Systems Deployment Question
Deploying an image via USB drive
I created a KBE boot device on a thumb drive and then added my image file to it per the instructions on the K2000. Everything seems to go fine until it gets to the 'Set Engine Run Key' step where it pauses with an 'Open File - Security Warning' for the VBS script it's attempting to run. From this point forward, every post-install task either stops with this warning or a Windows Defender Smart Screen warning. Quite a hassle to approve each step along the way. While the task is waiting for a response from me, I can get into Internet Options, Security and change the Custom level flag for 'Launching applications and unsafe files' to Enable and the remaining tasks complete without my intervention. Seems like an unnecessary step. I opened a ticket with Quest support and they suggested it was because I was deploying a UEFI image from a USB drive formatted NTFS. I explained my image was greater than 5GB so formatting the single thumb drive as FAT32/EFI was not an option. They had me create a second thumb drive: one formatted as FAT32/EFI for the KBE and one NTFS that had my image files. Booting to the FAT32 KBE while the NTFS drive was in another USB slot seemed to deploy the image OK but I still get the security warning popups. Happens with Windows 10 x64 v1809 and v1903. SDA is 7.0.357.
