Multiple OS in same task sequence RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Scenario:

    I have random different computer configurations where any of the following OS can be installed: win 7 HP, Pro, Ult or win 8.1 and 8.1 Pro.

    All drivers (apart from lan and USB) are installed as application bundles (grouped by motherboard)

    At the moment I have 5 task sequences for 5 different OS, but if any changes has to be made - I have to update all of them. Recent one - I would like to add GPU detection and automatically install correct nvidia or AMD drivers.

    Is there any chance to have one task sequence or two (win 7 and win 8.1) where I can select correct OS to be installed. or maybe have something like split task sequence.

  • I do not recommend modifications to the task sequence to override the OS source during installation. especially* for OS'es with different versions (for example one task sequence that installs either Win7 or Win 8.1).

    Typically, my recommendation is to have a master script to perform all of your *customizations* during each of the Task Sequences. As the steps in your customizations change, all you modify is your script, not the TS.
