Manual Registration of a Windows Device in Windows Autopilot

Modified on Thu, 20 Jul 2023 at 03:05 PM

This guide will walk you through the steps to manually register a Windows device in Windows Autopilot using PowerShell:

  1. Open an administrative PowerShell session. If you're on a new PC going through the Out Of Box Experience (OOBE), press SHIFT+F10 to open an administrative command prompt. From here, type PowerShell and press enter to initiate a PowerShell session.
  2. Ensure the device has an internet connection. If you're using a laptop, you can continue with the OOBE setup until you're connected to Wi-Fi. After establishing the connection, stop and revert to your PowerShell session to follow the rest of the steps.
  3. Use the command Install-Script Get-WindowsAutoPilotInfo and answer 'Y' to all the confirmations.
  4. Next, set the execution policy to unrestricted to avoid errors when using the script. Enter the command Set-Executionpolicy Unrestricted.
  5. Now, you can run the get-windowsautopilotinfo script. If you run the script without any parameters, the hardware hash will display as output. Use the following command: Get-WindowsAutoPilotInfo.ps1.
  6. To register the device directly, add the parameter -Online. This parameter instructs the script to register the device directly with the online Autopilot deployment service. During this step, you will be prompted for user authentication. Provide credentials for a user who is authorized to add devices to Autopilot. Use the command: Get-WindowsAutoPilotInfo.ps1 -Online.

Note: Always ensure you are running these commands with appropriate administrative permissions to avoid potential issues.
