I came across something odd -- I deployed an image of an OptiPlex 9020 to a Latitude E5540.  When I right-clicked on My Computer, Properties, it shows the computer as an OptiPlex 9020 under System.  How do I get the OS to recognize the computer as a Latitude and not an OptiPlex?  Besides, creating a new image....

Answer Summary:
I found out that my WIM image was sysprepped incorrectly (there is an error log that showed that Windows Defender was not turned off). I need to recreate the image.

If you are referring to the Computer Description field, that is saved along with the image during capture.  It's not automatically set by the machine, it's manually entered.  You could devise a script to detect the model and change that, perhaps.

The computer model will be properly detected by the KACE Agent, it doesn't depend on that line.

  • No, it's not the Computer Description field, but the System section under Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, System.

    How do I attach a screen shot?
    • re edit your question and attach it that way
