What I have to made Is a bootable USB that do not have acces to SCCM server. We want to give to site that have those machine a way to image those machine.  On the sccm server we have collection that give a few variable: Like Version, Language, Office .. Prior the task sequence deployment. When I made a task sequence media from that task sequence those variable how not there and it dont work. How can I add a script or modify those variable and then deployed using the usb key.

To made my key usb I made a task sequence media stand alone on a dvd unlimited size and save it on disk. The Iso size was 36 gb. Then I use a tool to send the Iso file on a bootable usb key.

If it possible to modify a file and give those variable and then deployed that what i need to do. Can anyone help me with that.

Thanks you for the help

The variables in a collection Variable tab can also be set in the task sequence by adding the  Select ADD then General then  "Set Task Sequence Variable"  in the upper Name is a descriptive name  in the lower section you put then name of the variable and the value and it cant be changed so you will need a task sequence and boot media  for each option you want ....

  • Thank You for the answer, that exactly What I have done, but i dont want to make 10 usb key per site because of a few option. Is there a way to change the variable in the task sequence that as been set in a dynamic variables when I create my bootable media on the usb keys. I check all the files one the keys as been made and no file can be edit so
    I can change and set other variable in the task sequence.. If there a way to do that it will be easy to maintain and choose what we need.
    • The files that are created all inside a wim file you would have to remount each wim file then find and edit the changes and update the wim file I don't know the locations that would have to be edited it would probably be easier to copy the task sequence and then edit each copy then make the usb one at a time

Hi, You need something to pop-up during the OSD build where by build technicians can set the language or whatever build info you want. In the past I have used HTA boxes, Set Dynamic Variable TS step, or vbscripts (Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment). However, I now use this.

It should be able to do what you need.

Once you set the variable then you can use it how you please. eg unattend.xml

        <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
            <InputLocale>%OSDInputLocale%</InputLocale> 
            <SystemLocale>%OSDSystemLocale%</SystemLocale> 
            <UILanguage>%OSDUILanguage%</UILanguage> 
            <UserLocale>%OSDUserLocale%</UserLocale> 
    </component> 
    </settings> 

Hope that helps
