PS: Chocolatey


To add on to my previous post here, I wanted to find a way to revise my install scripts for faster automation of Windows 10 installs. I know I should be using WDS with MDT and have configured in my homelab, but in the power of self learning – I just wanted to see what I could do with Powershell alone with  the OEM image (I know, bring on the down votes!)

To Resolve:

1. First, I execute the following two statements manually in a Powershell admin prompt:

#After it installs, it will tell you that you should probably exit out of your script and start a new one, so I do that. Here is the .ps1 I run as admin afterwards:

NOTE: Adobe reader wasn’t working when I tried this so I just manually went to and installed. It still got most of the software. Now, all I have to do is run “cup all” from an admin PS Prompt to update each of these “packages”.

This can be found in my gwApplications section.
