Feature request, include Powershell with SmartPE boot media

Recommended Posts

Hey,

Just wondering if anyone knows whether it's possible to run powershell commands/scripts in the SmartPE, eg, in the POSTIMAGE phase?

Edit: changed subject.

So I seem to have successfully added powershell to my SmartPE ISO.

Extracted the ISO, applied the steps in the MS link above to the boot.wim, regenerated a new ISO.

I sure wish SmartDeploy Media Wizard incorporated this. Having Powershell available opens up so many possibilities.

Feature request :)

Hmmm... Modifying the boot.win will not break the SmartDeploy license?

Functionally, not that i can tell, works great.

In terms of the agreement, they stated above that it's not supported. Which I accept.

I just don't understand why not, why is powershell not made a native component of SmartPE? It's physically possible and has some great advantages, it seems a pity.

Agree.  Especially when VBScript is not the preferred method any longer in terms of scripting within a Windows environment.

I know what I am saying are feature requests..

In Tasks: 

Allow to select the type of script being executed instead of having to wrap it within a batch file or calling out vbscript.

Possible a script / text area so you paste in your script code into a task.

Yay that I'm not the only one.

Changed the subject of my OP to maybe draw some attention. Powershell support for tasks that occur during the deploy wizard would be such an upgrade, even a selling point IMO.
