The MDT 2013u2’s “Litetouch OEM Task Sequence” does not partition UEFI drives using GPT

By | August 26, 2016

Before: After: Copy the corrected “Format and Partition..” steps from your deployment TS.

By | August 10, 2016

Scenario: Customer needed to lock down a specific user account in Windows 10, without effecting the local Administrator account. Unit was not going to be joining a Domain. LGPO was the only available free alternative.
