Configuration Manager 2303 - No OSD Task Sequence Progress

Hi All!

Have just upgraded to Configuration Manager 2303 and done an OSD. The OSD Task Sequence progress bar disappears once it gets to the the Setup Windows and Configuration Manager step (the first part of the Task Sequence after it boots out of WinPE to installed Windows).

Had an unattend.xml file with Skip User OOBE = true. This has worked for years, but it seems as though this "Unsupported" method has now well and truly been removed.

Has anyone got any solutions to getting the OSD progress bar to show again?

Many thanks in advance

    Hi, @J Worth

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Based on the provided context, it seems that the OSD Task Sequence progress bar disappears once it reaches the Setup Windows and Configuration Manager step. This issue might be caused by the use of an unattended.xml file with the "Skip User OOBE" set to "true," which is no longer supported.

    To get the OSD progress bar to show again, you can try to remove the custom SetupComplete.cmd file, if there is any.

    To do this, add a Run Command Line task between the Apply Operating System and Setup Windows and ConfigMgr tasks, and enter the following command in the command line:

    cmd.exe /c del SetupComplete.cmd %OSDTargetSystemDrive%\Windows\Setup\Scripts /F /Q

    Alternatively, if it's specified in a Run Command Line task between the Apply Operating System and Setup Windows and ConfigMgr tasks, remove the Run Command Line task from the task sequence.

    I'm not using any custom unattend.xml file, I'm just allowing the TS to auto generate one based on the settings I've chosen in the TS.

    I haven't had any issues with the Progress UI not appearing after the Setup Windows and Configuration Manager Step.

    There are a few minutes while the device is setting up before the Setup Complete process triggers the Task Sequence to kick back in, but that's normal. Once the Setup Complete Triggers, you should see the Progress UI start again.

    Can you confirm the TS finishes all steps, and end successfully even though you don't see the Progress UI?

    I'm on the latest CM (2303)
