MDT 2013 and Dell OptiPlex 5040 and 7440

I wanted to publicly thank Keith Garner of Keith's Consulting Blog ( ).

Keith created and maintains ( for free ) Powershell Scripts that will inject drivers into WinPE for PXE boots in MDT for Dell systems.

I recently got in new Dell OptiPlex 5040's and 7440's and was having an enormously hard time getting them to PXE boot and make a connection to the Deployment Share. Because Keith not only created the PS scripts but also keeps this updated, I was able to get this working. 
So I provided feedback to Dell last year about the schema on their DriverPackCatalog.xml file. I wanted to tie the Make & Model information from XML file directly with the SMBIOS data returned …

I'm going to start this by saying that as for technology and platforms, I'm all in with Google...

With that being said, something like this could really get me to rethink my Android Nexus 6P and my Moto 360.

Most people here know that I'm a patient / caregiver advocate for #IBD - #Crohns and #UlcerativeColitis . Health and being able to use technology to help bridge the gap between Doctors and Patients is very important to me.

While I'd rather stay all-in with Android and Google, I don't see Google Fit going in this direction.... Or atleast not in the degree so far that Apple has. I'm hoping that changes, because if it doesn't, Apple will win the watch and mobile device market. So much that it could even get me to switch. 
It has to do with Steve Jobs' health

The main issue is that these things are highly regulated. The data protection for patients is huge (and rightly so). The needed data security is also immense. But I don't think it will be a game changer even if Apple can pull it off before all the other clinical trial suppliers. Believe me. We would want nothing more than have reliable and continuous data throughout a clinical trial. It would make conclusions so much easier. Depending if we have the statistics of course. That would. Not be my field of expertise.

I'm making a new record and I'd love for you all to be part of it, My Loves!  The Girls From Ruby Falls (my new band) is a dream project of mine. I'm collaborating with incredible musicians to bring this project/story/album to life....but I can't do it alone.  

You all have always been so incredibly supportive of my musical dream and have been integral in my journey.  If you'd like to contribute to the making of this new record, please head over to our indiegogo campaign and pre-order our album. There are some super cool PERKS too!!

As Always,  THANK YOU!

All My Love,

p.s.- If you've been wondering where I've been lately...I've been busy dreaming up this new project!

p.p.s - It's never fun to ask people to donate to an artistic endeavor...especially when there are so many people and charities needing help.  Thank you for never making me feel badly for reaching out to you all for support.  I hope that my music, in some way helps to make the world a better place...even for a moment. :)

Is Your Son Starting To Consider High Schools??

If you have a son in the Southern New Jersey area starting to consider high schools, you'll want to ensure you check out +St. Augustine Preparatory School. In this video, St. Augustine Prep spotlights Class of 2016 Connor Lindsay.

Not only am I a alumni of the school, but I've had the great pleasure of working at St. Augustine Prep for the last 10 years! There's no better place in South Jersey for your son to get an education and prepare himself for his future

Using MDT 2013 to Install .NET 3.5 in Windows 10

So for the last week I've been struggling getting .NET 3.5 to install from the Task Sequence using Install Roles and Features. It appears that MDT 2013 U1 doesn't look for or can't find the \Sources\SxS folder in order to install it correctly.

After a few Google searches I came across this blog that helped tremendously.

Need Help with Windows 10 and Sysprep

If you are a Windows Enterprise person and have experience in Sysprep'ing windows images, I could use some help!

I have some Dell OptiPlex systems that Dell is not making the drivers for Windows 10. I have found the drivers manually on the net and have tested that they work correctly.

What I would like to do is a manual install of Windows 10 Enterprise, install all drivers needed, then Sysprep it but I need Sysprep to keep all the drivers. Is there a command I can run to Sysprep but keep all the related drivers to the system?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!! :)

What to expect with iOS 9.3....

iOS 9.3 is in the Beta 3 phase right now. Bernard from +BTNHD does a nice side by side video of iOS 9.2 and 9.3. These are just a few of the updates we can expect in the new release. My understanding is that there are even more features coming in this update.

Please visit my Google+ Page - The Crohn's Colitis Effect

I think my tagline describes me pretty accurately... 

I'm a proud father of two great boys. Domenic is my oldest, who has Crohn's Colitis Disease ( see my Google+ Page for information on it ) and my youngest, Anthony. It might sound cliche to say they are my world, but saying anything less just wouldn't be truthful. 

I truly believe that I'm blessed... I not only have two wonderful boys, but I also have a career that I absolutely love! I've been a Network Engineer for a little over 15 years now and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else! My Father always told me that you know when you've made it when you get out of bed in the morning and can't wait to get to work... Well, that's me! I not only love the type of work I do, but I also love where I do it. I work for a private high school, St. Augustine Prep in Richland, N.J. The best part about my job is that everything I do there, I know I'm impacting the lives of our students, in a positive way, for years to come. 

Are you curious about what circles to put me in?? Well, anyone you want! :) Seriously, I post about a wide range of stuff. Anything and everything that comes to mind.

I've been with Dr. Williams now for 10+ years. What keeps me going to him is the kind and friendly staff and their willingness to help me and work around my busy schedule. Besides that, Dr. Williams is one of the my personable doctors I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He is so kind, understanding, and truly "gets it". He takes the time to talk with me, understand what is going on with me, and works with me to help make my health the best it can be. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Williams and his staff. I'm sure you'll find the experience to be as good as I do.
