What is the process for editing the bootstrap.ini and custom.ini RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just like to clarify something about updating the custom.ini and bootstrap.ini

    I have read that any changes made to the deployment workbench etc.. you need to update the deployment share.  

    I was having problems with skipping the BDD welcome and finally came across an article that says after editing the bootstrap you need to  completely regenerate the boot images, and then replace the old win files on wds with the new ones that have been generated.  

    I tried this and it seem to have worked and the welcome screen was skipped, is this the process for everytime I updated the bootstrap.   

    one last thing can can i update the custom.ini and the bootstrap.ini directly from the control folder ?  If i do update them will i still need to regenerate the images.

    thanks I new to MDT and want to understand what happening when editing these files

  • Consider that bootstrap.ini is what the boot media knows.  So yes any changes to that file require new boot images.

    Logs are very important. https://keithga.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/video-mdt-2013-log-files-basics-bdd-log-and-smsts-log/ Mention any customizations you have made.
