share. While deploying in this method isn't terrible, the goal is to ensure that it can be done via PXE. I had previously been able to successfully boot Windows 7 machines with WDS, MDT 2012 Update 1, and ADK 8.0, but recently had to upgrade to roll out 8.1 images. Now I can't get the new 8.1 machines to boot via PXE. System in the example is prestaged in ADDS. Options 60 an
  14. Hey guys, Been having a little issue with a customer i'm working for these days. They are running windows 8.1 clients, and need some shortcuts pinned to the metro start screen, these include shortcuts to folders and shortcuts to network files/folders We have got a great way to do web addresses in SCCM 2012 R2, but unfortunatly that does not cover i.e. exe files on the network, or shared folders and so on. I have found several scripts for this, both VBS scripts and PS scripts that i have used in windows 8, but for some reason they do not work in windows 8.1 ( VBS: http://gallery.tec
  15. I have created a new Windows 8.1 image and used it to create a virtual machine inside vSphere. How can I import this image into my Software Library? I need to create a deployment for this box, but I am unable to create the deployment for it? Any suggestions?
  16. I've installed the SCCM 2007 client on Windows 8.0, it's reporting back and receiving advertisements without a problem. After I upgrade to Windows 8.1 the client repairs itself after approx 5minutes and that's it. After the repair it no longer reports to or receives advertisements from SCCM 2007. Has anyone encountered this? Or know what it could be that's preventing the client from working. Thanks
  17. Hello all, We are deploying Windows 8.1 using SCCM 2012 R2 through PXE and we are having a really tough time getting it to work on Dell Latitude E7xxx series laptops. Here's what we are seeing: Boots into WinPE 5 Disk format - completes Change bios settings using Dell's CCTK - completes Installs 8.1, sets windows settings, apply's network settings - completes Installs 8.1 drivers from dell - completes Installs Windows and Configuration Manager - completes Reboots - says getting devices ready - completes Does not resume the task sequence - says "Getting ready" - hangs and times out a
  18. I would like to deploy the Windows 8.1 Enterprise update to our Windows 8 Enterprise clients using SCCM. In testing it has been straight forward to deploy the update as an application by calling setup.exe /auto:upgrade and then leaving it to do the install. After a reboot Windows 8.1 is ready to go. My issue is that this leaves Windows needing activation, and to activate it I need to change the product key to our Windows 8.1 MAK key. I don't know how to achieve this using SCCM, so I was wondering whether people had any suggestions. I have considered the following approaches: Instal
  19. I am having some issues getting a driver to work with WinPE 5 on a Lenovo S30 that uses the C600 RAID port by default. I have injected several different versions of that "iaStorS.inf" driver but none allow me to see the hard drive after booting into WinPE. Can someone remind me how to find the GUID of the devices in WinPE? Thanks, Jason
