The SCCM 2007 OS deployment and web server certificates have been renewed. The SCCM Task Sequence Media has been updated. As a result, the latest Task Sequence Media is now TS_Media_x64_Mar15.
HOW WILL THE WORKS AFFECT ME?
Your task sequence media will stop working tonight and you will need to update your USB sticks or CDs to the latest version. This is available from \\ws2.lboro.ac.uk\DesktopResource\Windows\W7\common\TaskSequenceMedia.
Note that the wallpaper on the boot image now reads Boot media created “10th March 2015”, and some Viglen network drivers have been added.
To recreate the Task Sequence Media, follow the instructions \\ws2.lboro.ac.uk\DesktopResource\Windows\W7\common\Procedures\Installing Windows 7 Service V2-1.docx
As the boot image package has changed there will be a different boot image in custom task sequences which leads to an extra download and reboot at the beginning. We have updated any custom task sequences we are aware of being used in Mac labs to prevent this breaking the Mac imaging process. We have updated the LIVE task sequence and the template and all other task sequences will continue to work.
If you want to update your custom task sequence to speed it up then:
Right click your task sequence and go to properties
Select the advanced tab
At “Use a boot image” select browse
Select x64\SCCMSP2x64_Mar15 US en-US and OK
Click Ok to close the task sequence properties.
The April 2014 Task sequence media will stop working tonight. The new boot media image is now available.
