    I was planning on updating to 1606 this weekend. Should I install this version instead? Is there documentation on know issues and how to avoid them?

    It looks like the Task Sequence Import bug in 1606 is still busted in this hotfix.. (Any TS with a Software Updates Step will fail to import)

  3. Hi,

    I am planning to migrate SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 to 1606, Please share the migration document if you have.

    Just a quick note guys, it looks like every time a version upgrade is applied the boot.wim WinPE images are reverting to a previous version. This is causing the following hotfix having to be applied over again: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3143760

    So far i have had to apply this hotfix regarding the boot.wim WinPE images three times, and its been after a System Center Configuration Manager update.
