Windows Could Not parse or process unattend answer file for pass [specialize] in MDT

Here is an issue that took me a while to track down and resolve. Scenario is a small MDT2013 environment that has been upgraded from MDT 2012 Update 1 and MDT 2012 before that. It has a few TS but the two used mostly are to Deploy Windows 7 64-Bit and Build and Capture. Each quarter I do a B&C via this second TS. Nothing has changed in years for this TS. It applies install.WIM (from DVD s...

ConfigMgr and Office365 Click-to-Run

Like many organizations we are migrating towards cloud offerings where it makes sense, and Office is no exception. With that said, we have begun transitioning from the MSI install of Office 2013 to  Click-to-run via Office 365 (O365). With my orga...

Driver is not applicable to any supported platform

"The selected driver is not applicable to any supported platforms."Wait, what? We are on SCCM 2012 R2 CU3 (CU4 any day!) so we should not get something like this. Did I somehow get some secret Windows 10 drivers somehow? Lots of mis-written INF files? ...

One Time Task Sequence Driver Injection

Its that time again, testing out new equipment. Today I am looking at the Toshiba PORTÉGÉ Z20t-B at the moment. Nice device IMO, pretty new. Traditionally we use DELL so the drivers provided via Toshiba  Laptop Builder are formatted different then the CABs that DELL Provides. While all our Task Sequences were created to be brand agnostic, we did have to create some str...

Quicker parsing of Apply Driver steps

Was talking to someone at the local user group and he (Thanks for the Jamba Juice John!) was curious how I was handling driver detection in the TS so quickly so I thought it would be something to share with everyone else as well.With that said, I have a question for you. How many hardware models does your TS support? When we had XP, its TS supported nearly 80 different models. With W7 its 43 as of...
