A few weeks ago I changed a lot within my LAB: I divided the Clients from the Servers into separate VLANs to have a more accurate Lab.
Now I wanted to install a VM on my Windows 10 Hyper-V environment, but when I tried to boot PXE, the machine stays for a while on this status:
Performing DHCP Negotiation
I recently faced the issue, that the .Net 4.5.2 Application, which is working very well if deployed to a installed Windows 7 Client, but when I tried to use the same application within the OSD Task Sequence with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, the Installation constantly fails with the Error:
Process 4000 terminated with exitcode: 16389
Hi, here’s Martin again with a blog about how to Display a Special Lock Screen, when the Operating System Deployment Task Sequence Fails. When you are using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, you might want to have an easy solution to see, if a OSD was successful or not. Normally you see this Picture after a Windows 8.1 OSD:
Refer to this Blog post, I decided to create a new one about including Hotfixes in OSD. Specially the new Release of SCCM 2012 R2 brings an annoying issue with extremly slow Downloads while on OSD (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2910552 ; this Hotfix superseding the KB2905002 which was first used in this blog).

Hi there, here’s Martin again.
My last Blog Post was about to create a Windows 8.1 To Go deployment with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager R2, and which configurations are required or are nice to set. In this Blog post, I tell you about how I expand the Task Sequence with enabling Bitlocker for the Windows ToGo and how to set a computername. Continue reading

Hey, here is Martin again.
One of the most viewed article on this blog is about this Topic. I will give a small update for the new System Center 2012 Configuration Manager R2 release. Thus this release now supports to run most of the cmdlets for SCCM also in x64 mode (exceptions see: http://technet.microsoft.com/library/dn236347.aspx). Continue reading
Today I would like to tell about my struggles when I tried to implement Windows 8.1 Togo with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager R2.
First, I would highly recommend to use this TechNet article as starting Point:
Let me Point out two hints to this “How to”:
1. Do not forget to set the Task Sequence Variable “SMSTSPreferredAdvertID”! (See TechNet link above)
