Hi K-Mart yes its the enterprise environment Do you have the command to change or rename the computer from powershell
->Need to retrieve PC name and later change back to the original name Boot to Win PE (for Win 10 v1809 32bit) Need a script that will run in WinPE and do the following: Load the registry hive of the computer into WinPE Get the computer name from the registry (probably HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName\ComputerName) Save the computer name to a temporary folder on the USB Partion & format the drive then install the image (my process). After Windows setup is complete, a new PC name will be generated, so need an additional script to: change the computer name back to the original name. NOTES: An underline will be used in the original name, so a warning about non-standard characters will be likely and a restart required for the name to change. When manually changing the name, the older process (like Win7) from Control Panel / System / Advanced System Settings / Computer Name tab / [Change] button works... but the simplified Windows 10 way (Setting / System / About / [Rename this PC]) does not allow the use of the underline in the PC name.
