  1. What do you need help with? Is it just setting up the scripts to remove stuff?

    Windows 10 Default user

    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.

    Custom Rename

    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
  4. 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.

    Custom Rename

    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.

    Custom Rename

    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

    Custom Rename

    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.

    Software Install Step

    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.
  9. 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.

    HP EliteBook 8470p

    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.
  11. The Wi-Fi and Audio drivers for the HP EliteBook 8470p on Windows 7 and Windows 7 x64 are not included in the PlatformPack. I have manually added them to my pack but would like to inform you for future updates. The audio installer is there but not the INF files. The wireless drivers that I used were for Intel and I got them from here: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000017246.html Thank You.

    Media creation over network

    What you can do is create an ISO file with the SmartDeploy Media Wizard and then use a tool like rufus on the computer that the USB drive is plugged in to. Rufus will allow you to basically turn your USB drive into a copy of the CD. I know it's not exactly making a USB drive "over the network" but it will work.

    Default Local Profile Windows 10

    I was able to do this multiple times before finally capturing the completed image. It works great on Win7. I basically just copied the x64 portion from above and pasted it into a notepad and saved as unattend.xml in the c:\windows\system32\sysprep directory of the machine that you are working on. I was unable to run the command “sysprep /generalize /OOBE /reboot /unattend:[path to the unattend file]” due to sysprep currently running already. In the sysprep box that is on the screen, make sure you check the generalize box. The dropdowns should be set as "enter system out of box experience" and "Reboot". Press OK and the system will begin to sysprep the machine.

    Capture Wizard Error

    I have also received this error message after upgrading from 1020 to 1050. The workaround was to boot the virtual machine from the network via PXE or through the SmartDeploy Media located at the following locations: c:\Program Files (x86)\SmartDeploy\SmartDeploy Enterprise\SmartDeploy_x64.iso for 64-bit systems or c:\Program Files (x86)\SmartDeploy\SmartDeploy Enterprise\SMartDeploy_x86.iso for 32-bit systems Once you are booted, you should be able to access a network share to then capture the image.
