SpeakerWindows Autopilot – The modern way to deploy Windows 10

  • Starting with Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703), you can register your organization’s devices with the Windows AutoPilot Deployment service to your Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) tenant and customize the Out Of box Experience (OOBE) for your end users using a cloud configuration. This enables users to walk through the self-service deployment of their new Windows 10 devices without needing IT assistance.

    Here’s how it works:

    • Hand out a brand-new Windows 10 PC to the user.
    • The user unboxes and powers on the new Windows 10 device. With a few clicks (select language, choose keyboard layout, connect to a network), the device is recognized as your organization’s device and delivers the customized OOBE you configured. (Additional steps in the standard Windows 10 OOBE such as choosing between a personal device or a work device, selecting privacy settings, OEM registration, Cortana setup, and OneDrive setup can be skipped using Windows AutoPilot Deployment.)
    • Once connected to the network, Windows prompts the user to sign with their Azure AD e-mail address and password. (The sign-in experience is branded with your organization’s name and logo before your employee enters their Azure AD sign-in information.)
    • Upon successful authentication, the device joins Azure AD and is automatically enrolled in Microsoft Intune or other mobile device management (MDM) solution.”
