Time sync during OS Deployment

After Microsoft Surface arrived in our production environment we have been challenged by time sync issues during OS deployment. The Surface devices were so much off in date and time that they were rejected by the management point resulting in a failed Task Sequence.

Instead of powering up the Surface and adjusting the time manually i wanted to automate this during deployment. I found out that Niall Brady have made a timesync script that can sync the time on the client with a server using NET TIME.

Adding this script to the prestart command on the Boot image will then sync the time with the server specified prior to running the task sequence and voila – problem solved.
