Thought I'd share something I needed to call support on yesterday, since one of my postinstallation tasks needed a reboot prior to running and by default the C:\KACE folder gets wiped on the final reboot. Currently no KB on this and I didn't see much here in the forums, so hopefully this can help someone.

* note - separate EXEs for x86 and x64:

* for x86, copy ksleep.exe from \\ikbox\peinst\winpe_build\x86\windows\system32
and rename to ksleep32.exe prior to creating Postinstallation Task

* for x64, copy ksleep.exe from \\ikbox\peinst\winpe_build\amd64\windows\system32
and rename to ksleep64.exe prior to creating Postinstallation Task
