Ignite Sessions For OEM and System Builder Partners – Windows 10 Deployment


During the just completed OEM Windows Server 2012 R2 Roadshow I mentioned several ways of keeping up with different products and technologies, and that I would create a few posts that cover these in more detail. This is the fourth post in that series, and it is focused on the sessions that were delivered at the Ignite event (the successor to TechEd and several other events) in Chicago. Windows 10 Deployment is the today's focus area that I'll cover, and include some relevant sessions for other Windows 10 technologies in the coming days.

Need help with troubleshooting Windows deployment issues? Johan and Mikael share lessons learned around handling device drivers in the deployment process, common deployment issues and their workarounds, parsing log files, WinPE and PXE troubleshooting, UEFI deployments. As a foundation, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager will be used. You can expect a lot of live demos, tips, and tricks in this session.

Upgrading to Windows 10: In Depth

With Windows 10, we are encouraging everyone, including organizations, to upgrade from their existing OS (Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1). This upgrade process is easy and reliable, but how exactly does it work? In this session, we dig deep and explore how the process works to ensure that everything (apps, settings, data, drivers) is preserved.

How Microsoft IT Deploys Windows 10

Learn how Microsoft IT adopted and deployed Windows 10 internally using Enterprise Upgrade as the primary deployment method.
