Update to Windows 10 Staff Task Sequence on Friday 3rd May

Dear Colleagues,

On Friday 3rd May, from 8:00 am to 9:00 am, the Windows 10 Staff Task Sequences and Windows Upgrade Task Sequences will be edited in order to remove the Software Update installation step. This step was causing the Task Sequence to run for long periods of time or time out.

The Windows Software Updates will now be injected into the image and the rest of the Software Updates will be installed post build.

The Task Sequences will be at risk during this period. It is therefore recommended that you do not attempt to image any Windows 10 staff computers at this time.

Update to Windows 10 Staff Task Sequence

Dear Colleagues,

On Friday 12th April, from 8:00 am to 9:00 am, the Windows 10 Staff Task Sequence will be updated to provide support for the following additional Dell laptops:

  • Latitude 7490
  • XPS 13 9380
  • XPS 15 9570

The Task Sequences will be at risk during this period. It is therefore recommended that you do not attempt to image any Windows 10 staff computers at this time.

CAN I GET MORE INFORMATION AND HELP?

Prevent Toshiba Z30s upgrading from 1607 to 1709

Dear Colleagues,

It has been identified that when the Toshiba Z30 models are upgraded from 1607 to 1709 it adds a considerable time to the boot process. Further issues have been identified such as being unable to get a wireless connection.
The mandatory date for PCs to migrate to 1709 was the 25/03/2019 but I have now prevented the upgraded on Z30s.

We are currently working with McAfee to resolve the problem and will update you as soon as we have a fix or a workaround.

Please do not hesitate to log a case and pass to EUC if you have any questions

Kind Regards
Gary

Upgrade Configuration Manager from 1710 to 1810

Dear Colleagues,

Configuration Manager will be unavailable during the above dates due to being upgraded to the latest version which is 1810. The upgrade is required in order to be fully supported by Microsoft and to take advantage of the new features.

During this time you will be unable to reimage or upgrade PCs or run applications via the Software Centre.
Once the upgrade is completed and a full QA carried out then a further correspondence will be sent.
