I’ve recently finished our companies Windows 10 reference image using MDT 2013 Update 1 to perform the build and capture. Then using Configuration Manager 2012 R2 SP1 CU1 + some hotfixes to deploy the reference image.

There have been a number of issues that I’ve had to find solutions for over the past 8 weeks not withstanding the numerous bugs in the RTM version of MDT 2013 Update 1.

These have included:

  • Setting default file type associations
  • Implementing┬ácustom branding such as lockscreen wallpaper and disabling the default hero wallpaper at login
  • Removing selected Windows 10 modern applications
  • Blocking Windows 10 modern applications that can’t be removed with App Locker
  • Creating a┬ádefault custom start menu layout
  • Pinning default items to the taskbar
  • Group Policy settings, in particular for Edge and Internet Explorer 11 Co-Existence
  • USMT 10 implementation and data migration

Over the next week or two, I will be blogging on these topics and how I’ve implemented a solution to each.
