How to Manually Register a Windows Device to Intune With Autopilot

Sometimes you have to re-enroll a device into Autopilot in order to fix an issue.

If you replace the system board of a device, you will end up having to re-enroll that device into Intune since the device now has a new hardware hash. The process is easy enough, so I wrote up a quick step-by-step PDF based on the steps provided by Microsoft.

You can view and save the instructions by clicking here, or you can view the steps below.

The following instructions assume you have reimaged the device and it is in an unconfigured state.

  1. Make sure the device is connected to the internet.

  2. Open a Command Prompt ( Shift+F10 or Shift+Fn+F10 )

  3. Enter the following commands one-by-one in the command prompt:

    1PowerShell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass
    2Install-Script -Name Get-WindowsAutopilotInfo -Force
    3Set-ExecutionPolicy -Scope Process -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
    4Get-WindowsAutopilotInfo -Online
  4. You will be prompted to sign in. An account with the Intune Administrator role is sufficient, and the device hash will then be uploaded automatically.

  5. After you confirm the details of the uploaded device hash, run a sync in the Microsoft Intune admin center. Select Devices > Windows > Windows enrollment > Devices (under Windows Autopilot Deployment Program) > Sync.

  6. While you are still in the Devices tab, search the serial number or service tag of the device you just added. It may take a few minutes to appear.

  7. After the device appears in your device list, and an Autopilot profile is assigned (takes 10 - 30 minutes), restarting the device causes OOBE to run through the Windows Autopilot provisioning process.

Once a profile has been assigned, restart the device, it should download the Autopilot Profile and be ready to sign into.
