I have a Hyper-V lab set up with a VM running a DC with DHCP, a VM with SCCM Technical Preview 4 and SQL 2012 SP1, and will be testing deploying Windows 10 eval to a Hyper-V Generation 2 VM
I have made sure that my DP can respond to PXE requests. In my case, I am not using unknown computer support as I will import the MAC address of my hyper-v machine into a collection where I have deployed my task sequence to as required.
I have gone to the Software Library node and made a copy of the install.wim to my machine. (install.wim is from the sources directory on the iso for Windows 10)
After I added my Windows 10 .wim I distributed it to my DP.Now I will be creating my very basic task sequence.
I will be using an existing image package that I created before.
Make note here I haven’t selected a Domain OU. This will put the computer in the default Computers container. If you specify the default Computers container, the Task Sequence will fail.
I left all other options as default. I then right clicked on my Task Sequence and clicked edit, I added the variable below so my installation of Windows 10 will use C:\ rather than X:\ for the drive letter where the OS will be installed.
I then deployed my Task Sequence as required
Creating the Hyper-V Gen 2 machine:
Right click on your Hyper-V host and select New Virtual Machine
Click next at Before you begin screen
Enter the name of your Virtual Machine
I am going to deploy a Windows 10 machine so I selected Generation 2
I am using 2GB for dynamic memory
I have made a Private virtual switch so only my VM’s can communicate (Domain controller, SCCM server and this)
I have left these settings as default
I will be installing the image via PXE so I have ticked the last checkbox
Then click Finish
I then turned on my virtual machine and turned it off. This is because I have a Dynamic MAC Address. If you check the Networking tab you can see it has created the MAC address. We will import this MAC address into SCCM to deploy the image
In the SCCM 2012/Technical Preview console, Select “Import Computer Information” to import the MAC address of the VM created
Select Import single computer
Type in the name of the computer and MAC address and click Next then Next again.
Select to add new computers only to the All Systems collection and keep clicking next until the end of the wizard
In the All Systems collection, I will add the new computer into my collection where I have deployed the task sequence to as Required (Win10Deployment)
Once my collection where I have the task sequence to has updated, I will power on my VM to download the image.
