We don’t do anything explicit to block GPO processing, in earlier Windows versions that wasn’t the case but GPO apply was problematic in some instances
Our next step for this item is clear explanation of how GPO relates to OS Deployment Task Sequences and standalone Task Sequences.

Many customers asking me the same question: Is it possible to apply Group Policy during or at end of OS deployment? My answer is as always: No, this isn't possible, because Microsoft doesn't allow it. It may or will break you task sequence deployment. Therefore some steps needs to be applied to get the job done.
Trick is you need to logon first, apply group policy, and logoff or shutdown again. It is possible, but needs a lot of custom configuration to make it happen. Hope that Microsoft can apply some changes, where Group Policy can be applied during OS deployment, without the risk that OS deployment is breaking.
At customers I visit, this is one of most frustrating items missing. Will hope for a future release for sure.Henk Hoogendoorn supported this idea ·
