Hi All,

We are using MDT to deploy Win10 run well in the past years. I wonder if there is a way to ask user to select deployment type when using MDT.

NEWCOMPUTER will format the whole disk and device the disk per the predefined rules.
Refresh will only reinstall the OS on system drive.

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft MECM Q&A forum.

    Here is a similar thread for your reference:
    MDT 2012: What's the difference between "DeploymentType=NewCOMPUTER" and "DeploymentType=Refresh"?

    Thanks for your time.

    Best regards,
    Simon

    Hi Simon,

    Thanks for your answer and I check the post you provided, in the linked page, the answer is Deploymenttype based on Modules. I can achieve it, but it is useless. It is better that a window can be popped up when deploying OS with MDT and user can select "Reinstall" or "Fresh install"
