How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Add a custom section to osdinjection.xml

Add a custom section to the osdinjection.xml fie (just like we have for configuration.mof), that makes it easier to add custom settings after the upgrades. As it is now, 1602 upgrade will override the existing file. Future upgrades might do the same. A custom section will make it so much easier for us to add our stuff back thus not loosing valueable changes.

Setting to Completed

In 1606 release there’s changes made to Boot Image Customization. \sms\pkg\sms00001 is now added to path – that package path is what’s added in the Package used for the Prestart command (see Boot Image Customization tab)

Any tools etc. in that path can be accessed in WinPE. Any updates can be done via updating the Package, then refreshing content.

    In 1606 there's changes made to Boot Image Customization. \sms\pkg\sms00001 is now added to %path% - that package path is what's added in the Package used for the Prestart command (see Boot Image Customization tab)

    RE: Custom section in osdinjectin.xml - today our notion for upgrade is to not touch the customized boot images and keep the default ones as default (base + SCCM binaries).
    If we persist these customizations in osdinjection.xml, the default boot images will no longer be default, as they get stuffed with the content specified in the osdinjection.xml.

    If this meets your needs I'll update the status
