Make a copy / backup of default UDIWizard_Config.xml file before start editing xml file. Then we will add a custom page to the UDI Wizard with few labels and assign task sequence variables to those labels. Go to Start -> All programs -> Microsoft Deployment ToolKit. Launch UDI Wizard Designer as administrator.
Note: If you change the parameters for an existing Orchestrator runbook, you need to browse (reselect) for the runbook again, because MDT only retrieves the parameter list when initially adding the Orchestrator runbook. - Value.

Do note, unlike default behavior where some variables are set in stone upon first write, the custom code will force the value regardless. For variables in the form of lists (such as Applications1, Applications2, etc) that are being overridden, the entire array is wiped out, and set again — this is by design.

Step 1. Import the drivers into SCCM. Note: This blogpost assumes you want to deploy Windows with custom blocksizes on ESXi 6.5 Update 2, if you are using different hardware, use the suppliers drivers as appropriate. create a driver package in SCCM and distribute it to your distribution points.
If you don't use the MDT monitoring part, you can also find these kind of functionallities using the below MDT variables. 1. 2. 3. _SMSTSCurrentActionName ==> current step name, as Installing Operating System. _SMSTSNextInstructionPointer ==> current step number. _SMSTSInstructionTableSize ==> total step number.
Notice that I've copied my custom, ZTI script into a directory called "Custom" that hangs off the Script directory amongst my MDT files. Whenever I use my new MACHINETYPE variable in a Task Sequence, I'll need to ensure that my "gather" script has been called first. The file system of my Deployment share looks like the Image below:
Once these variables are captured, I can reuse them in scripts and processes along the build process to truly create a lite-touch deployment process for Hyper-V hosts. As the title implies, this post series will show you how to Rapid Provision Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter Hyper-V hosts using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT).
