    You can indeed use a Task to set the product key as part of the deployment. In the Answer File wizard, add first boot tasks of: cscript.exe "c:\wilndows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx" cscript.exe "c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ato” For reference; /ipk is install product key /ato is activate

  4. Hi Nicholas, I see you've opened a Support ticket on this - please expect to hear from us shortly. If anyone else is experiencing this issue, please feel free to reach out to us at support@smartdeploy.com. Glenn SmartDeploy Support
  5. Greetings Everyone, I'm experiencing an issue where the feature in the SmartDeploy Console to remotely deploy images to machines is not to work. I am getting heartbeats back from the target machine and a can confirm it has a network connection. When I go to deploy a image to one of my test machines, it will not receive the signal to reboot and reimage. This is also a problem even when trying to multicast to a small group of machines and even with machines scheduled to reimage at a later time. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

    hi should the build vm be activated, it wasn’t so i have activated and i am capturing a new image. i will confirm the product code when i build the new answer file and deployment pack. if not required please remove the product key in the logs from your records. is there a post install task command i can use to change the product key prior to the activation task? kind regards

    Yes, looks like it's failing to install the product key you specified. Ensure the product key matches the SKU you are deploying. Looks like you are deploying Enterprise, so is this a valid MAK key for Enterprise? If you leave the key out of deployment, can you put it in after?

    Hi, your image did deploy so I have rebuilt the image but get a different sysprep error. Looks like product key install failure. Can you please confirm and advise? Logs attached Kind Regards W1011413.Logs.zip
  10. Hi Keith, The ISO's are no longer bundled in our latest version. Please create your SmartDeploy boot media ISO by utilizing the Media Wizard, and selected DVD Media. Then save the ISO file.
  11. After upgrading there are no longer ISO's in C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartDeploy\SmartDeploy Enterprise There are 2 BIN files (SmartDeploy_x64.bin and SmartDeploy_x86.bin) Reinstalling the software did not restore the ISO files.

  13. Hello Stephen In order to use unattended deployment with machines that we do not have a platform packs for, you would simply need to create custom platform packs for each of those devices. You can choose to include the drivers for these devices or just create platform packs with device specific manufacture and model so that the deployment wizard sees platform packs exist thus continuing through the unattended deployment. You can find a video on how to create you own platform packs here: https://www.smartdeploy.com/platform-packs/ Here is an example.
  14. Hello, We are planning to deploy SmartDeploy to a number of machines where platform packs aren't available. This isn't an issue for us as Windows 10 Pro installs standard drivers onto the PC until we can pull them down through Windows Update. When we deploy an image remotely to run an unattended installation, it won't proceed further until someone clicks "Yes" to proceed past the message about having no platform pack (message attached). Does anyone know if there is a way to automatically accept this option during an unattended deployment? We are a small charity and can't afford to pay for platform packs ?

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. If you could provide a clean image for me to test with that would be great. The only concern is that my image deploys ok on other hardware. I am already building another image but i am now having issues importing the image to smartdeploy. It is saying to do a shutdown /s /t 0 which I have done with elevated cmd prompt but makes no difference. I am using VmWAre workstation pro v15 BIOS and also tried UEFI boot Single VMDK Once gold image is built I am taking a clone and completing the build on the clones for different. Installing updates and base software. Using that to import from. Is this the correct process?

    The last thing that happens in the setupapi.dev.log pertains to McAfee. SetupCopyOEMInf - C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Agent\Evaluation\ENDP_GS_1060\Install\0000\x64\mfenlfk.inf cmd: "C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Agent\Evaluation\ENDP_GS_1060\Install\0000\\mfehidin.exe" I would try deploying an image that does not contain McAfee at all. We've seen security software get in the way of mini-setup before. It's usually best to install it as a first boot task. If you need a clean Windows 10 1803 image to test with we can provide one directly to you.

    Once the bluescreen happens, reboot the machine back to SmartDeploy. At the splash screen, click Collect Logs. Save the resulting .zip to USB or Network and email it to us. support @ smartdeploy.com Additionally, open a command prompt, change to where Windows is installed, usually C:\ or D:\ and then see if there is any *.dmp files in \Widnows\Minidump. If there are are, please send us those as well.

    Hi, i am still having issues deploying to Dell optiplex 7050 and 7040. Setup fails to complete. After the final reboot the system blue screens and cannot continue. Only option is recovery and safe mode is not allowed during install. This is a new from ISO 1803 enterprise image created on VmWare workstation 12. Minimal updates and no software installed. Platform pack is 1.2.6 (latest). same image deploys to other models (dell 9010, 9020) with no problems. Is there a driver issue with the platform pack? I see dell have released custom chipset drivers are these included in the latest platform pack. can this be confirmed? Are there any smartdeploy or windows logs that I can use to determine the error? Kind Regards

    PowerShell + Firstboot + TPM

    Hello Steve I have emailed you directly about possibly using Tasks to accomplish this.
  22. Hey all, i need to enable TPM on laptops. For one older, i need to enable it from Windows. I have found a way to enable it through PowerShell with this command : Initialize-Tpm -AllowClear -AllowPhysicalPresence After applying it, the computer reboot and prompt me with F1 key to reset TPM and after that i can enable Bitlocker. I am looking for an option to call PowerShell script that can be executed on FirstBoot process. I created a batch file that call ps1 (PowerShell.exe -command c:\Platform\TPM\TPM.ps1) but the script seems to not applied. Any idea or better way?
  23. Has anyone tried deploying a differential deployment? Any obstacles?
  24. Hi tgoralpd, Go ahead and email us at support@smartdeploy.com and we can assist further, and be sure to reference this thread. Glenn SmartDeploy Support
  25. I have the same issue, have you found a solution?
  26. Thanks Jeff for this. I will be using this once we purchase.
  27. It seems that every release of a creators comes with hew bumps in sysprep, depending on what was installed or done on the Windows installation. In-place upgrades is the most common cause, but often anti-virus or other security software can cause problems too. Also, you don't want to bother with uninstalling any of the Start Menu apps, as it can cause problems in sysprep given the way that Windows handles re-provisioning them. Instead, you can customize the start menu to hide them.
  28. Hi Cameron, There are a number of potential causes here - we'll need to see some logs and a database from this workstation to diagnose this in more detail. Please expect an email from us shortly. Glenn SmartDeploy Support
  29. We are trying to update the drivers for multiple computers from the SmartDeploy console. We click on one computer and then press the SHIFT key and then click again to highlight about 30 computers in the console, right-click and expand "Update Drivers", then we click on "Schedule". We select a time to update the drivers and after we click OK, we get this error message: Do you know if there is a solution for this issue? Thanks
