Powershell Add-Windowsfeature

Need a little help. I have this PowerShell script than bombs out halfway through I think. Here is the script:

Import-Module ServerManager | Out-File c:\Temp\test.txt -append -width 300
Add-WindowsFeature Web-Static-Content,Web-Default-Doc,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Net-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Log-Libraries,Web-Http-Tracing,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Filtering,Web-Stat-Compression,Web-Mgmt-Console,Web-Scripting-Tools,Web-Client-Auth | Out-File c:\Temp\test.txt -append -width 300
Add-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS | Out-File c:\Temp\test.txt -append -width 300
Add-WindowsFeature MSMQ-SERVER, MSMQ-Directory | Out-File c:\Temp\test.txt -append -width 300
Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework-Core | Out-File c:\Temp\test.txt -append -width 300
Set-executionpolicy Restricted | Out-File c:\Temp\test.txt -append -width 300
Restart-Computer | Out-File c:\Temp\test.txt -append -width 300

I am thinking because a couple of items down a reboot is required after install. Here is the log output. The two bottom items failed and there is not enough in the log file to tell. A more robust output would be nice. :) Thanks!

First why are you specifying a width if you need the output from the command ?

Second, since some of these will need a reboot as clearly indicated above, some features will not install with a pending reboot.

If you notice after the first step with a required reboot the others fail, you need to do your reboots and then continue your install.

I switched the order of commands in the script to put the reboot one at the end. Works great now!
