Windows Autopilot enables organizations to easily provision new devices, taking them from the initial OEM factory configuration to a ready-for-productive-use state.  But depending on the amount of software and policies that need to be configured on the device, this provisioning process can take some time.

 

wg-today.png

 

For many organizations, users aren't used to waiting that long for the device to be provisioned; the time-consuming steps are done before the user ever sees the device because IT technicians or partners perform those steps before the device is delivered.  With the release of Windows 10 version 1903, we can support that same type of process with Windows Autopilot, leveraging the white glove pre-provisioning capabilities.

 

wg-new.png

 

To read more about the Windows Autopilot white glove capabilities, see the main documentation page for the feature.  At a high level, here are the steps involved:

 

  • Modify your existing Windows Autopilot profiles to opt into white glove pre-provisioning by enabling the "Allow White Glove OOBE" option.
    whiteglove.png
  • After the device has been registerd with Windows Autopilot and the profile has been assigned, boot the device to start the out-of-box experience (OOBE).  On the first language/locale screen, press the Windows key five times.
  • Choose Windows Autopilot pre-provisioning from the available choices.
  • Use the presented QR code to reconfigure the device in Intune (see the sample Windows Autopilot Companion app), if necessary.
  • Click the Provision button to start the pre-provisioning process.  This will join the device to Azure Active Directory or Active Directory and enroll it in Intune, then apply all the device-targeted policies, as well as any user-targeted Win32 apps (as long as they are configured to install in the device context).
  • When the device finishes the pre-provisioning process, click "Reseal" to prepare the device for the user.
  • Deliver the device to the user so they can complete the process by going through the standard Windows Autopilot user-driven process.

Here's a video that shows the process (edited for time), showing both the technician-driven pre-provisioning process, as well as the user-driven process that happens very quickly.

 

 

Behind the scenes, the Windows Autopilot white glove pre-provisioning process leverages the same process used by self-deploying mode (so it has the same TPM attestation requirements), and it requires using a wired Ethernet connection (to avoid having to configure the language, locale, and keyboard as part of the pre-provisioning process, needed before a Wi-Fi connection could be made).

 

Try it out yourself, and if you have any issues you can ask for help via the "Help and Support" node in the Intune portal.

the wired connection is certainly not required. what I've been doing, is pressing shift+f10 to launch a command prompt, then win+u to get to settings, there I click the Network section and click Show available networks, which gives me wireless menu in bottom left. from that point on, i can preprovision the device as if it were using ethernet.

I know what you are trying to fix, but isn't it kind of going against the main Autopilot idea? :) So, you can't just deliver PC from manufacturer/reseller to user's door steps. You need to take it to IT (or talk to OEM to unpack it, do stuff, pack it back) and prepare. Why not prepare it the old school way then (image, clone, MDT, etc.)?

You are assuming that the white glove process is done by the customer - it could just as easily be done by the OEM, distributor, reseller, or other partner before the device is shipped.

 

This isn't a solution for everyone, it's just for those customers who don't believe their users are willing to sit and watch while their device is being provisioned with all the needed software and settings.

we're using autopilot internally, to preprovision devices by IT personell.

besides of that, ethernet connection makes windows remember the DNS suffix of the last connected network, causing issues with another of our services using network discovery (dns-sd printers), therefore ethernet can't be used.

however, you're right - the point about manufacturer doing the preprovisioning is very valid.

Hi, exist a list of vendors who support White Glove out of the box? So can HP for example deliver white glove enrolled clients?

I'm having a hard time getting this to work on any PC I try it with, existing or old. I install Windows 1903 .iso from scratch, then run a script in the first stage of the OOBE and collect the hardware ID. After which I upload it to Intune > Enroll Devices > Windows Devices > Devices. 

 

Then I'm stuck. Either I get a red screen directly after it finishes enrolling, or it gives me the green ok screen but where I still have to sign in and download all the applications. Tried with ASUS, Lenovo computers with TPM 2.0. I'm using autopilot profile (user driven). 


At this point I'm considering going back to imaging, because so far the experience has been anything but smooth.

Either I get a red screen directly after it finishes enrolling, or it gives me the green ok screen after one minute but where I still have to sign in and download all the applications (It has to download Office for instance,which obviously doesn't take a minute). Tried with ASUS, Lenovo computers with TPM 2.0. I'm using autopilot profile (user driven).

We've been successfully employing White Glove for our Surface deployments for a couple weeks now.  We actually use MDT to wipe and perform a fresh install of Windows 10 Enterprise.  The MDT Task Sequence also registers the device in Intune AutoPilot and kicks off sysprep /oobe.

 

I'm always in the pursuit of zero touch, so has anyone figured out a way to automate the pressing of the Windows key 5 times, and perhaps the subsequent Windows Autopilot Configuration screen?
