MDT customsettings.ini Switches

I have spent a lot of time working with MDT and figuring out quite a bit of command switches in order to manipulate the deployment outcome. I listed them below. I will keep adding to this list, and if anyone has any that they do not see, please feel free to send it to me and I will make sure credit is given! Most of these are self-explanatory, but I have done my best to put them together in “categories” and given brief explanation to some.

Standard Switches:

  1. OSInstall=YES/NO
  2. SkipAdminPassword=YES/NO
  3. SkipApplications=YES/NO SkipAppsOnUpgrade=YES/NO
  4. SkipBDDWelcome=YES/NO
  5. SkipBitLocker=YES/NO
  6. SkipCapture=YES/NO
  7. SkipComputerName=YES/NO

  2. UserDataLocation=Auto Or UserDataLocation=NETWORK UDShare=\\ServerName\MigData$

Bitlocker Drive Encryption Switches:There is a little more to this than just adding the commands. As soon as I can, I will add those steps HERE!

  1. BDEDriveLetter=C:
  2. BDEDriveSize= 2000
  3. BDEInstall=TPM
  4. BDERecoveryKey=FALSE
  5. BDERecoveryPassword=FALSE

There will be more to come, and I will also be adding the custom switches for Hardware Type, Machine Make/Model and Architecture
