Boxstarter Windows 10 Configuration
<
<#
The command to run, built from the raw link of this gist
Win+R
iexplore http://boxstarter.org/package/url?<RAW GIST LINK>
OR (if you don't like the way the web launcher force re-installs everything)
Create another script like the following to install and run the gist:
. { iwr -useb http://boxstarter.org/bootstrapper.ps1 } | iex; get-boxstarter -Force
install-boxstarterpackage -PackgeName <RAW GIST URL>
NOTES:
- This may need to be run a few times to get 100% to a finished state (though it should reboot and pick up where it left off)
- If you use windows hello or fingerprint scanning for authentication then just press enter 3x when
prompted for a password (and know that passwordless relogin will not work after a reboot)
- You will almost certainly want to modify the configuration and every other aspect of this script
to meet your own needs.
#>
# Boxstarter options
$Boxstarter.RebootOk=$false # Allow reboots?
$Boxstarter.NoPassword=$false # Is this a machine with no login password?
$Boxstarter.AutoLogin=$false # Save my password securely and auto-login after a reboot
# All of the configuration tasks that will be run.
