customsetting.ini help

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I have WDS and MDT working. Images are deploying fine. I made a change to the customsetting.ini file in MDT.

I had SkipComputerName=YES, but have removed this line. But now, each time the image is deployed, it does not provide the screen that allows me to enter a customer computer name.

What am I not doing? or missing?

Thanks in advance

You might want to try to update your customsettings.ini file with the following line:


The above command should allow the computer name prompt screen to populate which will in turn allow you to enter the necessary information. Also, remember to update your deployment share after you update your customsettings.ini file. Several other settings that you can add to your customsettigns.ini file can be found in a screenshot about 80% of the way down on the Automating the Migration from Windows XP to Windows 7 End-to-End library page.

For additional resources pertaining to the topic of deployment I recommend checking out the Deliver and Deploy Windows 7 and Deliver and Deploy Windows 8 pages.

Hope this helps!
