Add bmp to UDI Custom Pages

Creating custom UDI pages for a ConfigMgr 2012 R2 Task Sequences is something I do way to infrequent to remember all the details.
One item has that seems less documented is adding pictures, so I thought I would add a quick blog.

In the UDI wizard on the build your own page add a bitmap. Set the property Source to images/filename.bmp

udi

Then copy your selected bmp files to mdt_tookit_package\Tools\x64\Images and mdt_tookit_package\Tools\x86\Images.

Save your changes in the UDI wizard designer and update the MDT tools package in SCCM Console 🙂

Running a CMD prompt as SYSTEM

Common troubleshooting steps to replicate how ConfigMgr operates prior to testing out deployments is to determine how an applications reacts when running as System.

A useful chink in the armoury here is to use PSTools from the SysInternals Suite.

Launch PSExec from a command prompt and run the following:

psexec -i -s cmd.exe

Hey presto a new window operating as SYSTEM 🙂
