    Angry Force a specific default lock screen image no longer working

    Hello,

    Updating computers to Windows 8 and everything has been going fine. However all of a sudden the gpo Computer Configuration>Policies>Administrative Templates>Control Panel>Personalization>Force a specific default lock screen image no longer works on new imaged computers.

    They are running Windows 8 Pro and are part of the domain.

    Any ideas? Dont want the Seattle image to be there in September

    Thank you.

    I've found for all the W8 images i've rolled out so far, the November 2012 Update Rollup is required before that GPO is able to change the lock screen.

    FIXED

    I feel a bit silly but our KMS server was off so new computers weren't activating after sysprep and as you cant customise the lock screen until windows 8 is activated. Powered on the KMS server. Ran slmgr.vbs /ato and now nice banded lock screen
