  • Also, in addition to the logs, how are you starting the MDT script??  Inside Windows or through Windows PE?  I believe in a refresh scenario, MDT keeps the computer name

  • Can you post logs? 

    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.

    What Q is saying is true.  You can't really change the name during an upgrade or refresh.

    There is lots of useful information in the FAQ. Look there first.
