Upgrading to W10 with Offline media RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guy,

    I created MDT offline media to upgrade W7 to W10 on machines that are not on the network and or sccm. The only change I made to the "Standard Client Upgrade Task Sequence" is to install the latest version of McAfee and to reboot after the fact. The current version of McAfee on our systems causes W10 upgrade to fail.

    If I launch the litetouch.vbs script from a USB Stick everything seems to work fine. The only issue I had was after the machine was rebooted the TS never resumed. I was able to fix this by adding a shortcut to litetouch.wsf into the startup folder.

    The reason for my post: Ideally I want the users to be able to download the offline media locally and run it. The first issue I had was that the litetouch script triggering a UNC deployment method. I modified the script as follows to force it to "Media" method:

           DeployDir = ofso.getparentfoldername(ofso.getparentfoldername(WScript.ScriptFullName))

            bFoundMedia = True
            oEnvironment.Item("DeployRoot") = DeployDir
            oEnvironment.Item("ResourceRoot") = DeployDir
            oEnvironment.Item("DeploymentMethod") = "MEDIA"

    This works until the TS reboots. It doesn't resume and it actually deletes the shortcut I made in startup before it reboots. If I run the litetouch manually it gives me the "there's already a TS running message".

    Is there a way to get Offline Media to run on the local harddrive?

    Thanks for you help!

  • There is no supported method of pre-staging Upgrade media. ConfigMgr has the ability to do something like this however.

    Logs are very important. https://keithga.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/video-mdt-2013-log-files-basics-bdd-log-and-smsts-log/ Mention any customizations you have made.
