f8 during OSD RRS feed

  • Question

  • we have just upgraded to CM2012 1602. We are no longer able to press F8 during an OSD to bring up the CMD window. I also do not see any option on the Boot.wim to enable F8. Was this taken away in 1602?  And if it was how do you capture log files during a failed OSD?

    Thank you.

  • Dear Sir,

        Does your boot image properties page look like below? There are no Drivers/Customization tabs on it. Like Jörgen said only the boot images which match your ADK version in your site server will show those tabs and allow you to enable F8 command support. If there're no such boot images in your console, you could add them into it from the location (C:\Program Files(x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Windows Preinstallation Environment\amd64(x86)\en-us\yourwinpe.wim).

       

    Best regards,

    Jimmy

  • Hi,

    It is still there, you can only modify boot images with the same version of ADK that is installed on the Primary Site Server. So if you have ADK 10586 installed you can modify and add F8 support for ADK 10586 WinPE boot images. Older boot images can no longer be modified from within the console and therefor you do not see that option.

    Are you using the same version of WinPE as the installed version of the ADK?

  • Dear Sir,

        Also you could enable the commandline support in your winpe by using the wbemteset, take a look at this blog please:
