  1. Hi, New to Smart Deploy - so hoping somebody has a simple answer to this one! We are deploying Windows 10 Professional via SmartDeploy from original MS media - no bloatware in theory. When Windows 10 is deployed, it insists on displaying various entertainment Apps in the tiles section of the Start Menu - Candy Crush seems particularly determined and tenacious. We have tried uninstalling apps before imaging, and have seen discussions about creating a custom XML file. However, this does not stop items reinstalling the first time the machine starts. We would like an easy way to customise the Start Menu so it displays business apps (office and a LOB) and a small amount of content e.g weather, news. Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.

  2. After installing Windows 10 Creators update about 10 new icons show up at Start after deployment. This does not occur in virtual golden image machine, only at the newly deployed comuters. When clicking them no apps are opened, and one can just right click and delete them one by one, but that's a pain in the *ss. Pls see image attached.
  3. Why are there no platform packs for so many modern machines? For example, I have many Intel NUC5i5RY models with 16GB RAM and SSD drives, that will happily run Windows 10 and are supported however,I cannot use Smartdeploy to deploy to these because the only platform packs are for Windows 7 (so with no platform back, after network deployment starts and the machine loads SmartPM it has no network and thus cannot deploy). This is just one example of the limits we are running into with this software. Support is frequently not helpful and seem like they are just in a hurry to get you off their back. Anybody else having similar issues?
  4. To my knowledge a Hyper-V UEFI VM can only be made with the generation 2 VM, which I've read is not supported by SmartDeploy. Is there some workaround to make a UEFI image that I don't know about? Or is it just not possible with Hyper-V?
  5. Today I started attempting to draft my first Windows 10 Creator's Update image. I downloaded the ISO from Microsoft. I usually create my VM in Hyper-V 1st generation. I decided to start as simple as possible with my image just to make sure I could deploy the literal basic install of the new version of Windows 10. So I left the VM disconnected from any network and simply installed Windows 10 Creator's Update successfully. Everything was fine. I then booted my VM to the SmartDeploy .ISO capture/deploy environment and successfully captured the .WIM to a network drive. After the .WIM was captured I stayed in the SmartDeploy .ISO capture/deploy environment and began to deploy the image I had just captured from the VM to the VM. The deployment finishes and the VM restarts to begin Sysprep but fails with the message I am attaching as an image to this post. (I will also attach the log the Sysprep error message refers to) After closing that message the VM restarts into Windows and I can see the login screen- then suddenly the screen just goes black and stays that way indefinitely. I can CTRL+ALT+DEL and that functions, but basically Windows is just broken and not going to work for real. TLDR has anyone else tried to make a Windows 10 Creator's Update image yet? I would love any tips to make this work. OR is there something actually happening here to prevent me from making an image of the new update? setupact.log
  6. Dear SD Team, I currently having an issue when capturing the windows 10 image. It is showing that "there is not enough space on the disk" however the destination drive of the image is still over 500 Gb of free space. Kindly Advice on how to resolve the capturing image Issue. Please check the attached file.
  7. I am having a problem capturing a brand new Windows 10 x86 image. When I attempt to capture it an error pops up stating that the VM appears to have been upgraded. I am confused as this was hand built from scratch as a new VM/Image from Windows 10 media/ISOs. I am not sure why I am receiving this error since the version of windows in the image is 10.0.10586. Any thoughts? Below is the error received: Thanks! Ron
  8. This is just a inquiry for some information or a video if possible. I know that Smart-deploy can deploy windows 10 to any platform in Bios/Legacy mode and there are numerous videos on this process. Is there a video out there that shows deploying an image in UEFI Native Mode? If there is please share the link/site with me. I have tried everything possible to deploy to a HP 1040 G1 with UEFI Native with secure boot enable. No issues with deploying to Bios/Legacy Mode. This process works like a charm.
  9. Hello, Has anyone figured out how to deploy Win10 without it prompting for the product key during installation? I'm not using a volume license so I can't stick it in prior to installation. It looks like Win10 might support ei.cfg in the sources folder, but I'm not sure of the format nor if it would work with SmartDeploy; my few attempts have failed miserably. -DJ
  10. Hello, Following a few captures and deploys of windows 10 to a couple machines, I've found that the base windows 10 apps aren't installed correctly. Here's how they show up: Any idea what's causing this or how to get it resolved?
