The OS Deployment for the hardware models “Dell Latitude E7440” and “Dell Latitude E7240” is full of pitfalls. O.k., two things are a little bit special (I think the same will be for other hardware vendors):
- NIC Driver from Dell Homepage not working
- OSD error while installing drivers –> Kernel Mode Driver Framework (KMDF) Update needed (error: Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows click OK to restart the computer, and then restart the installation)
There are a few new Bitlocker features for the OS Deployment in SCCM 2012 SP1 Beta related to Windows 8.
In Windows 7, the encryption ot a volume takes several hours. Working in this time is lazy… With WinPE 3.0 it’s possible to activate Bitlocker BEFORE intalling the operating system –> it’s named “pre-provisioning”.
