Universal WinPE

OSDCloud Template contains a Universal WinPE that can be used with Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and Configuration Manager

If you were to boot the OSDCloud Template, you will see it looks virtually identical to the ADK WinPE

Universal WinPE Configuration

  • wgl4_boot.ttf is applied to Media to fix bad display resolution in WinPE UEFI

    • System Variables are added for APPDATA and LOCALAPPDATA

    • PackageManagement

    • PowerShellGet

  • Microsoft DaRT is added to WinPE from C:\Program Files\Microsoft DaRT\v10\Toolsx64.cab

    • WinPE winpeshl.ini is removed

    • Microsoft DaRT Config is added from C:\Program Files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit\Templates\DartConfig8.dat
