OSD – Workaround for ADK issue in 1703

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on May 16, 2017

The issue in ADK 1703 is that you cannot mount a WIM file in MDT/ConfigMgr, due to a signing issue with the WIM Mount Driver when running a system with UEFI and Secure Boot.


Michael Niehaus did found a workaround today, and that is to use the existing WIM mount driver that is already in the system.

OSD – App-V tools are missing in ADK 1703 when being installed on Windows Server 2016 (sometimes)

OS Deployment – Installing ADK 1703 on Windows Server 2016 could fail

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on April 6, 2017

Update:It does not happens on all WS2016 machines, it happens only on computer where Secure Boot is enabled. This also means that this will happen on every machine that is using Secure Boot, regardless of OS version. It is a confirmed bug.

Yesterday Microsoft released Windows 10 1703 and also ADK 1703. But it fails to install correctly, the ADK actually installs, but it is the WIM mount driver that fails, du to this absurd message.

Install ADK 1703 on windows server 2016 - 2

A digitally signed driver is required

The message indicates that the driver Windows Overlay Filter is not signed.

The Solution:

According to this , the solution is to disable Secure Boot, really???
