  1. Virtualize Win8.1: BIOS + MBR Physical Partition > to > WIM Image > to > UEFI GPT VHD Virtualizing Win8.1 from BIOS + MBR Physical Partition > to > .WIM Image > to > UEFI GPT .VHD Sometime last year I found out about Native boot VHDs and tried to go that way for good. There were some issues with hardware and OS (Win7 at the time) not working out and lot of new things that I was learning about VHDs. Anyways, that confusion, learning and failure led to a better path So this 2015, I figured out how to get VHDs (with Fresh Win 8.1 Installs via Install.WIM DISM Apply Image) to Native Boot on Surface Pro 3 (Sp3). I am going to attempt doing the following steps using DISM/ ImageX: MBR [Customized Win 8.1] (Physical) > Create Image > [Customized Win 8.1 .WIM] (Virtual - File based so - No sectors or MBR/GPT?? ). [Customized Win 8.1 .WIM] (Virtual) > Apply Image > [Empty New GPT .VHD] (on SP3) My thought is that by going to .WIM I bypass the whole converstion drama between MBR/BIOS & GPT/UEFI as the .WIM is agnostic of both of them? Is this a valid thought or not? Thoughts? NOTE: I can.. try out the above with creating a small FRESH MBR Windows 8.1 partition on X61T/ T61 and then doing the above 2 steps. Convert it to a .WIM and then applying to a GPT .VHD I am guessing a SYSPREP is recommended somewhere in between. Someone somewhere also mentioned doing Sysprep in a VM/ Hyper V instead? Thoughts? Where and how would you recommend applying the SYSPREP?
  2. Hi! I'm having some issues with a .vbscript made for renaming computer during a task sequence. The issue is that it works for renaming virtual machines, but also a physical HP, the way it's supposed to (name of choosing + last 6 digits of serialnumber). However it fails on a customers physical Lenovo machine. The Lenovo machine sets the first part of name correctly, but completely ignores the fact that it's supposed to cut the serialnumber to the last 6 digits, meaning sometimes the machinename goes above 15 characters. The vbscript is run right after formating the disk, as seen on this pic: The script is: ----------------------------------------------------------- Set env = CreateObject("Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment") Name = inputbox("Description here", "Title here",env("_SMSTSMachineName"),400,0) Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\CIMV2") Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Bios") strComputer = "." Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") Set colBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_BIOS") For each objBIOS in colBIOS serial = objBIOS.SerialNumber Next serial = Replace(serial," ","",1,-1) strNewName = Left(Name,9) & Right(serial,6) env("OSDComputerName") = strNewName -------------------------------------------------------------- Picture from successfull rename (log) virtual machine: Text from logs: From the logs you can see the virtual machine successfully set the machinename during the MDT Gather-process.
