How can I deploy Windows 8 X64 to the Microsoft Surface Pro using Configuration Manager 2012 SP1

Recommended Posts

I've got some problems enabeling BitLocker in the TS, this is the error Message;

 

Failed to run the action: Enable BitLocker.
No pre-boot keyboard or Windows Recovery Environment detected. The user may not be able to provide required input to unlock the volume. (Error: 803100B6; Source: Windows)

 

Any inputs?

Add the following reg key before you enable bitlocker.

 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\FVE]

"OSEnablePrebootInputProtectorsOnSlates"=dword:00000001

First off, this is a phenomenal site and I have used it ALOT, especially for our Configuration Manager deployment. If it wasn't for this site, I would have spent a lot more time trying to get the ball rolling with this.

 

Now, my issue(s):

 

Firstly, I understand that neither of these issues may specifically be Configuration Manager issues, however, this is the most helpful location I have found to try to get some help on the Surface Pro.

 

1) I have the May firmware update applied, and have the official Microsoft dongle. I start to PXE boot the tablet, but as soon as it says 'Start PXE over ipv4' it disappears almost immediately and changes to 'Start PXE over ipv6', where it stays for about a minute before finally timing out and rebooting. I have tried it repeatedly and each time get the same results, I can't press anything or do anything to get it to pxe boot properly. I do have pxe booting running properly in my environment using SCCM already and have been successfully deploying desktops/laptops for about a year (again, a huge thanks to this site!), but cannot get this tablet to PXE boot. I have found virtually no one else with this issue online and thus have not been able to figure out the issue. I have played with the settings in the BIOS. Has anyone seen this or have any ideas?

 

2) As for the procedure described in this thread, I am running into issues there as well though I suspect these are likely not SCCM related, but lack of experience and knowledge on my part. I am able to get to step 4 (create the task sequence stand alone media), however, when I choose the 'Stand-Alone Media' option I am unable to get the Config Manager console to recognize my flash drive. Let me paint the picture for you: the primary site server is a virtual server on a physical Hyper-V server in a remote location. I can not physically get to it. I am plugging in my USB device locally and through RDP settings, redirecting the USB drive to the server session. From the server itself, I can see the redirected USB device. Once I open Config Manager and get to step 4, choose USB device, the drop list is empty and I can't browse to it. Is there something I am doing wrong in Config Manager, or does the USB device have to be plugged directly into the server?

 

Thank you for any help!

 

-Mike

thanks !

as to your issues

 

1. are you using the Microsoft Surface nic ?

2. try installing the configmgr console on a windows 7 computer and create the standalone media there

 

cheers

1. I am using the Ethernet adapter found here: http://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/accessories/browse#accessories5 . Firmware update is applied. I have checked all the settings (not that there are very many), but I can't seem to get it to work.

 

2. I installed the SCCM console on my Windows 8.1 machine and that seemed to work. I am able to see the flash drive now. My task still isn't working, but let me troubleshoot that before I come back for help on that part :-)

 

Ideally, getting the pxe boot to work for the surface is the best possible option, but I can't seem to find much documentation on it.

How can I deploy Windows 7 X64 to the Microsoft Surface Pro using Configuration Manager 2007 R3 or 2012 SP1?

 

I have both USB 3.0 and 2.0 Standlone media created on both of them (using SCCM 2007). With both FAT32 and NTFS, but the PRO wont boot into the device at all. I have tried both - vloume button and Advance recovery options as well. Device is detected but booting wont happen.

 

Any information is appreciated. But my case is strictly WIN 7x64. PXE is not an option as if now. The same keys workm on other device with UEFI BIOS (Legacy and Both mode on)

Can i deploy Surface 3 as an unknown computer with a single USB docking station?

We are going to deploy a number of Surface Pro 3 tablets. And i want to use SCCM to provision them.

I am worrying about the MAC adres because i will use a single docking station.
