[SOLVED] Win10 to via PDQ Deploy, anyone? – Windows 10 – Spiceworks
I did check out some questions already posted about this topic, but could not get a definite answer. Anyways, we currently have about 30 machines with Windows 10 , and I heard that Microsoft is ending support on the very soon, so I was wondering if there is a way to upgrade using PDQ Deploy.
I have looked at their support articles and some are confusing. I also read here on Spiceworks that some have been using MDT to push , but isn’t that a Machine by Machine type of thing? Or, how is it actually done on MDT? We use PDQ deploy to push out Windows 10 upgrades and it works quite well.
We mainly use it so we can push upgrades at our own pace. Just copy the files to the computer and create a step to install with the command below on “install” line. Granted, I’ve never personally used PDQ, but from what I’ve read and seen in video tutorials it is limited in that sense. I am currently in the process of using MDT to create reference images for each department with based on what specific programs they will need installed.
I can tell you right now the hardest hurdle so far has been the Windows 10 apps causing sysprep to fail due to them automatically updating after being connected to the internet.
I banged my head against the wall for a while trying to block the Appx automatic updates via registry changes and GPO. The best option was to let it do it’s thing, then just remove them all for all users right before you initiate the sysprep. I’m still in the testing phase and plan to to my first test deployment this afternoon assuming I can figure out the networking part. I am not looking to do a reimage, but I guess that is the only way to do it through MDT in order to upgrade to Speaking of Capturing, I was in your situation about a month ago until I used the same Get-AppXPackage script you mentioned above and removed everything However, when a domain user logs in for the first time, all the apps will reinstall.
Just an FYI. But right now, all I need to find out is how to “Push” the to my clients, it is very hard to grab each machine and re-image, I am pretty sure there is a solution out there to do this remotely.
I don’t mind if the AppxPackages update after deployment, I just wanted to be able to sysprep. Thanks, I have checked all those articles out and not really convinced since it works for some and doesn’t for others.
Also, unfortunately, we don’t have WSUS set up : We probably will set it up at some point but since PDQ sort of has everything we look for, it would’ve bee nice if they offered a OS upgrades with the Updates features. I still keep my WSUS server just for these types of updates. I know there have been some posts on the PDQ forums where some people have had luck pushing the feature updates with PDQ by adding sleep steps etc, but it really is not supported.
A feature update is essentially installing a whole new version of windows and that’s not PDQ is designed for. Guys, I was able to figure it out with the help of PDQ support forum, like Shane mentioned above except my command looks a bit different but same concept:. First, download Windows 10 x64 right from Microsoft Website using a media creation tool that they offer. Can you send me a screenshot of your PDQ package properties? I am trying to get this working.
That works like magic! Have you tested for computer disconnects? If this starts running then the the user shuts down the computer or it looses connectivity to the repository, will this fail safely?
Some machines took 4 hours, some took 1 hour. You want to make sure to change the deployment timeout to at least 4 hours That is what I have done. Go to Preferences and you’ll find that option. Can you send me a screen shot? I tried to put where I have my exe file but it fails every 7 seconds says that the path is not correct. Obviously it is correct since its in that folder I am pointing it too.
If I do a 2 step of file copy, then install. The copy fails with access denied for some strange reason. Using the same source and the same account. Thank you for posting this. I used it as a basis for pushing out the update for Win I am still in the testing phase, but so far it has worked on a few clients very well. I even got it to work for me on the free PDQ version by creating a batch file and running an xcopy and then the command that you had in the custom command line.
So far it has taken about 40 minutes for me, but these are for client machines with SSD drives and 3rd gen i5 CPUs that are new to us. To continue this discussion, please ask a new question.

WSUS should work that way in a domain environment. Hi Dan, Thanks, I have checked all those articles out and not really convinced since it works for some and doesn’t for others.

Shane Anaheim. It’s literally a command step and that is it. I will send you a screenshot. If not I can easily send a message prior to not shutdown. Thanks for this! How long does it take? Miguel M This person is a verified professional. Please help! This worked for me, thank you all. Helped save me lots of time. Just a simple file copy to copy the setup files to the PC, then install command, but had to do custom so it ran locally putting it in install file said it was not finding the file, it was trying to look on the server I was setting it up on, not the client.
