Does Standard OS Deployment Task Sequence Clean the MBR Before Installing OS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If a workstation is infected with a rootkit, would running a standard OS deployment remove the rootkt by running diskpart /clean by default or would we need to add that command as an additional step in the task sequence?
