OSD Task Sequence option to ignore "unexpected reboots"
If you are doing BIOS updates as part of a Task Sequence you are sometimes faced with "unexpected reboots" because the BIOS update program restarts the computer if you want or not (e.g. Lenovo ThinkStation BIOS updates).
Those reboots will cause the Task Sequence to fail.
It would be very helpful for those scenarios to be able to prepare a task for such reboot events and to ignore the errors in order to continue the Task Sequence after the reboot.
Maybe a modified "Restart Computer" task which prepares a Task Sequence reboot but doesn't execute it could be an approach.

Windows 10 upgrade fails incase user restarts the machine in middle of upgrade process.

THIS. Like if you've got a step that MIGHT or MIGHT NOT reboot, it'd be great if you could put in a step that says "Prepare for a reboot, but don't bother doing it."

Additional reboots also occur for the installation of some Windows Roles and Features (e.g. Hyper-V) along with some DISM commands (e.g. changing Windows Edition from Standard to Datacenter). This forces me to have to conduct these tasks post-OSD. Handling additional reboots has been addressed for Software Updates, but not for anything else.

That would be nice, now we do that before the TS starts
