Windows AutoPilot now Available !

Microsoft team announced the availability of Windows AutoPilot a suite of capabilities designed to simplify and modernize the deployment and management of new Windows 10 PCs.


With Windows AutoPilot, IT professionals can customize the Out of Box Experience (OOBE) for Windows 10 PCs and enable end users to take a brand-new Windows 10 device and—with just a few clicks—have a fully-configured device ready for business use. There are no images to deploy, no drivers to inject, and no infrastructure to manage. Most importantly, users can go through the process independently, without making any decisions and without needing to involve IT.

Windows AutoPilot allows you to:

  • Automatically join devices to Azure Active Directory
  • Auto-enroll devices into MDM services, such as Intune (Requires an Azure AD Premium subscription)
  • Restrict the Administrator account creation
  • Create and auto-assign devices to configuration groups based on the devices' profile
  • Customize OOBE content specific to the organization

Prerequisites

  • Devices must be registered to the organization
  • Devices have to be pre-installed with Windows 10, version 1703 or later
  • Devices must have access to the internet
  • Azure AD premium P1 or P2
  • Microsoft Intune or other MDM services to manage your devices
