MDT – Pausing a Task Sequence

Ever wanted to test your task sequence and stop it to check if something is right or wrong.
Need to pause a task, change something and than resume it?

Since MDT 2010 you can do this really easy. In your DeploymentShare you’ll find a script called LTISusped.wsf.
You just need to run a command line calling it during you’re task sequence like in this example:
cscript.exe %SCRIPTROOT%\LTISuspend.wsf

To resume it, just double-click the “Resume Task Sequence” icon on the desktop (similar to the image below) and you’re done! :)

Deployment Tips - Lenovo ThinkPad Drivers Pack for SCCM

Following other posts about drivers packs, today I would like to post about Lenovo Thinkpad drivers.
Lenovo uses a different terminology (SCCM Drivers) but of course they can be used direclty on MDT.

You’ll find this SCCM packages directly on Lenovo support website and basically you just need to select the model you need and you’ll find the drivers pack, or you can just Google something like “thinkpad t450 sccm drivers pack” and you’ll get directly to the download website.

Here’s an example: After searching for “thinkpad 440 sccm drivers” you’ll be redirect to http://support.lenovo.com/pt/en/downloads/ds030230 and you get the list of SCCM drivers available for that model and compatible models.
