EnableFastFirstSignin–howto set it up

EnableFastFirstSignin seems to be a semi-announced feature that is only possible to configure using a Provisioning Package. I think the official documentation states that it is in preview.

But, let’s not care about that

What is it?

This:

Is there  any documentation for this seemingly awesome black magic?

Yes, at Docs@Microsoft

How do I set it up?

Prerequisites

Windows 10 – 1809

Windows ADK – 1809 – Windows Imaging and Design Configuration

Brief overview of what you need todo;

· Configure Provisioning Package

· Generate Provisioning Package

· Install Provisioning Package

Configure / Generate package

Start Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer

Press to create Advanced Provisioning

Define the following settings:

Runtime Settings -> Policies -> Authentication ->

EnableFastFirstSignIn

Select Enabled

Runtime Settings -> SharedPC -> EnabledSharedPCMode

Select TRUE

Runtime Settings -> SharedPC -> AccountManagement -> AccountModel

Select Domain-joined only

Select Export -> Provisioning Package

Enter information regarding name of package, version. Information is arbitrarily set.

Owner is: IT Admin

Rank: 0 or 1

Press Next

Press Next

Select where to save the Provisioing Package

Press Next

Press Build

Press Finish

Install Package

Ensure you are using Windows 10 – 1809

Open an elevated Powershell prompt, using a local administrative account

NOTE: PackagePath is unique to the package name and environment you are working

Execute the following command to install:

Install-ProvisioningPackage -PackagePath “sample-name.ppkg” -QuietInstall

After this the awesome experience should be on whatever endpoint you installed this on. As far as I can tell all that remains is Group Policy Object processing.
