Partitions: MDT 2013 Update 1 Build 8298 Default UEFI Partitions


Continuing from my last post on BIOS Partitions, I’ll explain the UEFI side of things

2015-10-27_11-27-09

On a UEFI system 4 partitions will be created.

  • Boot / 499MB / FAT32 / EFI Bootable
  • MSR / 128MB
  • Windows / 99% Remainder / NTFS
  • Recovery / 100% Remainder / NTFS

I added a pause in my Task Sequence right after the Format and Partition Disk (UEFI) step and on a 127GB drive in Hyper-V, this was my layout:

  • BOOT/ 499MB / NTFS / EFI Bootable
  • MSR / 128MB
  • Windows / 125GB / NTFS
  • Recovery / 1299MB / NTFS

Very similar to BIOS (in relation to the size of my Recovery Partition), and this variance in Recovery Partition sizes has led me to come up with my own solution.
