  • Regarding bare metal setup: How do does the GUID or MAC land in the SCCM Unknown collection automatically?  Does the PXE boot media handle that for us?

  • Hi MDT Team,

    In TechNet Radio podcast of what month will my (Chirag Goradia) question above be taken up?

    I heard the podcast of 28Oct08, but couldn't find any helpful info for the question I have.

    If SCCM and/or MDT are not capable to achieve it, then I would like to know that too.

  • Issues with MDT 2013 and computers with SSDs. Constantly getting cannot connect to deployment share after the first reboot. If you click retry it just continues with the install. Is there anyway that you can put a pause into the script that when it goes to connect to the deployment share it pauses until it can connect?
