Provisioning for Surface Pro

    Question

  • A few months ago I created a provisioning file with Windows Configuration Designer with the following settings:

    This would reset the Surface, create a local admin and local user, and log in automatically with the normal user; it worked great.

    Now, for some reason, it crashes and then the surface goes into a boot loop showing only the MS logo.

    I've been trying to find out what exactly has changed on the settings and I can see now that "Clean PC" is not available for Surface Hub neither is Hide OOBE.

    Which makes me wonder, which "edition" should I use for those Surface Pro devices? Mobile Device or Surface Hub?

    I don't have the luxury of spending 2h per try (because, after it crashes, the only way to recover the system is need to restore the OS).

    Thanks.

  • Perhaps the best way to provision surface is still using Windows To Go. this will be the most effective and reliable way to provision.
