  1. Hello, Im a bit of a newbie to SCCM so hear goes; I am trying to deploy Windows 8 64 bit to a HP 8470p laptop using UEFI. The build is failing on an error code of 80004001 or (0x80004001) I have attached a screen shot of the task sequence editor that I am using at the bottom of the page. When I search through the smsts.log file I am coming across the following error messages either in Red or Yellow [system partition not set [unable to locate a bootable volume. Attempting to make C:\ bootable. Volume C:\ has an NTFS filesystem Marking partitions active is only suppo
  2. I work for a college and we have a windows 8 OS pre-existing in my lab. Those machines are frozen by DeepFreeze. I want to deploy another windows 8 OS to the same machines which will make them dual boot. We were using Ghost before and were able to do this by creating a separate partition and applying the OS to that partition. We moved to SCCM infrastructure recently and when I tried to accomplish this through the task sequence, the existing image get wiped out. Please help me with this.
  3. Hi all, let me start by saying what a fantasic resource this site is for IT admins to share knowledge. I have been able to find answers to many questions on here. I'm having a bit of trouble trying to capture and build a Windows 8 deployment solely using SCCM 2012 SP1 though. I have been able to achive my goals using MDT stand alone, but I'd really like to be able to use SCCM as my one stop solution for most needs. I've created a reference Windows 8 system in Hyper V and customised it to my liking. My main goal is to preserve the start screen look and tile placement for all user
  4. The majority of computers on our corporate network are windows 7 or server 2008. Windows updates are distributed via WSUS, this has been configured by Group Policy. The GPO is setup to do the following. Download updates, notifies user that updates are available to install, installs updates on shutdown. This works well with windows 7 computers. We have recently introduced a few windows 8 computers to the network which do not exhibit the same behavior. The windows 8 computers will download the updates but WILL NOT INSTALL UPDATES ON SHUTDOWN. Has anyone else come across this, any suggesti
  5. I am curious if anyone is successfully deploying Windows 8 to tablet pcs over a network and if so how? The problem i seem to be running into is USB to Lan. How do pxe boot with these devices? I cannot for the life of me figure it out. Is boot media with embedded drivers for the usb to lan the way to go? Looking forward to hearing thoughts and experiences on this, Our executive staff are really pushing for tablets. So far they just seem like a huge PITA. Cheers, Mike
  6. Hi All, I am trying to find a solution that will update the built in Windows Modern applications (i.e. Bing, Mail, Calendar etc) automatically. I cannot find any powershell or other script that has the ability to update these apps without launching the apps store and then hitting update. Everything I search for has the ability to remove the applications but nothing to update them with. I can use powershell to discover the applications requiring updates but nothing to get them to update: Get-EventLog -LogName system -Newest 2 -InstanceId 17 -source *update*| select timewritten,messa
  7. Hi guys.. I use thick images at my workplace because we don't have the infrastructure to do wds, lite or zt installs.. we've been using ghost forever I am trying to have windows 8 ask me for a computer name and join a specified domain.. the way i did it before was using MySysprep2 with the variables <computer>% input pc name%</computer> on my unattended, but it looks like MSP2 does not work with windows 8 .. does anyone have an alternative that will allow me to input the pc name before joining an existing domain? needless to say i also have this on my xml file:

  9. How do i add Dot Net 3.5 Framework to a win 8 wim or in a task sequence how do i do that during deployment?
