Add keyboard layout settings in the Apply Windows Settings step
I would like you to add the keyboard layout setting in the Apply Windows Settings step.
Please add it as shown in the screenshot below.
Currently, keyboard layout settings are manually added to the registry within the Task Sequence.
cmd.exe /c reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "LayerDriver JPN" /t REGSZ /d kbd106.dll & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardIdentifier" /t REGSZ /d PCAT106KEY & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardSubtype" /t REGDWORD /d 2 & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardType" /t REG_DWORD /d 7
Thanks for all your feedback and suggestions. Updating status to completed – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each status.
This is the opt-in phase of our 1910 release (fast ring) and it is now live. Customers can opt-in and then download 1910 through their Admin Console now. In a couple weeks, we’ll open it up to everybody (slow ring), to enable downloading without the need to opt-in.
Agreed, the hardware keyboard is the biggest hurdle for changing the keyboard layout to Japanese. The current feature does not appear to address this.

Thank you for implementing the feature on Configuration Manager Technical Preview 1908.2.
I have evaluated this feature, and I have the following request.
However, the hardware keyboard layout has not changed.(101/102 key)
"Please change the hardware keyboard layout (106/109 key) when it change the keyboard layout."
Thank you for your support!
