You come into the office Monday morning to find someone deleted your AD machine account.  First, it’s no surprise as it is Monday.  Rather than logging in locally to re-join the domain, you can use the Restore-ADObject PowerShell cmdlet to quickly restore the account. Verify the machine account exists in the Deleted Objects container: *replace […]

The default SCCM boot media background image is plain and boring… I think most of you would agree.  The other day I found myself with a few minutes for some creative time so I decided to create a retro inspired background image.  I wanted to post for anyone who shares my love of 16-bit awesomeness!  Click […]

Good morning!  Today I am in the process of certifying new Dell models for Windows 7.  This is normally a pretty simply task but the Dell Precision 7710 is fighting back.  I have created a driver package using the latest drivers available and set it up in OSD.  However, after installing the drivers and rebooting […]

      Todd - Hey, if you’re not seeing your local disks when booting to the SCCM boot media you’ll need to add the proper mass storage controller drivers to your boot media. It’s the same process if you were missing network drivers. 1) Download the correct drivers from the vendors site. 2) Test the drivers to confirm they indeed function in WinPE. 3) Import the drivers and add to your boot media. 4) Update the content for the boot media you modified.

      Note: It’s always advised to check the logs to get a better idea of what’s happening. In your case you should review the smsts.log file.

      Hope this helps!ReplyCancel

Have you run into issues where your OSD task sequence deployments are not immediately available to your clients?  This appears to be a bug since upgrading to SCCM 2012 R2 SP1.  Since the upgrade, when deploying OSD task sequences they do not become available to the client until the next day. If you are experiencing […]

This morning I ran into some errors when making changes to an OSD task sequence.  The first was after adding a new driver package and trying to save the changes.  ‘Failed to save the TS package instance due to error 80041001.’ I also tried to modify the boot media assigned to the task sequence and […]
