WICD

Getting Started with Windows 10 Provisioning Packages

Posted on Updated on

This is a quick guide to help you get started with using a Windows 10 Provisioning Package to configure Windows 10 during deployment.  This example specifically focuses on (and was tested) for a bare-metal deployment using ConfigMgr 1511 and Windows 10 1511.

[Update 2/23/17] – the WICD tool is now also available as a universal app from the Windows Store at https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nblggh4tx22.

  1. Start WICD with ICD.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Imaging and Configuration Designer\x86\
  2. Create the desired customizations, such as:
    • Disabling automatic updates for the Windows Store
      AllowAppStoreAutoUpdate
    • Homepage for the Edge browser
      HomePages
    • Allow Cortana

    • Disallowing Windows tips
      AllowWindowsTips
    • Set a custom Start menu layout
      Note: to easily create the LayoutModification.xml file, simply adjust the start menu as you would like, then run PowerShell command “Export-StartLayout -Path C:\Temp\LayoutModification.xml”
