As you kick the tires on Windows Autopilot scenarios (whether new scenarios like white glove or existing ones), make sure you’ve installed a recent cumulative update and aren’t using just the original unpatched Windows 10 1903 media. These updates do fix known issues, and will reduce your overall frustration when trying things out.
Today’s update, KB4505903, which can be downloaded from the Windows Update catalog, includes two new Windows Autopilot fixes, on top of three other related fixes that were included in previous updates. The list of issues we’ve addressed:
- Windows Autopilot white glove does not work for non-English OSes. (If you’ve seen a red screen from Windows Autopilot that says “Success” and you were using a non-English OS, you now know why.)
- Windows Autopilot reports an AUTOPILOTUPDATE error during OOBE after sysprep, reset or other variations. (This typically would happen if you reset the OS or used a custom sysprepped image.)
- BitLocker encryption is not correctly configured via Windows Autopilot scenarios. (BitLocker didn’t get an expected notification after policies were applied to begin encryption.)
- Unable to install UWP apps from the Microsoft Store (online apps), causing failures during Windows Autopilot. (If you are deploying Company Portal as a blocking app during Windows Autopilot ESP, you’ve probably seen this one.)
- User is not granted administrator rights after Windows Autopilot user-driven Hybrid Azure AD join scenario. (Another non-English issue.)
So, download the update, inject it into the image that you are using, and use that for your evaluation.
