I’ve been playing around with Windows Autopilot recently and so I decided to do another video showing you a run through of the process involved in using this new technology from Microsoft.
There are a few pre-requisites you will need in place before you can fly with this (sorry )
- Microsoft Windows 10 1703 or higher
- A device with Windows 10 installed – I used a VM in this demo
- Microsoft Azure Premium (P1 or P2)
- Microsoft Intune
- Windows Store for Business
You will of course need an admin account in your Azure Portal to make the necessary configuration and an end user account which can be a simple domain user however must have an EMS/Intune licence assigned to the user with your Azure Active Directory.
A couple of link I used in the video are here:
- Paul Winstanley’s blog post via Microsoft TechNet UK – https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/uktechnet/2017/09/26/implementing-windows-autopilot-the-future-of-device-deployment/
- Error messages for Windows AutoPilot – https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-store/add-profile-to-devices#autopilot-device-information-file-error-messages
- Microsoft (Michael Niehaus) link for PowerShell – https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/Get-WindowsAutoPilotInfo/1.1/DisplayScript
The PowerShell used is:
wmic bios get serialnumber
Get-ItemPropertyValue "hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DefaultProductKey\" "ProductId"
$wmi = Get-WMIObject -Namespace root/cimv2/mdm/dmmap -Class MDM_DevDetail_Ext01 -Filter "InstanceID='Ext' AND ParentID='./DevDetail'" $wmi.DeviceHardwareData | Out-File "($env:COMPUTERNAME).txt"
Also, these are the manufacturers that have so far signed up to the AutoPilot scheme and should be able to provide you the necessary information to import into AutoPilot:
- Microsoft Surface
