I need to add a pause to the build and capture task sequence so we can apply branding, install a couple pieces of software that don't work well with SCCM application deployments. How do I do this?

I know with MDT you could add a Suspend task to the sequence.

    Hi, @Daniel Kaliel

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    According to your description, I think you want to add a pause after the OS is installed, you may try to create a package with a vbscript and then call it in a Run Command Line like this:

    Option Explicit
    
    Dim WshShell, objShell
    
    'Create objects
    
    set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    
    'Run(command, window visibility, wait)
    
    call objShell.Run("cmd.exe /k date /t & time /t", 1, True)
    
    

    The vbscript will launch a command window and wait till it is closed, thus pausing your TS.
