Windows Autopilot white glove feature has been renamed to Windows Autopilot for pre-provisioned deployment. The pre-provisioning service allows partners or IT staff to pre-provision a fully configured and business-ready Windows 10 PC. From the end user’s perspective, the Windows Autopilot user-driven experience is unchanged, but getting their device to a fully provisioned state is faster.
I recently encountered a problem with the process while deploying Windows 10 v1909.
This UAC prompt for User OOBE Create Elevated Object Server appeared just after the Device setup phase.
Clicking No caused a real problem and the process started again, this time getting stuck for hours trying to join the organization. This was never going to work. I could see in the MEM console that the device had joined Azure AD and enrolled in Intune and the apps had successfully installed.
The prompt is caused by a setting in the security baseline - Local Policies Security Options > Administrator elevation prompt behaviour. It was configured by default to Prompt for consent on the secure desktop. Changing that to Prompt for consent on non-Windows binaries did the trick and removed the prompt.
Thanks to my former colleague Dan Padgett for figuring that out.
Until next time.....
