Last year I blogged about how to show DP in use during OSD you can find that posting here.

I’ve gotten some questions on how to display the correct computer name in the background with bginfo instead of the MININT-XXXXXXX name.

I’ve created a script with the following lines;

'// Purpose: Used to display correct computer name during OSD
'// Version: 1.0 - April 17, 2015 - Odd-Magne Kristoffersen
'// This script is provided "AS IS" with no warranties
Set env = CreateObject("Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment")

and saved it as SetComputerName.vbs in the Tools\x86 folder of my MDT Toolkit Package.

I then modified STEP_01.BGI and STEP_02.BGI files provided in the MDT Toolkit Package to utilize this VBScript and display the information, below you see what changes you need to make to each of the provided BGInfo files. Alternatively, you can download a copy of them already modified here and replace the ones already existing in you Tools\x86 folder of your MDT Toolkit Package.
23When done update the MDT Toolkit Package and start a new deployment and you’ll be able to see the correct computer name during deployment as shown below.
