In a previous post I've shown you how you can deploy Windows 10 x64 to the Surface Pro 3 with MDT 2013 Update 1 using a PowerShell script. Now that the Surface Pro 4 is released it's time to automate that installation also, so here we go !
The PowerShell script is to be run on your soon-to-be MDT server and it will create everything for you, all you have to do is supply it with an OS (Windows 10 x64) and optionally some apps, drivers or even the Windows ADK 10. Fear not, if you don't have the Surface Pro 4 drivers or Windows ADK 10 then the script will download them for you.
Download the script
You can download the script here, then unzip it.
Deploy Microsoft Surface Pro 4 with MDT 2013 Update 1- October 2015.zip 6.22KB 1031 downloads
To use the script simply adjust the many variables within to suit your needs, the one you'll probably want to change first is
$SourcePath = "E:\Source"
followed by the CustomSettings.ini variables starting at line 310 as shown here...
then the BootStrap.ini variables on line 386 and onwards as shown here..
Once done, copy Windows 10 X64 Enterprise to the specified folder
and decide if you want the script to download the following:
- Windows ADK 10
- MDT 2013 Update 1
- Surface Pro 4 drivers
- Surface Ethernet adapter driver
- Surface Gigabit Ethernet adapter driver
If you do NOT want the script to automatically download the above content, then manually copy the files to the location specified in the script
If you place the files listed above in the wrong folder or use a different name than specified in the script, then the script will attempt to download them again.
When you are ready to test the script, run it by starting Windows PowerShell ISE as Administrator.
The script will automatically configure Windows ADK 10 and MDT 2013 Update 1. In addition, it will install Windows Deployment Services and after configuring the MDT DeploymentShare it will import the x64 boot image into WDS.
The x64 boot image in MDT 2013 Update 1 will have both the Surface Pro 4 100mb and gigabit network drivers injected. If you want to remove with, simply rem out the line in the script.
The script will import all drivers for the Surface Pro 4 into the MDT 2013 Update 1 deployment workbench.
Once the script is complete you should see something like the following screenshot
you can go ahead and launch the MDT 2013 Update 1 deployment workbench to review what has happened. Here you can see the drivers imported for the Surface Pro 4.
Opening the task sequence reveals the Inject Drivers step for the Surface Pro 4 containing the WMI query needed
after you are done admiring what it's put in place, it's time to UEFI network boot your Surface Pro 4 and enjoy the show
