Windows 10: Customize Windows 10 Image in Audit Mode with Sysprep
I remember saying ' if you talk like the rooster and don't listen like the turtle you be alone like the fox'!!!! It mean you don't always must have the last word when you talk or you look like the bully.... you have a nice day too
So, I'm on one more ignore list. Acceptable, I have no interest in having a dialog with users who cannot accept the fact they have done something wrong, who rather would like to leave their wrong conclusions posted as facts than see them corrected.
That being said, guys be careful when sysprepping Build 10547. It seems that once again MS has managed to break the CopyProfile component; since the release of this build yesterday I have some 20+ sysprep runs, various scenarios, all have failed if the CopyProfile was used.
I am facing issue with computer name after sysprep. My script should ask me computer name after running the sysprep and a script would run that would join the machine to domain. Same settings in the unattended file working fine with Windows 7 and 8.1, but Windows 10 is taking auto generated name of the machine instead of asking the name. CopyName field is empty in the Specialize part of the unattended file. Need your expert opinion.
Create post, followed along and everything went great creating the image and even building the installation media. I used a volume license enterprise version for the image and have run into one snag that maybe you can help with:
When trying to use the build I get an error that the product key does not match any of the Windows images available.
I have tries the old PID file method to no avail. Any pointers?
I had the same issue - have a look at the log files in C:\Windows\Panther. In my case it saw the name in unattended.xml but ignored it and generated it's own.
You need an Enterprise Volume Licencing Key to activate Enterprise. Your domain or network should have a KMS server for this purpose, read more here: Deploying KMS Activation
That is not the issue. I can build from DVD and activate without issue using our VL keys. The error occurs when trying to install Win 10 from the USB media created from the build. I.E. right after you select INSTALL for the initial build.
I am sorry but I do not understand that, "select INSTALL...". You should not have that selection when deploying, you simply mount the deployment image and the installation (deployment) will be automatic.
- Configure your image in Audit Mode
- Create the Answer File
- Capture the image
That's it. The Microsoft TechNet article I linked to in my previous post explains the procedure.
1. You link for was setting up a KMS host and configuring the environment for use.
2. we are not deploying an image through SCCM or WDS. We are using a USB drive that was configured to install Win 10 at boot-up.
The "INSTALL" selection is the same here as if you were inserting the base VL DVD and installing Windows as a fresh install.
Yes, the link was to TechNet article about KMS activation. That's what you have to do.
