Retrieve device info from CMD for autopilot

Bronze Contributor
Hi all, I want to start using AutoPilot on some devices, but I am getting issues with sending device info into "Windows Autopilot Devices" in intune. When I am on the OOBE of a device I press Shift + F10 to get CMD, then
  1. Powershell
  2. Set-Executionpolicy bypass
  3. Install-Script Get-WindowsAutoPilotInfo
I then Select Y which works for the first but then on the second I get an error: 


Any ideas why this is failing?

I've never had this issue personally, however i have always plugged in a USB with the Script on so i can easily extract the CSV file and import it on demand.
Hi, How do I do this?

You could try this command line to get a better error output

Install-Script -Name Get-WindowsAutopilotInfo -Force -Verbose -Debug

Another possibility would be to indeed download the get-windowsautopilot.ps1 file and place it on a USB stick... We are also doing the same and built in some additional checks
Hi Rudy

Where would I find the get-windowsautopilot.ps1 and how would I run it from cmd after running powershell?

You could search the powershell galery

Download it and save it something like autopilot.ps1 you can run it like this (if the cmd is in the same folder as the autopilot file)

powershell.exe -executionpolicy bypass .\autopilot.ps1
I have used powershell.exe -executionpolicy bypass D:\Get-WindowsAutopiletinfo.ps1

this works however the details needed for intune go into the cmd window ideally it would be great if this could go straight into intune. I have seen this done by adding -online but I cant seem to get it to work or if this isnt possible how to I add it to a csv on to the memory stick
Normally it would be

Get-WindowsAutoPilotInfo.ps1 -online -addtogroup “AutoPilotstaticgroup” -assign

You can also download the autopilot module from this blog as I am not sure if the one you downloaded it totally up to date

Hi @Rudy_Ooms_MVP 


I keep getting this, I know I have changed it so just using the online switch but stlll no luck even with the ps1 from the link provided.

ANy ideas? 


Did you saved the get-windowsautopilot file in the system32 folder?

Hi @Rudy_Ooms_MVP 


No its not do I need to move it there? How do I get to the System32 folder via cmd window? 


I had the get-windowsautopilot file  on a memory stick
