***Article Formally Titled: WVD Windows 10 Ent Update to 2004 - ***Alert***

Applies to NFA WVD Only


We have found in several tests that the following process performed on your WVD Pool template and/or Golden Image (WVDSH00) has allowed successful deployments of hosts and dedicated WVD instances to Windows 2004/20H2 in Nerdio for Azure Environments.   

Here's those steps:

1.  Ensure a backup of the WVD Pool template or Golden Image (WVDSH00) has been taken
2.  Run all updates on the template/Golden Image including the Win10 2004/20H2 update and verify there are no pending updates completing by restarting the VM. 
3.  From an elevated command prompt run "winrm quickconfig".  Here's that output:

4.  Reboot VM

5.  Shutdown the template/Golden Image via the NAP to set as image 

Your image should now have the Win10 2004/20H2 update installed


Please note that there have been some known sysprep errors regarding Microsoft packages and the 2004 update.  Please see this thread for details if you run into a sysprep error setting your image:


Here's a summary of those steps from the link above that can be run on your template if you are running into a sysprep error, PLEASE VERIFY A BACKUP HAS BEEN TAKEN OF YOUR TEMPLATE OR GOLDEN IMAGE:

1.  Download the AppxDBEditor tool to the Template/Golden Image to C:\temp and extract this
2.   Edit the AppxDBditor AppxPackageList.txt to target the following packages:
     # Modern UI Dialog-App for entering Japanese Characters

     # App to project the Screen to a Wireless Display

     # Cortana

3.  Run the AppxDBEditor.cmd
    -  "M" is the option to modify these packages

4. Open a powershell command line as administrator
5. Run each of the following to remove the packages:
- Remove-AppxPackage -AllUser -Package *Input*
