HP PCs - How to Configure an OSD Task Sequence to Deploy Intel Optane in SCCM

This document is for deploying operating systems using System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) on your HP computers configured with Intel Optane solid state drives (SSD).
To create an association between the Optane Module and SSD, you need to update the boot image with the appropriate RST driver that can be found in HP WinPE 1.80 driver pack. The steps in this document explain how to inject the drivers into the boot image, create the package for the utility, and use it to set up the process in your environment.

Requirements for creating a boot sequence

To create a boot sequence, you need the following:
  • Intel RSTCLIPro.exe command line utility: This utility is required to manipulate the Optane Module while in WinPE. It can be obtained from the current Intel RST driver softpaq for the platform which requires to be reimaged.
    Go to the HP Software and Drivers page for your computer model or download HP Image Assistant to obtain the Intel RST driver softpaq. Extract and save RSTCLI64.exe to the SPXXXXX\bin\src\Tools\WinPE folder.
    note:
    The version of the RST driver command line utility must align with the version of the RST driver injected into your WinPE boot.wim.
  • HP WinPE 10 Prebuilt Driver Pack Version 1.80: Currently, Intel RST Driver 17.8 is included with the latest HP WinPE 1.80 prebuilt driver pack.

Create or import Optane Task Sequence

Create the WMI queries to target the larger volume disk for formatting and partitioning.
note:
The first WMI query enables the partitioning of the larger volume disk if the Optane module enumerates as Disk 0, and the second WMI query enables the partitioning if the Optane module randomly enumerates as Disk 1 and for systems where Intel Optane is not used.
  1. Create a partition step that specifically partitions Disk 1. Add a WMI query to this step to make sure it only runs if Disk 0 is smaller than 34 GB. It formats and partitions the larger volume for imaging.
    Preparing Disk 1 for partitioning
    The WMI query for this is: SELECT * FROM Win32_DiskDrive Where Index = "0" AND Size < 34359738368
    WMI Query to check size of Disk 0
  2. Create a partition step that specifically partitions Disk 0. Add the WMI query to this step to to make sure it only runs if Disk 0 is greater than 34 GB.
    Preparing Disk 0 for partitioning
    The WMI query for this is: SELECT * FROM Win32_DiskDrive Where Index = "0" AND Size > 34359738368
    WMI Query to check size of Disk 0

Inject WinPE Driverpack

After downloading HP WinPE pack, you can use one of the following methods to inject the pack.

Create the RSTCLI64 Utility package in SCCM

Once you have the driver in the boot image you need to create a package in SCCM for the RSTCLIPro.exe command line utility so that you can use it in your Task Sequence.
  1. Go to the HP Software and Drivers page for your computer or download HP Image Assistant to obtain the Intel RST driver softpaq.
  2. Extract and save RSTCLI64.exe to the SPXXXXX\bin\src\Tools\WinPE folder.
  3. Copy the RSTCLI64.exe utility to a shared location on the SCCM server to use as a source folder for the package.
    Save RSTCLI64.exe utility to shared folder
  4. Create an SCCM package that uses this folder as the source of the package.
    Run the package wizard, and then click Create Package. Assign it a name, such as RSTCLI64 Utility.
    Create a Package
  5. Make sure to select the checkbox This package contains source files.
    Package options
  6. Browse to the shared folder created earlier and click Next.
  7. On the Program Type screen, select Do not create a program.
    Selecting program type option
  8. Follow the prompts in the wizard to complete the package creation.
  9. Update the newly created package on your distribution points so it can be used by your task sequence.
    Update the package on distribution points

Set up the Task Sequence

The Task Sequence for the SCCM OS deployment can be built using the package and boot image the WinPE 1.80 driver pack was injected into.
note:
The boot image can also be assigned after creating the Task Sequence. Right-click the Task Sequence and select Properties, and then on the Advanced tab select the option Use a boot image.
note:
Depending on your deployment process you might need to do additional customizations to these steps.

Create Optane association

Use a Run Command Line step that starts in the package created for the RSTCLIPro utility.
note:
This command is case-sensitive. Type it exactly as shown or the step will fail.
There are two dashes before OptaneMemory and enable.
Run the Optane enable command --OptaneMemory --enable.
Enable Optane association
