Update version from 1511 to 1909 with pdq deploy



  • J.B. Cummings

    Here is the command I use to upgrade Enterprise editions.  I've only ever done this moving one edition at a time (ex 1809 to 1903).

    C:\1909\setup.exe /auto upgrade /quiet /noreboot /showoobe none /DynamicUpdate disable /PKey xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx /compat IgnoreWarning

    If you're going from 1511 -> 1909, I'm going to guess you may have some software, such as an antivirus, that is incompatible with 1909.  

    You'll want to start digging into logs, most of them are in a hidden directory off the root such as $Windows.~WS or $Windows.~BT.

    Uninstall the drivers for PDF printer and XPS printer.

    DISM /online /disable-feature /featurename:Printing-PrintToPDFServices-Features
    DISM /online /disable-feature /featurename:Printing-XPSServices-Features

    Stop WSUS if active. Stop Windows Updates and delete the C:\SoftwareDistribution folder.

    C:\Windows_10_1909_Installer\setup.exe /auto upgrade /quiet /NoReboot /BitLocker AlwaysSuspend /CopyLogs C:\Temp\Logfiles.log    is what I use.

    You will probably have issues with the video driver an hard drive controllers, but you can try updating all drivers to the newest versions. Microsoft doesn't make this process easy.
