Good Morning,

We are new to Kace and imaging as a whole.  I installed Windows Ent 10 as a scripted install on a VM.  A plain vanilla install.  Once it booted for the first time I hit CTRL-Shift-F3 to enter audit mode.  We made the changes to the image as needed and imaged with Kace.  

Upon boot the Terms of Service popped up, the  ability to choose your wireless or connection, and the Use Express settings show up.

How can we bypass all this stuff?  It is for a corporate image and this would not be good to do if we have ti image hundreds of systems.

Thank you

here is the answer file I created: you can take and make minor changes to brand it to your org and
use it.  (You will want to remove the task bar links) Left as example if you want to add any of your own.

    • Thank you for that. I had a similar thread and they just put in a couple things. This link brings it all together for us. Windows 7 was much easier to image than this.

      I am now creating the gold image. Thank goodness for VMWare and Snapshots.

You need to look into creating a sysprep answer file, this will allow you to configure those settings so they don't prompt the end user after every image.

KACE has a Sysprep Creator I believe, you could also build one here: http://windowsafg.no-ip.org/

Or you could do it the official but complicated way by using the Windows 10 ADK: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=526740

Instead of doing audit mode when you build your images, run sysprep at command line with some switches:

C:\Windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /generalize /oobe /unattend:unattend.xml

Thanks for the input.  Do I even have to use Audit Mode?  Could I just log in as a local admin to the image?

  • You do not need Audit Mode.Just log in as admin, makes the changes you need and then use the Sysprep Creator Wizard that will guide you through the process.

ctrl+shift+F3 usually will do the trick and allow you to login without filling all that stuff and put you through to audit mode.
