Windows 10 Upgrade Using SCCM Task Sequence

Windows 10 Upgrade Using SCCM Task Sequence. In the previous post, I explained about Creating Windows 10 1709 Upgrade Task Sequence in SCCM CB.

I didn’t provide the details about distributing the Windows 10 1709 content to DPs, Deployment of Task Sequence, and end-user experience of this type of upgrade.

In this post, we will have a video experience of the windows 10 1709 upgrade using the SCCM Task Sequence.

SCCM CB Server Side Preparation for Windows 10 1709 Upgrade

Distribute Required Contents to DPs

SCCM admin should make sure all the Windows 10 1709 upgrade package is distributed to all the required DPs. Also, we need to make sure all the contents referenced in the task sequence should be replicated to DPs.

We can start the content distribution from Windows 10 1709 upgrade task sequence. Right-click on the Task Sequence and click on Distribute Content. This action will initiate the content distribution of all the pending packages.

Ensure that all the referenced packages in the task sequence are successfully replicated to your DPs. Otherwise, the Windows 10 1709 upgrade will fail.

Deploy the Task Sequence to Windows 10 1703 Machines

Once the content of all the required applications, packages, and OS upgrade packages have been replicated to DPs, then we can create a deployment. The Task Sequence should be deployed to all the required Windows 10 machines in your environment.

But, don’t deploy the Windows 10 upgrade task sequence to all the Windows 10 1703 machines. The upgrade should be a phase-wise approach. Initially, we should deploy this upgrade task sequence to a couple of Windows 10 machines.

Once those two deployments are successful, we can deploy the task sequence to the next set of test devices.

In my opinion, we should start the Windows 10 upgrade deployment as “Available”.  The optional task sequence empowers users to upgrade their machines to 1709 whenever they want to perform the upgrade.

Right-click on the Task Sequence and click on the “Deploy” option.

Windows 10 1709 upgrade task sequence will be available in Software Center. We have created Windows 10 1709 upgrade task sequence as an optional deployment.

The user will have to open the Software Center and start the upgrade process. This can be done by clicking on the “Install” button, as you can see in the video.
