In this webcast, I discuss the step-by-step instructions required to perform a Dell Factory Imaging “smoke” test using a Dell laptop/desktop to validate your SCCM (ConfigMgr) Windows 10 task sequence using offline standalone media. This process helps validate the Dell SCCM boot in the factory process and can be used as part of your Dell bulk ordering process.
In this post Webcast: How-to Video: Dell CFI Smoke Testing Windows 10 SCCM Task Sequence, I’ll deep dive into the technical SCCM requirements to successfully smoke test your SCCM Windows 10 task sequence before submission to the Dell imaging factory.
My GitHub location for the smoke test partitioning and Dell Driver staging script files and presentation can be found here.
