NOTE: This guide is a legacy guide for Windows imaging. It really is comprehensive but obsolete, and should be utilized for learning purposes. If you’re seeking to image in a production environment, use faster methods through Windows Deployment Services, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, or through System Center Configuration Manager. USUALLY DO NOT waste your time, and effort as well as your employer’s time, looking to get this to work in an environment where WDS/MDT can be used.
This guide aims to aid in deploying a graphic of the Windows Operating System organization-wide without endpoint PXE booting and without a SCCM or MDT environment setup. It assumes you only have a simple Active Directory website, print out the server and document server. NOTE: Throughout the guide, workstation identifies the physical computer the technician is working on.

VM/Virtual Machine identifies the VirtualBox digital machine performing as the image. Step one 1: Install VirtualBox and get a Windows 10 Enterprise ISO. Step two 2: Setup the virtual machine with 40 gb of powerful storage, 4096mb of RAM/Memory, 2-core processor, and 64mb of VRAM. Step 3 3: Mount Windows 10 Enterprise when you boot the on for the very first time.
Step 4: Accounts, hostname and other computer specific details should be arranged to placeholder values. Most will be overridden by the answer files so it shouldn’t matter. Step 1 1: Install all applications and change all registry keys necessary for the image. Step 2 2: If making a Windows 10 image, add OEM Information to registry. Step three 3: The image will actually be an install template by means of a WIM document, so no consumer information will over be relocated.
Take this under consideration. Step 4 4: Usually do not install updates, antivirus software, or anything that is exclusive or requires sign up. This will be achieved later on. Step 5: Before starting with imaging, run a few maintenance duties in order to completely clean the vm. R and run “%TEMP%”. Delete everything in the folder. Step 6: Open a command prompt as an administrator and enter “sysadmin delete shadows /All /Quiet”. Users. Right click and strike properties. Uncheck everything except “Password never expires” that ought to be examined.
Set the password for the account to the default local admin security password we use. Logout of the accounts and login to Administrator with the new password you arranged. Lastly, go into Computer Management and delete all local user accounts except Administrator again, DefaultAccount, Guest, and WDAGUtility. All should be disabled except Administrator. Step 17: Close order prompt and shut down the virtual machine.
Step 18: Ensure Windows Preinstallation Environment is installed and the ISO is positioned on the C Drive of the workstation (not the VM). Ensure Windows ADK is installed on the technician workstation where in fact the VM is stored. Step 3 3: Enable the Generalize checkbox. Step 4: Through the Shutdown Options checklist, go for “Shutdown”. Hit ok and await the digital machine to turn off and close out automatically.
Step 5: Over the workstation outside the Virtual Machine, create a Folder in root C drive called “Lab”. Place folder called “capture” inside. Step 6: Open VirtualBox and go into the configurations for the Virtual Machine. Demand Shared Folders tab and hit the plus button to include a folder.
Step 8: Demand network tab and Change Adapter 1 to Host-only Adapter with VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter. Step 9: Navigate to storage and add the WINPE ISO document we created earlier as an IDE Controller as a CD (NOT JUST A HARD DRIVE). 64.iso if you didn’t personally move it after working commands.
Step 10: Exit out of VirtualBox. Share to both your user profile and the Administrator account. Step 13: Startup Virtual Machine in VirtualBox and IMMEDIATELY strike F12 to enter boot options. Hit C for CD and then hit any key when prompted. Step 14: After loading a command fast should show up. Step 16: Type Exit into the control prompt after the file transfer completes and then leave from the digital machine.
