About the script

 

This script is totally automated and builds a complete MDT 2013 deployment solution for deploying the Surface Pro 3 with all drivers included from Microsoft right up to March 2015, all you have to provide is Windows 8.1 x64 Update source files and optionally Office 365.

Download it !

 

Note: If you haven’t restarted your server in a while, then i’d recommend restarting it before running the script otherwise the installation of .NET may require a restart and that can have a knock-on effect on the installation of Windows Deployment Services.

 

Here’s the new updated script.

 

Attached File  Setup MDT 2013 for Microsoft Surface Pro 3 – March 2015.zip   6.33KB   23 downloads

 

Download it, unzip and run the script as Administrator in Windows PowerShell ISE, for the best experience try this on a new server with only the Operating System copied to the source specified in the variables.

 

I’ve added some minor tweaks in the script so that you can run it on a previously setup Surface Pro 3 MDT Lab (for example if you created it with say the January version of this script). If any step fails it will simply fail over to the next step, in other words, not pretty but it works.

 

Once the script has run you should see this

start up Deployment Workbench and review the new drivers…below i’ve highlighted the new UEFI firmware driver

all that’s left to do is UEFI network boot a Surface Pro 3 and see the script in action, awesome !

cheers
