hello all,

We are try to deploy windows 10 to multiple computers say 1000. Are there any options in WDS or MDT to name the PC's according to their names in the bios. Also how can we deploy to different machines which have different configurations?
server is 2012 R2

Possibly. Depends on id the "name" in the bios is exposed in an industry standard way. MDT will sett the %assettag% variable during gather, for example. You may also be able to query using WMI.

As to the second, certainly doable. That's one of the main reasons to use MDT. But entire books exist on the subject. No way can I answer such a broad question with a paragraph here.

Search amazon for deployment fundamentals. The most recent edition is volume 6 I believe.
