Update to Windows 10 Staff Re-Image Task Sequence

Dear Colleagues,

On Friday 13th December, from 8:00am to 10:00pm, the Windows 10 Staff Re-Image Task Sequence will be updated.

New versions of Sassafras Client, McAfee ePO Agent and Symantec Endpoint Protection will be added.

Intel Optane disk storage drivers will be updated to avoid an issue that may potentially cause the loss of end user data or render a system inoperable. In order to support the updated storage drivers the Task Sequence Media will have to be updated as part of this change.

The Task Sequence 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.

Please contact our Service Desk at it.services@lboro.ac.uk for more information
