Merged AD discovered object and Manual machine entry cannot boot
When there is Device object created by Group discovery method in SCCM and we create new Manual machine entry object. It can happen (when device was online during Group discovery process), that objects are merged. In that time Group discovery record's ID wins, so device cannot boot from PXE (Resource IDs are excluded - that make sense). To by pass that we have to delete all objects and recreate manual machine entry object again.
Can Microsoft change the logic, that Manual machine entry Resource ID wins, please?

Technical description: PC not booting due to wrong resource ID
Computers were discovered by AD Group discovery and recod was created with resource ID starting with "209". After that action Manual machine entry was created starting with resource ID "168".
After while those two records were merged together but resource ID starting with "209" wins - that's the issue.
TS was deployed on merged object to start staging.
PC was not able to boot from PXE, because IDs that are higher than "200" are excluded when WDS is trying to enumerate available TS for OSD. Returned message to PC is, that there is no OSD assigned to Object.
