HP Spectre Pro x360 G1 - SCCM 2012 OSD

Q: HP Spectre Pro x360 G1 - SCCM 2012 OSD

Hi, My company recently purchase seven of these units, which look very impressive but has left me in the situation of trying to modify our current SCCM 2012 Operating System Deployment TAsk Sequence to include this model.We also purchased seven ?3005pr USB 3.0" Port Replicators to facilitate connection to our network, whicxh do not allow PXE boot. I am aware of a PXE Bootable USB to Ethernet adapter (part no. XZ613AA) which would overcome this, but this then leads me to these two questions.1. Can someone point me in the direction of SCCM 2012 buil;d documentation for these units?2. If I were the have these units built using the Ethernet adapter, what problems will switching the units over to the Port Replicators cause and how can these issues be overcome? Given that each will have different MAC addresses.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am playing around with Server 2012. If I want to have a laptop configured for "at office use" with option to go on site, what would be the best way to do that in order to retain access to shared locations on server that is "at office"?

Should I create a standard windows account unrelated to my domain controller, and have them VPN regardless if they are in office or on site? Or is there a way to have a laptop configured for domain use, where it will still be functional (local computer use) on site outside of the office, even without internet connection (I know you can's VPN without it).


A:Best way to set up local and remote user with Server 2012

Well this is kind of interesting. You can in fact use a domain laptop away from the local network as long as you have logged into int once on the domain so it can cache your password for future log ins. Now comes to the more difficult part of your question's. Accessing files remotely while not online, you can set up what is called offline files. Offline files will give you acess to your files away from domain network. So if you choose to do offline files any changes made to the file while away from the domain controller where you shares are set up will have to be synced once back on the domain network. So if you make changes to lets say docA while off domain network, once you get back to domain network you will have to sync offline files to the server to update any changes you have made. This set up would not require offsite network but can bring problems when syncing once you reconnect on domain. But now lets say you have the same shares and now you have multiple individials with the same access to the shares. Say you make changes to docA and the other person makes changes to docA while offiste. Once you both reconnect and sync to server you could have issues with data such as duplicate information or doc merging. VPN would be the best option for sure....

Hello and welcome to Techspot!

We need to back up a bit first. Open up your case and have a look.

When the system is not turned on, there is an LED light on your board. Can you see it? What color is it? When you hit the power button, tell us EXACTLY what happens. Any fans spinning? Does the color of that light change? Any beeps from the system?

Did you connect the power connector to your graphics card?

How many watts is your PSU (and what make is it)?

Tell us some more about your ram. What size and speed are the ram? How many sticks?

I just got thrown into a mess of a situation and I am not too certain about this issue. Guy I know ordered new server build (clean install) and wants Windows Server 2012 R2. I just got sent an invoice from the company that is doing that and they have charged him for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Standard - license and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard - license, a $1500.00 total. As far as I know when clean installing R2 you do not need other version, so he should be charged for R2 only. Correct?


A:Licencing for Server 2012 R2 when doing clean install

Hello pioneerx01,

Its been almost a week since your post, hopefully you have resolved the issue.

That said, I have never encountered anything to that effect. Server 2012R2 is a standalone OS that does not require 2012. Are those links you posted the exact SKUs you were sold? Those are OEM SKUs which do have more limitations but again, R2 doesnt require 2012. Sounds like a billing mistake to me.

I have windows server 2012 installed on my vmware running ad, dhcp and dns.
after that I installed the client running windows 8.1.
but when I try to join the domain it says that the domain could not be found.
so I hit ipconfig in my cmd on the windows 8 and it didnt recieve any ip from my dhcp its ip address is169.254.153.23. so basicly my dhcp didnt give me any ip adress since my server is on network subnetmask
in the virtual machine setting I have both network adpters set on bridged: connected directly to the physical network.
when I open the dhcp on my server I have a red arrow pointing down on the ipv4 and ipv6 option but since I cannot ping my server at all I dont think its my dhcp but my vmware network.
does somebody know how to fix this?

sorry for my bad english

About to do a complete wipe of my hard drive and reinstall Windows 7. My concern is being certain that I have Windows Live Mail 2012 backed up. I have five different accounts running through WLM and it is critical I don't lose any emails sent or received.
I took a look at the tutorials and played around but I must be doing something wrong. For example, when I trying exporting and then importing some test messages I wasn't able to find them. The storage folders, where I think the test emails should have been imported, were empty. Tried a few times and always the same result.
Now I'm thinking it might be easier if I just back up all the folders in the Windows Live Mail folder on the C drive. Is this a viable and fool proof way of saving all emails and then being able to restore them?

A:Windows Live Mail 2012 Backup Questions

If the accounts are IMAP, the mail will be retained on the remote server no matter what you do with your local client (except for deleting mail from within the client, which will delete it remotely as well). POP is another story, because once downloaded it usually, though not always, is gone from the remote.

I don't see why you couldn't back up the entire WLM folder, which is probably in c:\users\<user name>\appdata\local....

In fact, when I do a reinstall, I always do a file back up of most of the appdata folder. It invariably comes in very handy.

Another way for an independent mail backup, POP or IMAP, is to use MailStore, which is free for private use.

Unless I'm missing something, this is a touch screen which you use your finger to navigate rather than a mouse.  If you are more comfortable using a mouse you can use a usb type with the laptop.  I personally don't know anyone who uses a stylus on a laptop touch screen.
Just out of curiosity, where did you read that you needed to use a "pressure pen"?

First time posting, thanks in advance for the help.

So I've recently come in contact with the Vista Security 2012 rogue, and have taken steps to remove it. I've done the task manager closing, deleted the exe and tried cleaning registry keys (bouncing between a hundred different sites at the time) and I ended up ruining my .exe associations. Well, crap. I used xp_exe_fix.reg to restore .exe functionality, but when I went to use System Restore, nothing happens. I'm just staring at the desktop. I can see rstrui.exe running in Task Manager, but nothing is happening. Where do I go from here?

A:Vista Security 2012 Aftermath / System Restore error

Other .exes are working fine, but I'm positive that the virus messed with rstrui.exe somehow.

I installed the Updates for Oct 2012 and now Outlook cannot connect to the exchange server. The server is available because I can connect to it via OWA.
This is ONLY with an Exchange server I have an account that connects to a different mail server and it can connect fine.
Task 'Exchange Server' reported error (0x8004011D) : 'The server is not available. Contact your administrator if this condition persists.'

After installing Hide Folders 2012, i tried hiding some of my folders and it worked. I restarted my computer and turned on HF and all my folders were disappeared. I used Easeus Data Revovery to check if they're still visible and yes they are. I tried many ways to unhide my folders but didn't work at all. So is there anyway to show my hidden folders?

Like so many others, I've been infected by the Eraem Vire Studaa 2012, which I suspect is also related to the updateflashplayer_***.exe
I have the same symptoms as described in othe posts on this forum: ...
PC is laging and I get the Eraem Vire Studaa 2012 process runing, when I terminate the process it keep poping back up.
I have tried varius malware removal tools like malwarebytes antimalware, but it won't erase this bug. My Mcaffie seams to be completly helpless agains it as well.
Rather than go things ahead and run any desinfection programs I patiently await your respons to this post and humbly ask you to save me from this malware
 PS:  I'm runing win7 HomePremium SP1 (64bit) on a Samsung Laptop with an Intel i3-2310M cpu and 8GB RAM

In the virtual machine settings, Network adapter is set to use this external switch.

I want the 2008 server vm to be able to connect to the internet to apply windows updates.
It is unclear to me what I need to do make this happen.

Hi there, spreading this a little wider to see whether anyone else has experienced the same issue and whether anyone has found a workaround. Disabled strong security on the cert works around the issue as the prompt will not occur without strong security

When I am running my deployment for Win7, the last couple systems have returned a memory error when going though the pre-application round of Windows Update. The error pauses the deployment and the system needs to be manually restated before it will continue.
When this error occurred before, I added a task to install SP1 before Windows Update ran. This no longer seems to be working sufficiently. Any ideas on how to solve this problem? My thought was to modify the ZTIWindowsUpdate file to only install a limited
number of updates in a given pass, but I have no idea how to do this.

I reset my computer because Windows Live Mail was not connecting to the internet and was getting an error message saying that I have used the wrong password. Now, I still can't use WL Mail and Windows Essentials is still "installing" for the last several days. Consequently, I can't uninstall WL Mail or Windows Essentials or fix them. In addition, I think, because WLE is not installed officially, I can't see my saved videos and still get the same error message when I try to connect to WL Mail...error 0x80280006. I tried to reset my WL Mail password to no avail.
BTW, I'm using Windows 10 and maybe it is partly to blame?
I want to be able to use WL Mail and see my videos, but I don't know how. Please help. Thanks.

I recently started at a company where i assist in small IT related tasks.

Recently we have started to experience some trouble with our server, we will all still be working perfectly fine (via Remote Desktop) then all of a sudden we lose our connection to the server and when i go to see what the problem is, I see the blue screen
of death on the screen with the following message:
"Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you.
If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for this error: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (TSFairShare.sys)"
 If anyone can please assist me in what this means and how to resolve it i would appreciate it seeing as i don't have
a clue in connection to servers.

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

If the client has sent the http traffic to the proxy server, please check if there is any warning or error in the proxy server.

We have found recently that our Windows 8.1 clients are unable to connect to Server 2012 R2 shares (SMB 3.02). When trying to browse to them in Explorer we get "Windows can't find <UNC path>". Windows 7 clients can still connect to these
shares, only our 8.1 clients are affected. Attempting to access using the IP address instead of the host name makes no difference.
The 8.1 clients can still connect to shares on 2008 R2 servers. Server 2012 R2 to Server 2012 R2 also works.
No changes have been made to the clients or to the group policies which control them that could readily explain this issue.
Any advice on where to start troubleshooting this would be appreciated.

When System Center Configuration Manager is used to manage/push updates out to clients, the SCCM agent takes over control of the Windows Updates process so that when you manually initiate Windows Updates, the machine will check against the SCCM server,
rather than the online Microsoft update servers. When you have the option for Internet Explorer 11 to Install new versions automatically selected, will IE check for updates on the SCCM server, or will it check against the online Microsoft update servers?

As I known, Internet Explorer 11 is preinstalled with Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2. No additional action is required.
If you plan to run IE 11 on Windows server 2012, it won?t be supported. Internet Explorer 11 is not available for download for on Windows Server 2012.

We're deploying Windows 8.1 to our public computing labs right now. This is the first time we're doing mass deployments with SCCM and we've run into the dreaded sysprep error just after applying the image. I think we've
narrowed this down to drivers but can't seem to figure it out. As an example, *almost none* of our hundreds of Optiplex 9010s will accept the image, yet hundreds of other models (Optiplex 7010, Optiplex 9020) accept the same image without issue.

I saw plenty of other posts about this error but I don't think this could be an unattend file or sysprep issue. Why would it work on some machines but not others?

Has anyone experienced a similar issue?

Thanks in advance!!

Sysprep could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass [specialize]. The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup].

Log Files:
Will post separately.

A:SCCM Windows 8.1 Deployment - Sysprep could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass specialize

For those with a similar issue - 

This turned out to be a driver problem for us, as suspected. In speaking with Premier Support, we dug through the CBS.log on a failed machine and confirmed it. In CBS, we traced the setup process to where drivers get installed and found a couple failures
(network, audio, etc.). Setup failed immediately after that process.

We were under the impression that our device drivers were current in SCCM, however they were not. In SCCM, we were ignoring driver import errors while using the Dell Command Deploy Utility for CABs. The errors were a result of the 2008 site server's inability
to recognize the newer Windows 8.1 drivers. We applied KB 2837108 and KB 2921916 to the site server and re-imported drivers. The sysprep error went away after this.

I've also attached the log files for both instances. None of the fixes I've found via Google have worked and I don't believe it's a hardware issue. I tried scaling up the RAM/Memory allotment for the VM, no change.

Have attempted to get Photo Gallery and Movie Maker on my Win 7 Pro computer. Installed Windows Essentials 2012 which is supposed to include these two programs. The only program that installs and shows up on the computer is Microsoft One Drive. Did a search of the computer but did not find either program. A number of websites discuss this problem and offer solutions. I've tried all of the solutions. None have worked for me. My computer specs are more than what is required for these two programs, so that isn't the problem. I'm beginning to wonder if these programs have been eliminated by Microsoft.

Any ideas would be welcomed.
