eufi partition on MDT 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using LT for deploying Windows desktop with MDT 2013. What I would like to do is to be able to customize the partition layout for any eufi capable system. I know how to create a diskpart script to do the job. If I am going to create a custom Task sequence for the eufi layout, how does MDT handle the situation if the system is not uefi capable\enabled?

    Thanks

  • OK, I think I found my own solution. I actually don't need to run the diskpart script. All I have to do is to change the default partition size on ztidiskpark.wsf and that is it.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You can create an answer file to customize disk configuration.

    DiskConfiguration

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff715671.aspx

    The unattended file is applied to both BIOS-Based and UEFI-based computers. If you don’t want the configuration applied, you have to remove the file.

    In addition, answer file should be placed to the right place.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi, thanks for the reply.

    I did disable the default format and partition disk TS and created a custom one with diskpart script. The disk formatting went fine but it failed in the Inject Drivers TS. This is no problem if I use the default format and partition disk TS. Do you know any potential cause? Thanks
