Important when reinstallating the computer

Before:

  • The computer needs to be on campus, connected to the wired network, i.e. placed in your docking station or via a network cable. Make sure that the power adapter is connected, the installation will abort if it detects a machine just running on battery.
  • Do not have USB memories, external hard drives or extra internal harddrive connected to the computer. The data on the devices may be deleted during reinstallation.
  • Make sure that all important files are saved in the home directory on G: (or in OneDrive, Office 365 Groups or Common L:).
    All files on the local hard drive (C:) will be deleted. Also files on the desktop will be deleted during the reinstallation.
  • If using some tool for synchronisation, make sure that the synchronisation is done recently.

After:

  • For laptops: Do not restart or undock the computer for 30 minutes. The first time you log in customized applications and policies will be downloaded. Before you can use the laptop wirelessly or outside campus, you must log in to the JU network while on campus once, with the computer in the docking station or connected with a network cable.
  • Some applications need to be downloaded from a server. In Windows 10, you find these in the Software Center on the desktop. Start the application and run the installation while the computer is connected with a network cable on campus. Note: It may take several hours after reinstallation of the computer until all applications are shown in Software Center.
  • Note that Common JU Files and Personal JU Files (your home directory) are accessed via shortcuts on the desktop (for staff)
