  1. What I did was create regular deployment media and select your custom answer file. Burn that to the USB stick and then copy the files over to it after the fact. Files will be there just as if you did it on one single ISO file. I also had to split my wim file to get it all to fit properly. Dism /Split-Image /ImageFile:C:\Path_to_your\image.wim /SWMFile:C:\path_to_your\image.swm /FileSize:3072 Update your answer file to point to this new swm file and it will find it without issues. You can change the file size to make sure things fit properly.
  2. What do you see in the start menu? Do you see "msresource://" on some of the apps that are not working?
  3. I also have this setup. I get around it by creating an ISO and using rufus to create a boot usb stick. Never had any issues with it.
  4. You should be able to theoretically make this work by manually creating a bootable iso and just burning that to your Blu-ray disk. I have done this in the past with other things and it has worked fine. I'm not sure if the process is the same or how the drive behaves with a bootable Blu-ray though so I couldn't speak on that part. Best is to just get a bootable WinPE iso and burn it to a Blu-ray to see if it works first before going down that road. that will surely tell you if bootable Blu-ray is even possible.
  5. What do you need help with? Is it just setting up the scripts to remove stuff?
  6. I have not had any issues using the Copyprofile method at all. I use Windows 10 1803. Then again, I only do minor changes to my default profile so that might be why.
  7. You will need to turn on debugging to test and modify how you would like but here is something close to what I use. Rename the attached file to .vbs and test. GenerateComputerName.vbs.txt
  8. I use a heavily modified version of the script below. I've tested it with Windows 10 1803 and have not had any issues. It's also pretty simple to configure what you would like and not like. Another thing to note is that the provisioned apps need to also be removed and a registry entry needs to be added under each user account so that the apps will not get downloaded again in the future. https://github.com/W4RH4WK/Debloat-Windows-10 https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/68217-turn-off-automatic-installation-suggested-apps-windows-10-a.html PreInstalledAppsEnabled also needs to be set to 0.
  9. I agree with Glen and found the same things in my Lenovo Machine. I only generated that just to give a baseline as to how it could be done. Although it is possible, it would get very difficult to maintain with so many different models getting added all of the time. A generic approach would be a bit better to use.
  10. I created a script for you. You'll have to modify to your liking. Add a PostImage task in SmartDeploy pointing to this file. It needs to be part of your file system when you capture the image. The script I use is in a folder in the root of the C: drive on my image. The task will need to look like below. wscript.exe T:\RootFolder\ComputerName.vbs ComputerName.vbs.txt
  11. You can do this using a VB Script that runs in the postimage sequence. I have something similar set up so I know it can be done.
  12. I've got office 365 installed on my reference VM as well as a acrobat reader and java. Other software that is name dependent I have configured in a few install scripts that run after the deployment process.
  13. Just wanted to share another program I found that does this wonderfully. It's called DefProf from ForensIT. Essentially you set up a test profile and make all the config changes you want to it. Once you are finished log in to your main account and run an elevated command prompt and type in DefProf "userprofile" without the quotes and it copies all settings to the default profile. It's a life saver for Windows 10 and it's start menu! Just make sure that you debloat properly for all users because those apps will end up coming back regardless. I also have those scripts if needed.
  14. I have already updated the platform pack that I am using with the correct drivers. It is now working as it should on the laptop with the edits that I have done in the platform pack. I was just notifying you for future reference.
