Windows 10

Just received Windows 10 in my Microsoft Licensing site. Edu, Enterprise and Pro are all there. I was watching videos on the upgrade process and am now trolling for the best way to just let PDQ Deploy take care of it for me.

Of course, with any new OS there's not a lot of info out there on the unattended install. Shoot, I can't even find a version of RSAT that will work with the latest build - but anyway, I was trolling here to see if the conversation had started up, and if it hadn't I planned on starting it.

I am guessing that firing off a regular "setup.exe /Auto:Upgrade /Quiet /DynamicUpdate Enable" will work, but is there a powershell script or unattended.xml out there for Windows 10 yet?


BTW< PDQ Inventory and PDQ Deploy 7 Beta 1 both work perfectly on Windows 10 Enterprise.

  • Hello Thimothy, have u figure out this? I downloaded the Windows 10 upgrade and I'm upgrading computers manually. If PDQ is able to help deploying this upgrade I'll be happy!

    Thank You
  • Hi Timothy,

    I know this comes late but wanted to answer this in case others (like Leonidas) want some guidance on deploying Windows 10 now that it’s much less a mysterious riddle puzzle Gordian knot than it was a month or two ago.

    It needs to be said, by way of disclaimer, that Admin Arsenal products should not, at this time, be used to deploy operating systems. There are other products out there designed for that purpose.

    That being said, there’s a lot of guidance out there in the world now. Here’s an overview of the upgrade and deployment options for Windows 10.

    I’ve reviewed the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit MDT upgrade option, and that seems like a reasonable solution, though more old school than the new and improved tool sets out there.

    For images, there are a few choices. The Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer is built for Windows 10, and comes in the Windows 10 ADK.

    If you’re deploying to multiple sites, you can use DFS to replicate the Windows 10 shares.
