Hi Everyone-

I am attempting to set the boot timeout to match or build specification and am running it some difficulty getting this setting to stick.

I have used a task sequence and synchronous commands in the Unattended.xml. The sequence still fails.

I believe it is because the session needs to be elevated to Admin. The command I am using in MDT 2010 task is.

cmd /c bcdedit /timeout 5


Is this correct, how do you all set this variable.

i havent tried that setting but almost everything can be set with a .Reg script

and try the HKLM section first so it is system wide instead of user specific

report back if it works!
