First I want to say thank you very much for putting this information out there. I very much enjoy reading and learning new methods!
Secondly, I would like to ask, with Windows 7 coming to EOS in 2020, are you faced with any challenges in migration from 7 to 10 in your environment? In mine (a hospital) we have a large number of Windows 7 endpoints that need to be updated. What I would like to do is update them all to Windows 10 without touching them. Are you aware of any way I can push an “upgrade” using PS that will keep everything the same on the computer, so theres minimal interaction required, if any?
Not a problem! Look into In Place Upgrade task sequences – either with SCCM/MDT or just with MDT.
Hi Joseph, Thanks for the great site. I just downloaded this and before I get to far in, is all this info still relevant with new server OS’s and latest version of Windows 10?
It is! Just make sure to grab the latest versions of MDT and ADK from Microsoft. All of the core tools/steps are the same.
