The Windows Management User Group (WMUG) is proud to announce a virtual interview Niall Brady of Windows-noob.com, presented by and Robert Marshall.
Robert and Niall where at the ConfigMgr MVP Summit 2013 in February, and at the end of a busy day on the Microsoft Campus we decided to head back to the Hotel and go over Niall's CM12 BitLocker front-end HTA while having some food and liquid refreshments, when it dawned on Robert that we could record the demo and put it on the web for you all to see.
So, using a Camera Phone and shaky-cam technology we set about recording the 30 or so minutes it took to refresh a Windows 8 BitLocker laptop to Windows 8 BitLocker. Worked out really well, and shows off the HTA in action.
Anyone doing OSD will want to take a look at this HTA, one of the features is the ability to get to state data on a PC that is in a BSOD cycle, and from which you obviously cannot run a task sequence to perform state capture in readiness for a rebuild, and thus you would need to fall back to doing this via WINPE, Niall discusses this point during the video.
We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed making this video for you.
