To get an idea of what is going to be in the next SCCM CB, it is a good idea to setup a SCCM TP lab. You can do that in Azure and here is how. This is a quick and dirty SCCM TP lab just to get an idea what new features might be in the next release.
So I have not created any client for deployment. If you want a bigger lab, then you can see this article: http://www.verboon.info/2017/02/deploying-configmgr-current-branch-in-azure-dev-test-lab/
Microsoft is fanally doing something about this issue. See the article from Microsoft here:
I work in a place where we have a lot of kiosk pc’s and pc’s that people can borrow. This mean that it is a first logon (almost) every time someone is logging in to Windows. The first logon time is not very fast in Windows 10, in fact it is very slow. There are some thing that you can do to speed up the first login time.
Jörgen Nilsson have a great post here on how to do the BIOS to UEFI switch on one task sequence in SCCM. There was a couple times during his guide where I had to try different things before I could get it to work. So that is why I made this post.
HP have changed the layout and data type on the HP warranty page, so the script doesn’t work right now. I don’t have the time to update it right now, but I will make a tweet when I do.
2016-07-04 UPDATE: I have updated the hta script, because there was an issue with the Wi-Fi and UEFI detection. It is fixed now.
In this post I will show you have to create 3 steps in your task sequence that checks if the computer is running UEFI. This is useful if you are installing Windows 10 and want to make sure the UEFI is enabled. The check is running at the start of the task sequence, so it doesn’t format the disk if the BIOS setting is not UEFI. This means that you can boot the Pc with the old installation if the check fails. If you want to semi automate the switch from BIOS to UEFI, see this post. 1E have a fully automated process and you can get more information here. Nickolai Andersen have a blog post where he automate the switch on Dell computers. Thanks to the blog post on Garytown for the inspiration.
