Updating WVD to Windows 2004/20H2 ***

***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 are 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.  Run the following command in PowerShell. If any results are returned, see the steps below for removing Microsoft app packages before proceeding:

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | where-object {$_.Name -like "*cortana*" -or $_.Name -like "*ppip*" -or $_.Name -like "*input*"} | Select name | sort name

5. Reboot VM

6.  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 the following to remove the package, changing the package name if necessary:

Remove-AppxPackage -AllUser -Package Microsoft.PPIProjection_10.0.18362.449_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy

6.  Power down template to set as image
