Make client removal by "Prepare ConfigMgr Client for Capture" work for capture-only scenarios
It could be required to split a "Build & Capture" process into two separate task sequences, one that builds the computer, the other prepares and captures it. Reasons for that could be issues with (too many) software updates and manual steps that need to be done to complete the imaging process. In this scenario (as written in the product's documentation) the removal of the ConfigMgr agent does not work. The task sequence step "Prepare ConfigMgr Client for Capture" should always allow for client removal regardless of the chosen scenario.
We do have exact that problem. The older the OS the greater the problem.
