  • Press Next to begin the Task Sequence Wizard:

  • Next you will be presented with either a list of task sequences to choose from or a single task sequence. Highlight the most recent EBD 2016 Current Release option, and click Next.

  • You may be presented with the Edit Task Sequence Variables screen. If this screen is displayed, double-click OSDComputerName:

    • There must be a corresponding computer object in Active Directory or it will not join the domain.
    • If the task sequence begins without displaying this screen our system already has an association between this MAC address and a computer name. The previous computer name is used automatically.

  • The task sequence will begin. Windows 10 and supporting applications will be installed in approximately two hours (depending on hardware and network speed).
