If you are still seeing issues with this nested task sequences, please send a frown through the console or contact support to get further assistance.
We have the need to run a command line in the task sequence and leverage a secret value TS variable ADMACCTPW set with the local admin account password. Example Run Command Line "net user admin %ADMACCTPW%
The issue is in the SMSTS.log the variables are all expanded like the ProgramName = 'net user admin mynewadminpassword' InstallSoftware 7/1/2016 12:58:58 PM 4468 (0x1174)

Speed up OSD by having ConfigMgr set High Performance power settings in WinPE and Running OS during TS
When you run a task sequence, both WinPE and the target OS by default run with a Balanced power plan. Changing this in both WinPE and the target OS can significantly speed up the task sequence. For example, when applying a large WIM file, we've seen laptops go from taking 15 minutes to apply to less than 8 minutes by adding some Run Command Line steps to change the power to High Performance.184 votescompleted - closed · Admindjam (Product Director, or Executive, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
This is shipped as part of #MemCM / #ConfigMgr 1910
I know Windows 10 is bringing much better support of HiDPI, but I don't believe the console is taking advantage of those enhancements.
Most of the console renders OK on HiPDI screens, but there are many windows that are simply unusable due to improper support of scaling. The examples I've attached are from a 4K monitor at 150% (which is the default for Windows). This issue also occurs on HiPDI screens on laptops like the Dell XPS 13.190 votes
With many laptops and tablet devices not having wired Ethernet adapters built in, it is necessary to use USB Ethernet adapters to use OSD with these systems. However, Configuration Manager currently associates the MAC address of the adapter with the first computer it was used on, which causes issues re-using the adapter. Please add an option for the MAC of the USB Ethernet adapter to be automatically removed from Configuration Manager at the end of the OSD sequence. Only the built in wireless adapter should be associate with the device after OSD.80 votescompleted - closed · AdminAdam Meltzer (ConfigMgr Product Team) (Software Engineer, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager) responded
