1 Windows 7 Test Prep Ch 2 Configuring System Images Part 2

2 Based on this book

3 Lesson 1: Capturing System Images Last time: Creating an answer file – Saving it as unattend.xml on a UFD (USB Flash Drive) Creating a Reference Image Distributing an Image to Many Computers Using the Deployment Image Servicing and Management Tool Sysprep

4 Creating a Reference Image VHD Image – Requires Win 7 Enterprise or Ultimate – Capture an image of your current Win 7 computer and save the image to a VHD – Boot from the VHD Image on a network share – Any version of Win 7 is OK – The most common case, used to deploy Win 7 to many computers

5 Building a Reference Installation Insert a Win 7 Installation DVD Insert the UFD containing th answer file Restart the computer, boot from DVD

6 Preparing the Reference Computer for the End User In an elevated command prompt: c:\windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /oobe /generalize /shutdown – Sysprep removes user-specific and computer- specific settings, and log files – Generalize removes hardware-specific information from the Windows installation Including out-of-box drivers – OOBE will display Windows Welcome on the next restart

7 To Keep Drivers To preserve out-of-box device drivers – Set the PersistAllDeviceInstalls setting of the Microsoft-Windows-PnpSysprep feature to True in the answer file

8 Creating a Bootable Windows PE Medium 1.Create a local WinPE build directory with copype 2.Copy ImageX to the Iso subdirectory of your Windows PE build directory 3.Optionally, create a Wimscript.ini file to exclude files or folders from the image 4.Save Wimscript.ini to the Iso subdirectory of your Windows PE build directory 5.Create an ISO file witn Oscdimg 6.Burn the image to DVD or CD with 3 rd party software

9 Cruel Missing Steps Copy & rename winpe.wim to ISO\boot.wim Use DISM to mount the image for changes – Add boot files to the image Configure BCD store Use DISM to commit changes See us/library/dd744537(v=WS.10).aspx

10 Using Copype In an elevated command prompt: C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\copype.cmd – can be x86, amd64, or ia64 – is a path to the local directory Example: – copycpe.cmd x86 c:\winpe86

11 Using Oscdimg Usage: OSCDIMG [options] sourceroot targetfile oscdimg -n -bc:\winpe_x86\etfsboot.com c:\winpe_x86\ISO c:\winpe_x86\winpe_x86.iso -n: long file names -b: specifies file that will be written to the boot sector of the disk

12 Capturing the Installation onto a Network Share 1.Boot from your WinPE media 2.Use ImageX to capture an image 3.Copy the image to a network share
