OSD on to machine that was previously in use....
Ok so how does one do this....
We had a machine in use in classroom 1, classroom 1 got upgraded and that PC was left as a spare and wiped clean. Now we want to use that PC from classroom 1 in classroom 2, but i can't get it to PXE boot because as far as I'm aware, SCCM still thinks this PC exists in some form.
I've tried importing it manually, but that didn't work. I've tried some random queries to search for duplicates but none of the ones that query by mac address that google finds for me will work in 2012 as they're all 2007 queries.
So how do i manage a situation where one PC gets removed and replaced by another PC which takes over the old PCs previous name without running into problems when i want to reimage the old one?

Have another check under 'All systems' that the PC isn't there (and if so right click/delete).
The chaps here used to do a reset of the motherboards BIOS as well...

Put the below query into SCCM.
Run it with the mac address of the machine. It will return the machine name if it is in SCCM somewhere.
select SMS_R_System.Name, SMS_R_System.Client, SMS_R_System.ClientVersion, SMS_R_System.MACAddresses from SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.MACAddresses like ##PRM:SMS_R_System.MACAddresses##

Did you put the above in without tweaking, run it and put the mac in the prompt box? Did you put the colons in?

Ah, when i tried to put it in without tweaking it told me the syntax was wrong, then i deleted the bit with the hashes on the end, went out of the query and back in again and i was able to just edit it the easy way using selection boxes. Was that wrong?

Found that quite useful, but interestingly whether i leave this one PC as unknown by deleting it, or even if i add its mac address manually, i still can't get it to PXE boot...goes straight to PXE Abort, any ideas what could be the cause?
