Like us, you may have recently spotted Windows 10 version 2004 being released with its partners in crime Windows ADK and WinPE version 2004.

It's always exciting to us geeks when a new Windows 10 version is released, but wait, stop, take a deep breath and remember to wash your hands!

STOP! There's something lurking in Windows 10 version 2004 that will upset your smoothly working ENGL Imaging Toolkit deployment, but what could it be?!

What we've found so far

In our initial tests we found issues with Imaging Toolkit 11.0.8 where BIOS/EFI is incorrectly detected by our imaging front-end and deployment process when used with Windows 10 version 2004 and/or ADK/WinPE version 2004. This has various side effects that include disk partitioning logic and accessing ZISD/EBD.

So what's the good, the bad and ugly?

The good news is we've fixed the issue but it will require changes to various binary components in Imaging Toolkit.

Come on, what's the solution?!

The solution will be Imaging Toolkit 11.0.9, which we are vigorously testing and will make available soon.

In a nutshell

Do NOT use ADK / WinPE version 2004 with Imaging Toolkit and do not attempt to deploy Windows 10 version 2004. If you have already updated to ADK / WinPE verson 2004, please log a support ticket and we will discuss your options.

In the mean time, stay safe and ensure you are at least 100m from Windows 10 version 2004.

UPDATE: July 27, 2020 

On July 27, 2020 we released Imaging Toolkit 11.0.9 that includes support for Windows 10 version 2004 (requires Windows ADK / WinPE 2004).

Note: If using ZENworks, Windows 10 version 2004 is only officially supported by Microfocus with ZCM 2020 Update 1 and above.
