Format and Partition Task Sequence Not Working As Exprected When Using USB Media RRS feed

  • Question

  • Task looks like this. 

    Had been working on PXE based task sequence, but when I use USB media, it only makes a single partition that is around the size of the USB thumb drive.

    How does this need to be changed so that it makes a C drive partition that is 80% of the total local disk space and a D drive that uses the remaining disk space when using USB boot media?

  • This is what actually happens.

  • It is partitioning the drive, but using them correctly. OS should be "C" and DATA should be "D."

  • If you choose to create a "custom" partition configuration like the one above, then you are responsible for creating any extra required partitions like a BitLocker boot partition.

    Additionally, if you are deploying on a uEFI machine, then you will also need to create the correct uEFI partitions.

    Generally I discourage creating extra partitions.
