Create a Metro design MDT Progress Bar Part 2


In this post I will show you a Progress Bar with Windows 10 design that I have done to replace the existing MDT progress bar. This progress bar looks like to this one from Windows 10, for updates or upgrade.
In my previous post I shared a first metro design progress bar., see here. Both of them use MDT variables mentioned in my article here.

Prerequisites

- Add PowerShell in your Boot image

How to get the GUI ?



How to use it ?

1 / Copy the folder MDT_WPF_Progress_W10Like in your deploy folder.
This folder contains the 3 PS1 files.
- The Run_Progress.ps1 is used to run the ProgressBar script in a external process.
- The MDT_Progress_W10_WPF.ps1 is used to display the GUI with a progress bar.

2 / Add two steps at the first place of your TS, as below:

The first one called Run Metro progress, is cnfigured as below:
Run Metro Part step
The second called Wait for GUI is configured as below:


Wait for GUI step
Add the same step after each reboot. I will try to find soon a solution to automatize this process.

3 / Hide the existing MDT progress Bar, to do this comment the function ReportProgress and  add the below part in the script ZTIUtility.vbs. 
See the post from Michael Niehaus.

How it works ?

The Run_Progress.ps1 file that you added in the Task sequence, launches the progress bar script.
See below how to use it, depending of the progress bar you want.
See below the scripts to display two differents style of progress bar.
