[MDT] Sysprep and capture, and OOBE


  • Hi my friends, I'm experiencing a little issue.

    I want to deploy custom images with OOBE. In other terms, when a client boot his computer for the first time, I want Welcome window display, and ask for account name, etc.

    But now, when I boot client computer, it auto-signs in to an administrator session and finish MDT deployment. Please help me understand.  

    Let's me explain how i proceed. First, I installed with an iso file my Windows, and when I get welcome windows, I enter in audit mode to add some programs etc. Then I launched my \\ServerMDT\DeploymentShare$\Scripts\LiteTouch.vbs to start Sysprep.

    It reboots, and I am able to boot PXE and start capturing. Works like a charm. Now I upload my captured image in another DeploymentShare using a Standard Client Task Sequence to deploy my captured image. I updated my new DeploymentShare, etc.

    The deployment looks to work great. But when it reboots, it signs in without asking for password or else, and finalize deployment. My programs are here, it is OK. But I haven't my OOBE.

    What I misunderstood ? Help me guys...

  • Why you need MDT for, then WDS would have done the trick instead. If you just want to deploy an image.

    MDT's advantage is that you specify computername upfront before deployment, so there is no need to use the OOBE.
