SCCM 1511 – All prerequisites, in PowerShell

Just a warning, there’s a FEW things you can’t install w/ PowerShell, so make sure that you still do these steps manually:

  • Use ADSI Edit to create a Systems\Systems Management Container
  • Give your SCCM Primary site computer account ‘Full Control’ permissions of this and all descendant objects

Beyond that, this PowerShell script will install all of the Non-SQL Pre-requisites for you.

To use, first, download the Windows 10 ADK from this  link.  Place it in a folder called _Software\ADK at the root of a drive.

Next, download the x86 and x64 bit MS XML Parsers, available, uh in the links to the left. Put these both within the same _Software folder.

Finally, insert a Windows Server install disk (for your appropriate OS Version) to the machine.

Then, run this code to install all Prerequisites in record time!

$drives = Get-PSDrive -PSProvider FileSystem
$PrereqDrive = $drives.Root | ? ({Test-Path $_\_Software})
if (test-path "$($PrereqDrive)_Software"){
    $PreReqSrc = "$($PrereqDrive)_Software"
    Write-Host "SCCM Prereq source found at $PreReqSrc"
    Write-Warning "Couldn't find a source folder called '_Software' at the root of any drive"

$ServerISODrive = $drives.Root | ? ({Test-Path $_\Sources})
$ServerSXSSrc = "$($ServerISODrive)Sources"

Write-Host "Installing MSXML Prereqs..."
    try {
Msiexec /i $PreReqSrc\msxml6.msi /passive /l*+ %windir%\temp\SCCM_MSXML6.log
msiexec /i $PreReqSrc\msxml6_x64.msi /passive /l*+ %windir%\temp\SCCM_MSXML6_64.log
    catch {
    Write-Warning "Ensure that MSXML files were placed within $PreReqSrc"
