SCCM MDT TS: Rid me of BGINFO wallpaper! RRS feed

  • Question

  • My TS is closer to nirvana state, however I can't seem to figure out how to have it load my .wim and use the wallpaper I already had set for the local user (not administrator). It seems to be defaulting to the BGInfo wallpaper from the installation. Anyway to disable it? Thanks for helping the new guy!

  • Tim I have seen this more times than I like. Verify that the wallpaper goes away after a reboot. If it does, the deployment guys have a script that will make your computer reboot AFTER the TS sequence is complete. This has always worked for me, and also gives me something that I love with MDT, but miss in SCCM. Check it out:

  • Are you referring to the background images that show you what step of the process the task sequence is on? If so, from within your MDT task sequence, remove the "Set Status" steps. (There are five or six spread throughout the task sequence.)

  • Sorry Tim, you may need to be a little more specific. There are a few issues that float around in regards the SCCM status wallpaper. When first reading it I assumed you were talking about the issue where the status wallpaper shows up as the user's background on first login. Can you clarify?

  • Sorry, I wasn't specific enough. The MDT Task runs perfectly fine and loads my .wim just fine. Its when I boot up, and log in. It replaces the wallpaper I had set in my .wim file with the SCCM BGInfo wallpaper. I just want to use the wallpaper on the logins that I set when creating my .wim file.

    Thanks for the help!

  • Wow. I was too busy looking into my TS steps, trying different things that I didn't even give it a simple reboot. The wallpaper I set in the .wim did return after a successful reboot. Thanks for your help!
