NOTE: This guide is a legacy guide for Windows imaging. It really is comprehensive but outdated and should be utilized for learning purposes. If you are looking to image in a creation 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 and your employers time looking to get this work in an environment where WDS/MDT can be used.
This guide is designed to aid in deploying an image 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 straightforward Active Directory domain name, print server and document server. NOTE: Throughout the guide, workstation refers to the physical computer the specialist 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 2 2: Setup the digital machine with 40 gb of dynamic storage space, 4096mb of RAM/Memory, 2 primary processor and 64mb of VRAM. Step three 3: Mount Windows 10 Enterprise when you shoe the vm for the very first time.
Step 4: Accounts, hostname and other computer specific details should be established to placeholder beliefs. Most will be overridden by the answer documents so that it shouldn’t matter. Step 1 1: Install all applications and change all registry secrets needed for the image. Step two 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 user profiles will over be relocated.
Take this into consideration. Step 4 4: Do not install improvements, antivirus software, or whatever is exclusive or requires registration. This will be done later on. Step 5: Prior to 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 command prompt as an administrator and enter “vssadmin delete shadows /All /Quiet”. Users. Right click and strike properties. Uncheck everything except “Password never expires” that ought to be checked.
Set the password for the accounts to the default local admin password we use. Logout of the login and account to Administrator with new security password you established. Lastly, get into Computer Management again and delete all local user accounts except Administrator, DefaultAccount, Guest, and WDAGUtility. All should be impaired except Administrator. Step 17: Close control prompt and turn off 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 the VM is stored. Step three 3: Enable the Generalize checkbox. Step 4: Through the Shutdown Options checklist, select “Shutdown”. Hit ok and await the digital machine to shut down and close out automatically.
Step 5: For the workstation beyond your Virtual Machine, create Folder in root C drive called “Lab”. Place folder called “capture” inside. Step 6: Open VirtualBox and go into the settings for the Virtual Machine. Navigate to the Shared Folders tab and hit the plus button to add a folder.
Step 8: Navigate to the 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 previously as an IDE Controller as a CD (NOT A HARD DISK DRIVE). 64.iso if you didn’t by hand move it after working commands.
Step 10: Exit out of VirtualBox. Share to both your account and the Administrator user profile. Step 13: Startup Virtual Machine in VirtualBox and IMMEDIATELY hit F12 to enter boot options. Hit C for CD and then strike any key when prompted. Step 14: After loading a command fast should appear. Step 16: Type Exit into the command word prompt after the document transfer completes and then exit from the virtual machine.
