DCR: Boot Images. Provide an option to prevent re-downloading boot images (Boot / Prestage Media)
Scenario: You create a Boot Media or Prestaged Media. Current behaviour is that as long as the boot image version from creation date matches the version inside the infrastructure everything is fine. System is starting Windows PE and executes the Task Sequence. If you add for example a new driver now to the boot image the new version causes Configuration Manager to download the boot image inside Windows PE and another restart into the updated version of the boot image. In case of a Prestaged Media scenario this painful, as UEFI systems might no longer work.
Possible SOLUTION: Add a variable SMSTSPreventRedownloadBootImage and SMSTSBootImageMinumVersion to stich with the boot image currently used.
Purpose of SMSTSBootImageMinumVersion (enforce only if present and boot image ID matches Boot Image ID used in Task Sequence) would be to have still version control.
I think this would enable additional deployment options

SMSTSBootImageMinumVersion should of course be SMSTSBootImageMinimumVersion :-)
