    Bob,

    Love the sound of this, were in the process of trying to roll out Windows 10 1809 upgrade to our estate using a TS, for the moment, iv had to set the TS reboot delay to 20 mins, which as we already discussed, adds 40 mins to a plain upgrade under the current version of SCCM.

    any chances that this new variable could be released as a hotfix for SCCM 1902 (pretty please ;)

    I agree with Bob Mac Neill's comment about the SMSTSRebootDelay variable, but the problem with this is that the overwrite value set here is global for the whole task sequence, so the user gets a nice prompt while in windows saying the machine will be rebooted in x mins, but after the machine reboots, there is a second prompt which appears at the end of the offline part of the OS Upgrade, this also takes the SMSTSRebootDelay setting.

    This means if i set it to something nice like 3600 seconds, and the user isnt around to press Restart, it will sit there counting down for 60 mins for no reason...

    This idea seems a really simple thing to implement, especially now most of the OS upgrade is done online and invisible to the user, just adding a "defer reboot" would make Task Sequence upgrading an OS much more viable !
