  1. So I downloaded several platform packs, and they all end with a .ppk.download extension. It's been 20 minutes and I don't see the size increasing. Is the download process finished? The Platform library does not see any of the packs. ex. HPElitePro600-800-G3-Windows10.ppk.download size shown as 737,771KB Type : DOWNLOAD File
  2. The platform pack has been used before on the same model computer. I have used a SmartDeploy boot disc and pointed it to the wim and ppk file on a USB hard drive to check if the ppk is good. The drivers load fine. It's when I covert over to DVD media that I have an issue. I see the ppk file on disc 4, and it is the correct size. However, since disc 4 is never requested, it doesn't seemed to be copied. The only thing that has changed is that .wim file is much larger due to Windows updates, and now the disc set has grown from 3 to 4.
  3. The drivers are not being loaded on to the workstation after the installation of the image from a 4 disc DVD set. The C:\Platform directory is empty. Also, when loading the image, only the 3 discs are used across multiple differing workstation models. Disc 4 is never asked to be placed into the workstation. This was not an issue when the disc set was only 3 disks, on SmartDeploy v2.0.1060. OS: Windows 10 Enterprise Build 1511 SmartDeploy version 2.0.2050 Media type: 4 x DVD-DL
  4. Is there or will there ever be blu-ray support for offline deployment? External flash/hard drives are not allowed in the environments that the install team works in.
  5. I use Smart Deploy to build the .wim file and media .iso. I am currently using an exported Smart Deploy answer file with the necessary changes that I needed such as renaming the administrator and guest account. I want to remove the OOBE for any new user to the workstation.
  6. What changes to the Smart Deploy answer file do I need to make to remove the user OOBE and machine OOBE for Windows 10 offline deployment?
  7. So if the service is set to starting rather than disable, does that mean an incomplete deployment/sysprep?
  8. Using the offline deployment media to install an image, I noticed that on some workstations that the Smart Deploy Service is either disabled or starting/running. 1. How do I remove the Smart Deploy service after the image has installation process has been completed, using the answer file? 2. If there is no way to remove the Smart Deploy service using the answer file, how do I force the Smart Deploy service to be disabled after the image has installation process has been completed, using the answer file? Smart Deploy version 2.0.1060 OS: Windows 7 & Windows 10
  9. I am trying to use a combined driver pack that I have built with an older version of Smart Deploy (v1.1.2010), with the latest version of Smart Deploy (v2.0.1030). The single platform pack contains 18 different models of workstations from different manufacturers. I build the offline disc images (8.5 DVD-DL media) with SD v2.0.1030, and when I image 2 different workstations with the discs, everything looks like it is loading fine. When I log in to the workstations (both are different models), there are drivers that were not loaded. I confirmed that the drivers are in the platform packs by extracting the drivers with Platform Manager, and pointing Windows 7 to those extracted drivers. What has changed in the way drivers are loaded in v 2.0.1030 from an offline media disc? Has something changed in the commands for the WMI filtering? My offline image discs built from SD v1.1.2010 properly loads the drivers on the same workstations using the same platform pack. I tried both the Smart PE 64-bit and Smart PE 32-bit and both fail at creating image discs that will properly load all the drivers for Windows 7 (64-bit).
  10. Smart Deploy Version 1.1.1990 Whenever I make a Windows 7 64-bit image and span it across 3 DVD-Rs. The 3rd disc comes back with an error after I have inserted the disc and wait for the reader to get ready. The error reads: " An error has occurred while applying the image" When I try a second time (starting from disc 1) to load the image on the same machine, the 3rd disc is fine. I've made new disc 3's and tried a slower speed at burning disc 3 from ISO, and if I put in disc 3 for the first time in a computer, I always get the error. I've also used media creator to make a new ISO's, and I still get the same problem. I've modified the original VM, just a little, and still, I cannot image a machine from the 3 disc DVD-R set on the first try with disc 3. I've tried different computers and different external and internal readers, and the issue is still there. I've tried different burning software, and the error still happens with disc 3 and the error does not occur when I load the same machine a second time.
  11. In my answer file I have the following line for the platform pack: -<deploy_wizard mode="Unattended"> ... -<advance_options> -<general> -<platform_pack>[imageFolder]\filename.ppk</platform_pack> -<system_properties> ....</system_properties> ....</general> ....</advance_options>
  12. When I run the cscript ospp.vbs /cmid command on a Windows 7 workstation that has just been imaged using DVD's, I notice that Office 2010 CMID is the same as my orginal virtual machine. Is there a way after sysprep or during sysprep to generate a new CMID for Office 2010? Smart Deploy v 1990 Windows 7 x64 Office 2010 (32-bit)
  13. This time I decided to choose the 8.5 DL ISO option, and don't have the issues. Smart Deploy creates 2 ISOs for DL DVD instead of 3 (with the 4.5 SL ISO option.)
