Download content during Task Sequence ahead of current Step
Currently during a regular OSD Task Sequence, content is downloaded for each step as the TS reaches each step. A single swim lane if you will. This means the machine is always doing 1 of 2 things, downloading or installing.
Could it instead be possible to have 2 swim lanes? Split out Download and Install. It makes sense for this to be the case outside of WinPe..
For instance, whilst I'm installing Office, that may take lets say 20 minutes to install, but in the meantime the TS could be starting the download of the content for the next steps. Just In Time downloads :)
This would obviously be dependant on disk speeds, but on the majority of SSD's and beyond this would be possible.
It would cut quite a chunk of time off a task sequence!
